THE MUSTARD SEEDS 
TOGETHER SPREADING GOD’S LOVE  
An outreach ministry that involves the entire congregation, by utilizing the gifts that God has given us.  It is also a ministry that our entire congregation is welcome and encouraged to utilize both for themselves or for others they may know have a need. 
Do you feel you never seem to have enough time to be able to donate it to a large commitment? This is the ministry for you.  We all have time to make a phone call or stop over somebody’s home and change a light bulb and that can mean the world to somebody who is unable or it is too unsafe for them to do for themselves.  Everyone from age 2-102 are encouraged to get involved.  Below is a list of services we will be offering and we encourage you to figure out where God is calling your heart and ask that you sign up as well as offer suggestions for services that are heavy on your heart.  All services will be on a rotation so no one member is burdened and allows for all of our church members a chance to be a part of this important ministry.  So think about where God is calling you and get ready to join The Mustard Seeds in spreading God’s love.

 Companionship – a visit once a month or a phone call daily or weekly just to check in and make sure everything is alright. (Age 2 and up could participate here)

 Pick up and drop off medicine or ginger ale to someone who is unable or too ill to get it themselves

 Make an extra dish of your dinner and give it to someone who has just exited the hospital or has just had a baby

 Sit with a toddler for an hour and allow a mother a chance to run errands or take a nap

 A ride to a doctor appointment or chemotherapy treatment

 Set up someone’s medication for the week in a weekly pill container

 Planting a flower for someone who is unable to kneel on the ground but would love to have a beautiful flower to brighten their home (age 2 and up could participate here)

 Small odd jobs – light bulb changing, putting up storm windows, sweeping the floors, dusting, opening a jar that is stuck shut, etc…)

 Review and help with confusing medical bills (will help sort out what is covered and paid and help you settle any complications making it possible for you to pay less)  


All services are done and should be received with confidentiality.  We would like to make a list of reputable service personnel (plumbers, electricians, general contractors).  Names and numbers that we could give out that would allow our church family to feel secure. 


Yours in Christ,
