New Life Shepherds: A Ministry of Visitation to the Sick and the Homebound

Who are the Shepherds?

We are a group who are dedicated to Christ's service through visitation of the sick, the aged, and the lonely. Realizing that the Pastors are not always able to do so, some of us visit on a weekly basis, and others as needed.

All of us hope in this way to express Christ's love and concern to others who need to feel that compassion.

What do Shepherds do?

  • Depending on the needs of the individuals involved, we: Pray

  • Listen and encourage

  • Visit the homebound, hospitals, and care facilities

  • Make telephone calls

  • Provide communion to the homebound

  • Anoint with oil when requested

  • Send cards

  • Give extra-tender loving care, and comfort
