Helping Hands Ministry
Through the Helping Hands Ministry at Midway, we all have an opportunity for blessing and being blessed in lending a hand to other families who may be facing a time of need or crisis. Midway has over 200 families, taking turns, working together to provide a meal, run an errand or care for child to provide rest and relief during a time of calamity. Caring for one another is a ministry of all of the people of Midway Church to all of the people of Midway Church. If your name is in the directory, you are not only eligible to receive the benefits of this caring ministry, as a part of the body of Christ, but also to serve others as the need arises.
How It Works
We are using a great website, TakeTheMeal.com, as a scheduling tool. Whenever a need arises, our Care Coordinator will create a schedule allowing others to volunteer to help the family. This schedule will be posted on the TakeTheMeal website, along with any necessary information. The coordinator will then send an email to our volunteers informing them of the need and the passcode to access the schedule. Volunteers may respond by going to the site and signing themselves up as their own schedule allows.
To become a volunteer, simply contact our Care Coordinator with your email address. There is no commitment or need to respond other than on those dates you actually wish to volunteer.
The Care Coordinator is completely dependent upon each of you to be informed of a need. Never assume we know. If you find yourself, your family, or a friend in a time of crisis, please do not hesitate to call for help. Let us know your needs. Our Care Coordinator can make arrangements for meals and meeting practical needs and can also enlist the aid of other ministries in the church when appropriate.
