Sylvania United Church of Christ
Claimed by God, Responding as Disciples
Service - Caring


This ministry fosters a spirit of community for those in our congregation. It helps to connect us with one another in a variety of ways.

Components of this program include:
Caring Callers - Our visitation ministry provides opportunities for volunteers to visit those who may find it difficult to regularly attend church activities.

Card/Note Writers - Seven teams rotate in writing notes to those in our congregation who may have joys or concerns.

The Prayer Chain - Prayers of thanksgiving and concern are raised upon request from members and friends of Sylvania UCC.*

"Thinking of you" boxes for College Students - Twice a year we send goodie boxes to our college students.

Other areas include...telephone support, transportation and providing meals.

*Prayer Requests - Those wishing to request prayers of joy or concern for the Prayer Chain may email them to Kristen Leverton,
