Congregational Care

Our goal as Christians is to become whole persons – in body, mind and spirit. To do that, we need each other.  Circumstances in our lives force us to lean on each other in times of grief, illness and loss. Congregational care simply means liberating the Body of Christ—our members—to work among us. Congregational Care Ministries provide care, concern, prayer and support for families and individuals at various stages, places and circumstances of life and engage the congregation in service and community with each other.

Lisa Miller, the congregational care minister, wants to know you! Lisa will usually be the person responding to emergencies.  She also visits hospitals and responds to other types of congregational care needs. Here at MUMC we offer care for each other through a variety of caring ministries.

Prayer Ministry/Prayer Emails

A large number of us at MUMC receive prayer emails each week. If you have a prayer request and would like to be put on our ongoing prayer chains, you may call the church office for the name and telephone number for our telephone prayer chain, or the name and email address to write to in order to be put on our e-mail prayer chain. You may also call the church office with any prayer requests (208) 888-2245.

Lay Chaplains

MUMC has several lay chaplains who visit, take meals, encourage and pray for those in a crisis or stressful situation. Lay chaplains regularly visit and keep in touch with those who are home bound or in assisted living facilities. Call the church office for the name and number of a lay chaplain if you, or someone you know, is need of some tender loving attention.

Healing & Prayer Ministry

Often in Scripture we read that Jesus was ‘moved by compassion’ to heal and free those in need. Here at MUMC we want to offer healing prayer too.
Lisa Miller is looking to develop a team of people who can be called on to pray on Sundays after services for individual needs and also for those in need of physical and emotional healing. Contact Lisa for healing prayer or if you are interested in becoming part of a healing prayer team.

‘For this is the message you have heard from the beginning, that we should love one another… We know love by this:  Jesus Christ laid down his life for us – and we ought to lay down our lives for one another… Dear children, let us love, not in word or speech, but in truth and action.’
– I John 3:11,16,18
