Good Samaritan Ministry Team

by Ingrid Clark

This ministry will be a joint effort between St. Johns UMC and 1st UMC Texas City. We will partner in forming a group to go out and help church members or others in our community, who are unable to help themselves, with yard work or minor home maintenance. This ministry will start with assisting widows and widowers.
Opportunities for volunteers include but are not limited to:
 Photographers
 People to prepare meals
 People to run errands for supplies
 People to perform minor home repairs, yard work, etc.
Frequency: Quarterly or twice a year. To be determined based on need and support.
We will need a scout team to assess jobs prior to work day so we have the necessary tools and
John Mize will be the St. John’s rep and Eugene Holt will be the 1st UMC rep and they will work
together to assess the needs that are identified.
Future projects: Single moms, seniors, suggestions from congregation.
Goal is to shoot for first work day on Saturday, June 18th.
Next meeting May 31 @ 6:30 at St. John’s Café and any
one interested in working with this ministry is invited to
If you would like to volunteer or if you know someone in need of help from this ministry please contact John Mize at
