caring ministry

The desire of this ministry is to glorify God by using our gifts of hospitality and compassion. We want to show the love of Jesus to people in practical ways by providing meals in a time of need.


Meal trains will be created for members of Upward Church after surgery, injury, birth of a baby or during a time of crisis.  We will provide meals for 1 week every night or 2 weeks every other night.


The meals coordinator is made aware of the need for meals by direct request for help or by word of mouth from other members of the church.  Volunteers will then be contacted by a group text with a link to a meal train scheduler.  Days will be chosen by the volunteer within the dates that have been selected.  Location, drop off time and food preferences will all be included in the meal train.  Meals may be home cooked or purchased.


The Caring Ministry is a great way to serve others, share Jesus and make a difference in someone's life.  In times of need it is a blessing to receive a ready made meal and see a friendly face.
