The Inreach/Outreach volunteers follow up their visits with telephone calls and gift cards are sent to members who have been in the hospital for 2 days or more.

Jail Outreach Ministry:

The purpose of the Jail Ministry is to teach the word of God to men and women who are incarcerated. The West Harpeth Primitive Baptist Church Jail Ministry is certified through the Community Out-Reach Program. This ministry currently consists of four certified teachers and ministers at the John I. Easley Criminal Justice Center in Franklin, TN. The ministry is open to those that have a passion to minister the gospel and willing to become certified counselors. The Women’s Jail Ministry meets once a week. Currently the Men’s Jail Ministry position is vacant. Bibles are donated by the community and are available to prisoners upon request.

Visitation (Sick & Shut-in) Ministry

The Visitation Ministry Team assists the pastor in providing pastoral care by scheduling prayer and family visits to hospitals, rehabilitation facilities, and homes. This ministry team also visits local nursing homes. Members are encouraged to notify the church office or a member of the Inreach/Outreach Ministry Team when a member, friend, or family is hospitalized or seriously ill.
