Good Shepherd’s Hospital Ministry at Erlanger ICU started in 2011 as a one-time project by a Bible study class. From there it blossomed into a monthly project and has continued ever since on the first Friday of each month.
If you have ever had a loved one in ICU, you will know why we do it. We provide a free, usually hot, meal that doesn’t come out of a machine to around 60 people each month. We also offer prayer, as a group in each room before the meal, and individually if wanted.
Come and join us! Anyone is welcome to join us in this ministry. You can support this ministry by providing food, serving food or contributing financially.
We try to have at least 10 volunteers. That provides enough to serve food, wander around to talk, pray or otherwise provide comfort. Some of the same people have been doing it for a while, but we do have some new people or some who come intermittently and would welcome more.
We meet at church on the first Friday of each month, leave church by 11:30 and usually serve until 1:00 or 1:15. No skills needed! Debi Cate is the contact and sends an e-mail the Wednesday of the week before with the menu and other needs. Contact Debi to be added to the email list.
