Blessed be our Visitation members, our Visitation Christmas tote bags filled this year with cookies, a handmade Christmas angel ornament, a prayer shawl, and a standing nativity scene. We had 10 members on our list this year that were delivered by our team. Special thanks to Jean Molitor for making the homemade cookies, to Bridget Winston for making the handmade angel ornaments, and to Ruth Ann Werner for making the lovely prayer shawls
Our visitation team is made up of staff and church members who regularly visit our home bound members. Home bound members of FUMCWA reside in care centers or in their own homes. When the visits are made to the home bound members they feel connected to the church and therefore belong to a special community, the FUMCWA.
During the holiday season, Christmas and Easter, a special gift is assembled by volunteers to be delivered by the visitation team. These gifts are received with happiness and joy.
The home bound are very thankful for these visits.
