Please Help! Your Gift is Very Critical to Provide Care and Love to the Confined and Convalescent in Many Care Centers that Would Be Lonely and Forgotten.

AVOWED - One Worship Team

Let us labor for that which will last - love - A love which is concerned for others rather than self:

  • Giving Away Faith, Hope and Love:  Yes, “giving away” in that we are not just “sharing” or “explaining”, but investing our lives and have joy to burn the lamp of our lives out for God as we love the lonely and forgotten of our society.  Starting with the Pitzer family and building from there, we are using every effort to expend our energy in the form of our intellect, emotions, spirit and body in devotion to God.  Encouraging the faintheartedProclaiming peaceBringing glad tidingsProclaiming salvationSinging together in spiritual waste placesComforting God’s people.
  • 2013 Monthly Programs:  Finishing the year with 33 scheduled program visits to care centers in the month of December alone.  In addition to an exponentially increasing impromptu visits on a one-to-one basis.
  • 2013 Volunteers: 74 unique volunteers, spanning at least six area church congregations (additional small children not counted).
  • Monthly averages for 2013 on giving to care center residents:  90 Gospel Tracts a month;  about 4 Bibles a month;  7 stuffed animals to the memory impaired a month;  $80 in food snacks a month;  60 bottled drinks a month;  attrition rate of about 37 song books a month to be reprinted for those that desire the spiritual and emotional tactile need to be blessed by keeping them;  about 24 (plus) miscellaneous crafts – plaques – bookmarks – wall posters with Scripture – CD’s to the blind – magazines – cards – flowers – plants – devotional material and other items each month.

Actively Visiting Orphans, Widows, Elderly and Disabled

"This is pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father, to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world." (James 1:27, NASB)

What Does AVOWED Do?

Commonly known as the "Nursing Home Ministry".  However, we are much more than that. We are also:

Church Planter:  as we establish regular worship services in care centers and provide many forms of spiritual care;

Street Evangelist:  as we explain the Gospel to the unreached among the corridors, halls, rooms, and outside courtyards of care centers;

Hospice Chaplain:  as we hold hands of the dying, as we sing songs, read Scripture, pray and tell them they are loved.  Listen and comfort widows, the grieving and lend a shoulder to weep on;

Encourage, Equip and Facilitate others to engage in similar compassionate activity.

Our mission: To actively visit the lonely and forgotten, ministering to their emotional and spiritual needs, and to encourage, equip and facilitate others to engage in this compassionate activity.
