Village Care

A family of Christ-followers who care for one another as Christ loves the church. We want to share some of the ways we express that care here at Village.

We are constantly discovering more ways to share the love of Christ with those around us and in our Village community. If we missed your ministry or you have an idea for us, please contact the Director of Pastoral Care Nancy Anderson. She is here to support and encourage you as you live out what John says in 1 John 3 verse 11 “For this is the message which you have heard from the beginning that we should love one another.” and verse 23 “And this is His commandment, that we believe in the name of His Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, just as He commanded us.” 

Please use these resources for yourself or someone in need. In addition, you may see where you could serve. Some of these ministries may be done from your home.


Visitation Teams

Homebound Ministry

For those homebound, whether temporarily or long-term, someone can contact you to offer prayer or find out how we may support you.

If you are interested in receiving training to serve with homebound visits, contact Nancy Anderson at [email protected].

Hospital ministry

For those in the hospital, someone can contact you to offer prayer or find out how we may support you and/or your family. If you let the office know of a planned surgery, we are here to help.

If you are interested in receiving training to serve with hospital visits, contact Nancy Anderson at [email protected].

Care Ministries

Compassionate Card and Calling Ministry

Here is something you can do from your kitchen table at home. Pour yourself a cup of your favorite tea and then either call someone or write a note or two to a person in need. It could be a homebound person, someone battling disease or heartache or loss, or a person serving the Lord who could use encouragement.

If you would like help or suggestions of names, please contact Heny Sadikin at 503.690.8311 .

Technical Support for the Elderly

Are you a senior without family members nearby who are skilled in answering your phone, computer, or printer questions? This team would love to drop by and help diagnose your technical challenges. For help, contact Nancy Anderson at [email protected].

Meals Ministry

This team provides opportunity to connect with and care for others in a practical way by providing a meal in times of need or crisis. We provide meals to those who have had surgery, an illness or injury, a new baby, or other event that may limit their ability to cook for themselves. Volunteers who sign up are asked to prepare and deliver a meal if they are available. How many and how often you participate is up to you – there is no minimum meal commitment and timing is flexible, so this can be a great option for folk who are not able to volunteer regularly.

For more information or to volunteer, please call/text or email Jean Alleman at [email protected] or 503.703.7952.

Widow’s Ministry

This compassionate group of widows meets for encouraging companionship through their spiritual, cultural, and social journey. They seek to be available for those newly widowed or those who come to Village as a widow. Their mission: “building a companionship and support network of Village widows, through the power of the Holy Spirit, as we grow in Christ and the newness God has for us.”

For more information, contact Dorothy Kelson at [email protected] or call her at 503.643.3167.

Knitting and Crocheting

This is another ministry where you can participate from inside your home or in periodic gatherings. This newly-formed ministry comes from the desire of Jackie Revilla to use the “love of making” through knit and crochet to bring hope and encouragement to the homebound, the ill, farm workers, or someone undergoing chemotherapy who could use a shawl of love around their shoulders. Perhaps we can knit or crochet for the homeless and distribute through Portland Rescue Mission.

Contact Jackie Revilla at [email protected] or 971-570-6815 if you would love to join this group.

Women’s Prayer Team

Sharing our hearts with our Heavenly Father through prayer is foundational to a deep connection to each other and our Lord. This intimate group of ladies regularly meets online in Kathy’s ZOOM ROOM on Thursday mornings from 10:00-10:45am. We welcome your attendance or come when you can.

To join, contact: Kathy Crawford at [email protected] and get on the list.

Memorial Ministry

When memorial situations for Villagers arise, a pastor and the director will meet with the family to assist in planning the service and carry-out the wishes of the family. It is our desire to give families as much support as possible during their time of grief. We have a team who help with technical needs, set-up of the facility, and hosting on the day of the service. There are currently opportunities to help with the memorial reception team by setting up, serving, and cleaning up afterwards.

If interested, contact Nancy Anderson  at [email protected].

Bereavement Ministry

Grief takes many forms when someone you love dies. No two people respond exactly the same, but we do know it is a process whether the death of your loved one is recent or in the past. Those of us navigating grief join together to share our stories and to seek God’s pathway through deepest heartache. Two times a year, we want to provide such a place where you can listen, learn, and grow with others in a confidential and caring setting.

If you are interested in such a class, contact Mary Roberts at [email protected].

Transportation for the Elderly

If interested, contact Nancy Anderson  at [email protected].
