Care at Marine View: "By this everyone will know you are my disciples, if you love one another."
Deacons - the role of the Deacons is to encourage a culture of care within the Marine View congregation. By reaching out to those in need and inviting the congregation to help meet existing needs, our Deacons provide a valuable connection point within the life of the congregation. The Deacon's care ministry extends to communion preparation and service, as well as caring for families by providing simple receptions at Memorial Services.
Breeze - Marine View Church Database
Follow-Up Tracker (an idea to consider) - Care Needs would be assigned through Breeze to the next available Deacon. Instead of waiting for needs to surface in parishes, needs would be addressed on a case by case basis through a rotating list of Deacons. Parishes may serve as the starting point for soliciting assistance from the congregation as a resource for helping meet the need. In addition, those who are new to Marine View would also receive follow-up through the follow-up tracker and rotating list of Deacons.
We are working on follow-up tracker through Breeze and another software system - we will keep you posted on our progress.
Meals, Rides and Memorial Services and More...
Sign-up genius is a helpful tool to encourage participation from the congregation in addressing needs that arise in our life together.
Here's an example of a sign-up genius link we used to help welcome Andy and Katie when they arrived at Marine View last fall. A similar sign-up could be utilized to invite those interested, to sign-up to help with rides, meals, memorial services and the like.
Breeze also has sign-up forms that could be utilized for this purpose.
