Caring Ministries

God’s people serve both Him and others by approaching Him in prayer, seeking His plans and intervention and then offering our own humble service to help each other get through the ups and downs of life with Christian caring. 

"Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ." - Galatians 6:2

Hosanna! Food Pantry

Hosanna! offers those in need access to our food pantry, which is kept stocked by members of Hosanna! as well as a wide variety of community organizations such as scout troops, youth sports teams, high school service organizations, and individuals from the community. The requirement to receive 2 grocery bag of food every 4 weeks is to sign a sheet and show a valid photo ID each time you come into the church office.

The Food Pantry is open on the first and third Mondays of the month from 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm, and from 10:00 am - 1:00 pm on the first and third Tuesdays of the month (closed holidays).

Have a Prayer Request?

Hosanna! offers a variety of opportunities to connect with God through prayer.  

Hosanna! is taking online prayer requests! Click here and fill out the form and submit to let us know how we can pray for you.  Otherwise, please write it on a yellow prayer card (as found in the Worship Space seat backs) and either drop it in the offering plate or post it on the Prayer Board in the hallway across from the kitchen. These requests are printed in the next week's worship bulletins.

If you have a confidential prayer request, please write it on a prayer card, write the word CONFIDENTIAL on it, and place it in the offering plate. Also, if you have a prayer request that you would like placed on our confidential Prayer Chain, see below.

Prayer Chain Ministry

The Hosanna! Prayer Chain is an active group of “pray-ers” who faithfully lift up the prayers of those in our congregation and beyond. Prayer requests received are distributed to the Prayer Chain by e-mail and these requests are prayed for until an update is received.

This confidential ministry differs from our yellow prayer cards and Prayer Board in that prayer requests designated specifically for the Prayer Chain are not published in the bulletin (unless you request it).

If you have a prayer request you would like put on the Prayer Chain, please contact the church office or fill out our online Prayer Request form

"Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus." - 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

In the Hospital?

Please help us to care for you and your family by letting the church office know when a loved one has been hospitalized. HIPAA legislation prohibits the hospitals from contacting us directly, so often times we do not find out until much later that someone from the Hosanna! family was in the hospital.

If you or a member of your family is hospitalized, please contact the church office.

Need a Listening Ear?

Our congregation has a trained group of individuals, Stephen Ministers, who are available to provide confidential, one-on-one, male-to-male, female-to-female Christian care giving. Whether your problems are big or small, there is someone in our congregation who is ready to listen to you and provide care. Call the church office and we will put you in contact with one of the Stephen Ministry Leaders.

We also have an active Care Callers ministry. Care Callers place a phone call or make a brief visit with someone who is coming home from the hospital, recovering from illness or injury, grieving a loss in their life, or going through some other difficulty. For more information on our Care Callers Ministry, contact the church office to be put in touch with our Care Callers ministry coordinator.

Caring Resources for you and your loved ones

Care Notes is a series of small booklets faith-filled with wisdom, insight and comfort.  On the rolling kiosk in the Library you'll find a selection of Care Notes for you to take for yourself, or share with a friend in need. 

Also, check out the Hosanna! Library for books on many different care-related topics.
