Caring Ministries

Caring for our members, caring for our neighbors, caring for our world.

  • Prayer shawl ministry

    Prayer Shawl Ministry members meet monthly to create prayer shawls, newborn blankets, knitted caps and bookmarks to share with a word of encouragement for those who are grieving a a, welcoming new life, or experiencing a life transition. All are welcome to join - lessons provided, free of charge! For more information, please contact Rev. Joy Dister-Dominguez.

  • Stephen Ministers

    Stephen Ministers are caring lay members who engage in a one-on-one relationship with care receivers who benefit from having time with someone who will listen. Those experiencing grief, loss of job, new baby, or other stresses in life (members of our church or community) are encouraged to request a Stephen Minister. If you are interested in learning how to become a Stephen Minister, or receiving care, please contact Betty Nethery.

  • Jo's Love

    Members of Jo's Love gather to pray for those facing breast cancer surgery while they stuff special pillows, designed to help during mastectomy recovery. Members of AHUMC, Zeta Amicae Auxiliary of ZPB Sorority and Greater Fort Worth Area Negro Business & Professional Women join together in this effort, which has benefited thousands of women with a gift of Jo's Love. For more information, contact Betty Nethery

  • Stage: Hope

    Stage: Hope is a cancer support group that provides comfort and reassurance to newly diagnosed members and friends of AHUMC and provides continued encouragement for those in treatment and post-treatment.  We emphasize the power of God in the cancer journey and include scripture and prayer as the foundation of shared love and support. For information, contact Betty Nethery.

  • Support Groups

    AHUMC hosts two Women's Groups (Wednesday at 6 p.m; Saturday at 10 a.m.). We also host an Al-Anon group on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at noon. Groups meet in the Library. Come in the west door (under the awning) and take a right at the first hallway. Bathrooms are on your left, and the library is right in front of you.

  • S.A.M. (Senior Adult Members)

    AHUMC cares for our Senior Adult Members in a variety of ways: cards at the holidays, special gifts at Christmas, Home-centered Communion, hospital visits, and one-on-one caring friends are some of the ways we minister to adults who are no longer able to attend church on Sundays. If you would like to volunteer with Senior Adult Ministry, please contact Rev. Joy Dister-Dominguez.
