Members of the Pastoral Care Team visit shut-ins, the elderly, and church members who have been hospitalized.
Support Groups/Pastor’s Tea
Grief support and support for care-givers are formed, by need, as indicated by members of the congregation. Other groups may be formed as the need arises. The pastor and a trained counselor lead these groups.
Pastor’s Reception for New Members/Visitors
This is a scheduled event when new members, or visitors, are invited to have a relaxed time with the pastor and representatives from various committees within the church. At this event, attendees will hear about the mission of our church and the opportunities and services available to our congregants and community at large.
Prayer Quilt/Shawl Ministry
Making handmade quilts/shawls is an outreach ministry that combines the gift of prayer with the gift of a hand-tied quilt or handmade shawl. The purpose is to promote prayer for those facing life’s challenges.
Funeral Repass Meals
Members of our congregation who are experiencing the loss of a loved one may elect to have a meal served by our Congregational Care-Giving Team, immediately following the funeral service.
During special events, church members come together for fellowship at special times in the life of the church, or to honor and celebrate members of our congregation.
Intercessory Prayer Team
The Prayer Team commits to praying daily for those who have requested to be uplifted in prayer. Individuals requesting prayer may submit their request via the yellow card, which is found in the church pews, or by contacting the front office.

Harmony UMC’s Care Ministry provides compassionate caring concern through personal contact with members of the church family who have special needs for spiritual support. We are all about caring for one another as we our taught in the bible through the words of Jesus:
For the whole law is summed up in a single commandment, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.
All of us long for support and connections during times of joy and pain in our lives. Harmony strives to be a place of comfort and prayer for those going through day-to-day circumstances. As a community, Harmony UMC lifts up the needs of our friends and families, town, state, country and world to God to allow God to transform us and the world. When personal experiences are shared with the community of believers, we can all pray together and share the depth of connection that comes from seeking God together.
