Our Mandate

Through our Personal Services ministries, the church provides a variety of supportive services to people in need. We visit the sick and shut-in, we assist families who have loved ones, we serve as a referral agent for community resources, and we provide a number of support groups that provide ongoing spiritual encouragement to people with specific needs. The Personal Services ministries are committed to continually assessing the needs for our diverse community in an effort to educate, strengthen, and uplift the body of Christ.

Our Mission

The fundamental mission of Personal Services is to aid and support those in need, serve as a referral agent for community resources, and provide spiritual encouragement to those we serve. To this end, the Personal Services ministries are committed to continually assessing the needs for our diverse community in an effort to educate, strengthen, and uplift the body of Christ. It is also the mission of Personal Services to unify the various ministries that provide direct support to our congregants and community. In doing so, we will efficiently serve more individuals seeking our assistance. As a centralized department, we also serve as a resource for one another, sharing vital information that will develop our effectiveness.

Our Mandate

Each ministry arm of Personal Services has a specialized area of expertise for community support that endeavors to spiritually and intellectually develop the staff and volunteers therein. That support is provided through monthly meetings, around-the-clock support, and special services. Learn about each ministry group within Personal Services below.

The Communion Sick and Shut-in Ministry serves communion to church members who are unable to participate in congregational communion services due to illness and/or physical immobility. Ministers and volunteers go to the homes or bedsides of individuals who desire to partake in Holy Communion. If you know an ACOG member who wants to participate in communion services but their immobility is preventing them from participating, please let us know. The Communication Sick and Shut-in Ministry would be honored to visit him or her.
