Midland Evangelical

Free Church


The Care ministry not only serves as the 'hands,' 'eyes,' and 'ears' of Jesus to the church body and community, but also equips gifted people to serve - to lead and care for one another.


At times we need help in a physical form. We help members and regular attendees with needs. This help may involve finances, financial counseling, home and car repair, and many other areas.

Care Ministry

In the Hospital?

If you go to the hospital we
want to be able to minister
with you but we need to
know you are there.

Please be aware that hospitals are not allowed to communicate with the church that you are there because of privacy laws unless you ask them to tell us. We want to visit people in the hospital to encourage and pray but we need to know. Here are a few suggestions:

  • Call the church office at 989.631.4411.
  • Call your Life Group leader, they will know how to contact the pastoral staff.
  • In an emergency ask for a hospital chaplain to notify the church.
  • With a routine check-in please tell them you are from Midland Evangelical Free Church.

Stephen Ministry

Are you going through a difficult time? Do you need encouragement and support? Trained lay ministers from our church are here for you!

Please send an email to stephen@mefchurch.org.

A Stephen Minister will provide man-to-man or woman-to-woman care for those who are experiencing life's normal spiritual or emotional difficulties such as grief and loss, illness, marriage challenges, job situations, unexpected pregnancies, life transitions, and many other challenges.

These compassionate people are supportive, encouraging and are very beneficial for anyone -- inside or outside our church.

You are not meant to walk alone as you deal during painful times and we are here to walk beside you.


Do you have a working vehicle in good condition that you no longer need or use? Please consider donating it for others in need who can't afford to purchase one.

Questions? Need more information? Please contact Pastor Gib Giblin at 989.631.4411 x1016.


We are looking for more people to join our
Care Team. If you are a compassionate person who would enjoy working behind the scenes to care for individuals within our church family, then this opportunity might be for you!

Care Team members dedicate their time to lovingly visit those who are in the hospital, unable to leave the house, face difficult times,
or are experiencing a host of other challenging situations.

If you would like to become a Care Team member, please contact JoAnn Smith via email.

Questions? Call Pastor Gib Giblin at 989.631.4411 x1016.
