HousignSick And Shut-In & Visitation Ministry
Rev. Jackson & Visitation Members
Visitation includes visiting the Home-Bound, their family members and friends by showing love, sharing their burdens and helping to address their needs which can be accommodated.
We compile a list of our members who become ill, along with home-bound elders. We pray for the Sick and Shut-in Members during visitation or via phone. Our Visitation team schedule visits with them on the first & second Tuesdays of the month and offer communion to those who desire it.
Our visitation extends to Hospital visits, Nursing and Rehabilitation centers and Shelter Housing Visits.
Our Men's Ministry engage in Hospital and Home visitation
Our Women's Ministry visit (Senior Home facilities ,i.e. The Brooklyn United Methodist Home)
Our Intercessory Prayer visits Neighboring Shelters and offer fellowship, prayer and bible study.

The Care Group is a supportive group of Christians helping each other to grow as disciples of Christ. The Care Group was established to help members of the church who reside in the same geographical area to be in regular contact with each other for the purpose of sharing of themselves and support each other in the Christian faith.
We have approximately 28 Care Groups established consists of about 8 or more members. Care Group Leaders are assigned to oversee each group. Each leader's responsibility is to maintain contact among members; scheduling meetings which allows for sharing biblical principles, helping members in various areas of need. Care group also participate in visiting a shut-In member, hospital visits, or refer members' personal concerns to the Senior Pastor.
Each year the church designates a Care Group Sunday where all care groups worship together and take part in a fellowship after the service.
