Those precious members who are "shut in" or homebound and not able to attend services are often the forgotten members of the church. The elderly or ill, confined to their homes or to a nursing home or hospital bed, would love to attend church to experience God, visit with long-time friends and see their pastor. HomeTouch® is no substitute for any of those experiences, but it does fill a tremendous void.
Let us introduce you to HomeTouch, a weekly inspirational letter that helps your senior or other homebound members feel remembered and appreciated. HomeTouch reminds them of your concern for their emotional and spiritual well-being.
Each week, you can send or deliver your senior members or homebound members a personal package from your church. It will contain two pages printed in LARGE type for easy reading, reminding them of how much they are remembered and loved.
The devotional page includes a thought for the week, a prayer and a short, inspirational message. It also includes room for a personal message or signature.
The activity page, important because your shut-ins have so much time on their hands, is chock-full of things to do during those long hours of the day. Each activity is based on the Bible or church life.
HomeTouch helps fill those long, quiet times of the day in a meaningful way.
HomeTouch is completely reproducible. We send you the masters for every week, and you make as many copies as you need. Click here to view, download and print a FREE sample.
Caring for a loved one can put pressure and strain on even the most resilient person. If you've ever been a caregiver or have known one, you understand how straining it is physically, emotionally and spiritually. Caregivers often put their own health and spiritual well-being aside to take care of the one they love.
HomeTouch can also be great for the caregiver - especially the elderly spouse or family member - who feels guilty about leaving or are unable to leave the side of their loved one. HomeTouch provides activities and devotions that help to foster engagement and communication with loved ones at home or during hospital or nursing home visits. It will help spiritually revive caregivers and keep their minds focused on the Good News of the Bible.
And here's something more. With HomeTouch you also receive a quarterly newsletter for the pastor. Each issue provides ideas to keep your senior members connected with church life and includes material about the homebound or seniors that you can use in your church newsletter.
Memberships begin at $4.95/month for electronic access or $12.95/quarter plus shipping for paper delivery - regardless of how many copies of HomeTouch you make and distribute.
And if for any reason it doesn't meet your needs or expectations, simply mark "cancel" on the statement and return it - no questions asked.
