Weekday Volunteers

Bereavement Meal Team
The Bereavement Meal ministry is a service we lovingly provide for families of Aldersgate after the death of a family member. It involves providing a meal before or after the funeral service, either at the home of the family or at the church. We are looking for volunteers to help with this ministry, either through the preparation of the food for the meal or through the setting up, serving, and cleaning up of the meal. Contact Linda Goforth ([email protected]) to join this team.
