THE HELPING TREE

Matching people who need support with those who can give it

As a result of our survey and congregation discussions, Parkview has started a new initiative called “The Helping Tree”. It is a fresh, new way to provide care and support within the Parkview community. The purpose of this initiative is to create a way to match congregation members who want help or support with fellow congregation members who are willing and able to provide assistance.

Some examples might be:

  • Running errands/shopping
  • Transportation to and from in-town or out-of-town appointments, medical treatments, etc.
  • Help with yard work such as raking leaves or shovelling snow
  • Help with light housework or home maintenance
  • Having someone to talk to, visit with, pray
  • Provision of a good, homecooked meal after surgery, illness, etc.

 

Anything you seek or need assistance with.

 

How it Works

 

If you want support/assistance:

  • Check “The Helping Tree” in the Narthex or call the church office to see if anyone has indicated a willingness to provide what you are in need of. If no one has already posted willingness to provide that assistance, then:
  • Complete a request form outlining the type of assistance required and when. Provide contact information. (You may choose to indicate whether or not you would be willing to pay for such assistance.) Place the request form on “The Helping Tree”.
  • Call the church office or church member and request a form be posted on your behalf.

 

If you are able to provide assistance:

  1. Check “The Helping Tree” to see if anyone is in need of assistance and contact that person.
  2. Complete a form outlining the type/s of assistance you are able to provide with dates, if applicable. Provide contact information. (You may choose to indicate whether or not you wish to be paid for your service.) Place the form on “The Helping Tree”.

Philippians 2:4 “Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.”
