Shepherd’s Staff

The mission of Shepherd’s Staff is to provide encouragement and compassionate, loving care in meeting the physical, emotional or spiritual needs of the members of our congregation. Shepherd’s Staff is comprised of three committees:

  • The Visitation Committee maintains a congregational presence with the shut-in members of St. Matthew’s through home visits made by volunteers.
  • The FOCUS Ministry’s goal is to assist members and their families in the affirmation of their faith when they have encountered the loss of a loved one.
  • The Home Care and Transportation Committee provides services on a short term basis for members who are faced with unanticipated changes in their lives. Services that are available include meals, light housekeeping, lawn care, snow shoveling, and transportation to church or physician office appointments. Whenever a need arises, Shepherd’s Staff can be contacted through the church office.

Strong congregational support allows us to offer these services. Please prayerfully consider how you can help.  To be a part of the Shepherd’s Staff or to request assistance, please contact Laurie Natzke.
