[practical help in crisis] wings
Wings is a ministry of prayer and practical help that seeks to express the love of Christ by serving those who are experiencing difficult circumstances. We achieve this goal through three ministries: Angel Teams, Side by Side and Prayer.
Angel Teams: Responding to Specific Needs During Crisis
An angel team is formed to come alongside and help address the unexpected needs of the individual or family (whether a sudden illness, a death in the family or another life crisis). We provide gifts of service that are specifically tailored to each situation and may include rides to medical appointments, childcare, house and yard work, shopping and meal preparation.
Side by Side Ministry: Fellowship for Those Who Are Chronically Ill or Homebound
The Side by Side ministry connects volunteers—via calls and visits—with our Park Street seniors and those who are chronically ill and/or unable to leave their residences. Encouragement and support are provided through conversation, reading and prayer, resulting in genuine, meaningful relationships. Side by Side also organizes regular fellowship events. Our “Sunday Salons” are small social gatherings that help bring families and friends together for a time of celebration and fun.
The Wings Prayer Team is a dedicated group who joins together in regular fellowship to pray confidentially for the concerns and requests of those in the Park Street community.
You and/or your small group can:
• Become part of an Angel Team for a specific individual/family
• Provide childcare
• Contribute house/yard work
• Join Side by Side and take turns visiting an ill or homebound friend
• Prepare meals
• Help with administration
• Organize one-time special projects
