Nurture and Care

We are persons trained to provide one-on-one caring support to those going through a stressful time or joy in their life. Do you enjoy helping others both in and outside our church membership, working with those in need? Whatever you choose, your service will be appreciated and remembered by those you serve.

Bereavement Committee


The Bereavement Ministry brings comfort and support to the grieving families who have lost a loved one through First UMC Mabank. The members of this ministry personally reach out to grieving families for details as to the time and date of service (if at the church) and to coordinate a reception or meal arrangements after a funeral or memorial.

Caregivers Support Group


Comfort Cross


Comfort Crosses are exclusively handmade by the Comfort Cross Team and available upon request for those that may need comfort during a recent loss, experiencing medical concerns, or need spiritual guidance. Each cross comes in a hand sewn cloth bag and prayer card is included inside for the recipient.

Prayer Blanket Ministry


Prayer Blankets are provided for anyone in need when requested by a First UMC Mabank member. The blankets are made, placed in the sanctuary for members to pray over and tie a knot (signifying their prayer), and then presented to the person who is in current need of prayers and comfort while hospitalized, ill, who has suffered a loss, enlisted in armed services, etc.
