Services for Homebound Members

Pastoral Care

If you are ill or otherwise unable to attend Divine Services in person, please contact the church office ( or 941-776-1395). We can schedule a time for Pastor to pray with you, absolve you, and give you communion, as appropriate.


Need a Friend? Be a Friend!

Matt. 25:36b,39-40 “I was sick and you visited me. I was in prison and you came to me… When did we see you sick or in prison and visit you? And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’ “

Have the events of the past few months made you feel like you are in a prison? Have you felt lonely, just wanting to hear a friendly voice and know someone cares? Faith Lutheran Church is a caring community of people. If you would like to receive a friendly phone call a few times a week, just saying “Hi! I care about you. How are you doing?” then contact the Church office and you will be teamed up with a new friend.

Would you like to be a friend, bringing a little love and sunshine into someone’s day? Perhaps a little ‘Son-shine’? Contact the Church office to be paired up. You are blessed to be a blessing to others.

For those members who are no longer able to be as mobile as they wish and need a little assistance with errands, please contact the church office and we will arrange help for you. Other members are willing to assist with light shopping, picking up medicine, or providing masks.
