Connect & Care

The Connect & Care ministry at Orchard Hill is a volunteers-based group with a heart for the older generation. We reach out to older people in our congregation who are no longer able to get around well, often unable to get to church services, or are hit with illness or disability. This may leave folks feeling lonely and disconnected from their church family. The main focus of the team is making visits, although sometimes we may drive someone to a doctor visit or on an errand. Wonderful relationships are often built between the volunteers and the older generation.

This ministry serves in various ways which include:

  • home visits
  • nursing home visits
  • writing encouragement cards
  • making phone calls

This team meets together once a quarter as a group while serving in various ways throughout the rest of the year. People of all ages are invited to serve with this team.
