Hospital & Home Communion

Communion, or the Lord's Supper, is an important part of a Christian's life and because they are in the hospital, confined at home or a nursing home does not exempt them from receiving Communion. At The Point we make it a part of our congregational care ministry to see that those who desire Communion, at the times the congregation receives it, or at their request and are confined to the hospital or home, are granted that request. Administering of Communion would follow Manual protocols.

Visitation

Visitation of those who attend The Point is an important part of our Congregational Care ministry.

Anyone needing encouragement, comfort, or a sense of belonging could enjoy a visit. While that could include everyone, there are certain individuals who especially need to be reminded that they are loved and not forgotten. These are people who can feel rather lonely at times:

  • Elderly people still living independently especially if they are shut-ins
  • Elderly or disabled people living at home or in nursing facilities
  • People who are sick for a prolonged period of time
  • People who are hospitalized
  • Bereaved people
  • Prisoners
  • People in shelters
  • People in crisis
  • If we are truly going to express care for one another, then we need to go where the people are. If you feel visitation is a ministry you would like to be a part of, you are encouraged to contact the church office at 812-522-2060.
