The NDUMC Visitation Ministry enhances faith, addresses spiritual needs, and is a vital part of our congregation's ministry to all. Find out more about our Visitation Ministry below:
The NDUMC Visitation Ministry Team provides supportive care to people referred
by the Pastor, church ministries, or church members or attendees who are in need of
supportive visitation. These needs could include, but are not limited to: end of life issues,
navigating long term care placement, illness, grief, divorce, job loss and loneliness. After
a person is referred they will be matched with a Visitation Volunteer.
After being matched with a person needing care, the Visitation Volunteer will meet with
that person on a regular basis. The visit can be in person or over the phone. The focus of
the visit will be to listen, care, encourage and provide emotional and spiritual support.
Visitation Volunteers can also offer Communion to those who would like to receive it.
The caring relationship will last as long as the need for care exists.
