Retirement Center Worship Service
One Suffers Alone
St. Andrew’s offers 15 trained Stephen Ministers to be matched
with hurting people throughout the community. Stephen Ministers care
for those dealing with grief, divorce, job loss, hospitalization, terminal
illness and other life difficulties. Each Stephen Minister is matched
with one person and all care is confidential and personal. To learn more,
contact Madeleine Murdock at 307-367-2222.
Center Worship Service
Every Monday at 10:30 a.m. a short Episcopal service is offered in the medical
wing of the Sublette County Retirement Center in Pinedale. For the attending
residents, scripture is read and old familiar hymns are sung. Volunteers from
St. Andrew's pass out materials for the session. They sit with attendees, visit
with them, and assist them in following the hymns and scripture. During the peace
offering, volunteers give a hug or hand shake and greeting to each participant.
It is a wonderful experience to see participant's faces light up as they sing
song or say the Lord's Prayer. Plan to schedule one
small hour of your week on Monday mornings to participate. Contact Coralee Petersen
to find out more about this ministry.
This ministry trains Lay Eucharistic Visitors (LEV) to take Communion
to the homebound of our parish. There are four
two-person teams who make these visits. If someone is aware of a
need, make a call to the church at 307-367-2674, prior to the Sunday
and a visit will be made.
