Benn’s Church Shepherd Card Ministry
Shepherd volunteers keep "watch" over a number of church families, usually 6-9 families in her/his care.
Shepherds get to know and keep in contact with their “flock families” throughout the year by checking on their well-being. Various ways to do this can include, chatting at church, making phone calls, sending handwritten notes, email, planned visits, etc. As well, most shepherds enjoy sending their flock members greeting cards for Holidays or special occasions such as: Christmas, Easter, Birthdays, Anniversaries, Get Well Cards, Accomplishments, etc.
Shepherds are asked to stand in support with their “flock members” during baptisms or when any new members join the church. The Shepherds coordinator will coordinate this effort.
The Shepherds usually meet twice a year, typically in May and again in October. The Shepherds host the last Thursday Night Dinner of the season by preparing and serving the dinner in May.
