COMMUNION & HOSPITAL CALLS If you or anyone you know is homebound or hospitalized, even temporarily, please call the church office at (828)859-9574. This way we can arrange for them to be visited by one of our Extraordinary Ministers. Often people in the hospital are missed because they enter as an emergency and we don't always get their name. With your help we can make certain everyone is taken care of.
