-takes communion to shut-ins and send get well and sympathy cards
-finds someone to transport a member  to a doctor’s appointment
-(during the school year) provides take-out meals from the Wednesday church dinners with help from Loaves and Fishes and (in the summer), provide meals each Wednesday night to our shut-ins.
-assembles “care packages” including water, snacks, and activity books for members and their family in the hospital
-delivers the "care packages" twice a week
