Ever wonder what happens to Sunday’s altar flowers? White’s Chapel shares the beauty of these flowers with those who have been unable to attend Sunday services. Weekly, talented volunteers change the large arrangements into smaller arrangements and personally deliver the arrangements to individuals of our church community who are ill, in healthcare facilities, homebound or hospitalized.
Prayer Shawl Ministry
Knitters and crocheters… pick up your needles! White’s Chapel has an opportunity for you to remind others of God’s love. By following a simple set of instructions at home (or on the road) your completed shawls are delivered by the pastoral staff or care teams to the hospitalized, ill, those in the midst of a crisis, or suffering a loss.
Card Care Ministry
Members of this team write and send cards once a month to uplift and comfort those dealing with long-term illness, or those needing continued encouragement. White’s Chapel provides the cards and postage. Volunteers may perform this ministry from home.
Meals in Time of Need
If you can provide an occasional meal to members of our church community, Meals In Time of Need would like for you join their team. Volunteers of this ministry are compassion in action, as they extend the love of Christ through delivering meals as needed to those of our church community. Meal requests are sent via email from “MealTrain” where you can see the requests, the calendar and sign up online.
Volunteers who serve as funeral ushers provide a warm, loving presence of Christ as they assist the officiating pastors, funeral director and families during the worship service celebrating the life of a loved one. Ushers, serving with the Coordinator of Care and Bereavement, greet, seat, and recess guests.
Funeral Reception Hosts
White’s Chapel may offer to host a reception to bereaved families, preceding or following a funeral/memorial service. Individuals serving on this committee provide a caring, comfortable atmosphere as the family and friends gather to share in a time together and a light snack. Working in conjunction with the Coordinator of Care and Bereavement, volunteer hostesses assist in the set up, serving, and cleanup for this ministry.
The above ministries would not take place without our loving and dedicated volunteers. If you would like to serve in one of these ministries or know someone that is in need and would benefit from one of these ministries, please contact:
Coordinator of Care and Bereavement

There are times individuals in our church community are unable to attend the activities or worship services at WC. This may be long term for a variety of reasons (i.e., illness, age, or recovery from surgery). Yet, with the support of our Good Samaritan volunteers, WC’s love of Christ is extended to the homebound, those in assisted living facilities and hospitals through personal visits. If you would like to become a Good Samaritan or know of someone who could benefit from a visiting Good Samaritan, contact the church office at 817-481-4147.
