The Life Stewardship Committee and the active deacons of Shades Crest have joined hands to "connect" adult new members and their families into the life of our church. Within a week of joining the church, a deacon is assigned by the New Member Connect leader, Tracy Green, to a new member family. The deacon delivers an up-to-date packet of information to the home of the new member and for six months strives to help them feel a part of their new church family.
Shades Crest's Woman's Missionary Union (WMU), along with Women on Mission, is announcing two new ministries. We are beginning a Medical Equipment Ministry to supply our church members access to equipment on a short term basis.
Also, we are beginning a Sewing Ministry. This ministry team will be making items such as pillowcases and other small items to bring encouragement to those less fortunate.
