sunday worship @ 9:00 & 10:45 am
The Care ministry not only serves as the 'hands,' 'eyes,' and 'ears' of Jesus to the church body and community, but also equips gifted people to serve - to lead and care for one another.
Trained lay ministers are available. They provide man-to-man, woman-to-woman care for those who are experiencing life's normal spiritual or emotional difficulties, e.g. grief, illness, marriage, job situations, crisis pregnancies, etc. They are supportive, encouraging and are very beneficial for anyone -- inside or outside our church. Just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. You are not meant to walk alone as you deal during painful times and we are here to walk beside you.
At times we need help in a physical form. We help members and regular attendees with needs. This help may involve finances, financial counseling, home and car repair, and many other areas. Please complete the Benevolence Application by following the link below.
Join us as we come alongside our community by assisting our local paraprofessionals. As you know, this has been a difficult winter season with the weather. Paraprofessionals feel the impact more than most because they are indispensable hourly workers at our local public schools. They have now missed over ten days without pay in the last month due to school closures for snow days.
YOU CAN HELP! Please help us create a strong list of parapros that attend Midland Free or with whom we have connections. We can then mobilize our Care and Benevolence teams to help them in any way that we can.
Please send names and schools to Melanie: email

If you go to the hospital we want to be able to minister with you but we need to know you are there. Please be aware that hospitals are not allowed to communicate with the church that you are there because of privacy laws unless you ask them to tell us. We want to visit people in the hospital to encourage and pray but we need to know. Here are a few suggestions:
