Pastoral care is a ministry that is offered by the pastor, but there are several others who provide pastoral care to the members of this congregation.
There is a visitation team of lay members called Shepherd's Visitors who meet with the pastor once a month to share updates regarding members who are not able to attend worship on Sunday mornings. This team works with the pastor to make sure that everyone is visited frequently and provided communion at home.
The pastor enjoys making the time to visit with members and prospective members simply to grow in relationship with them. Yet, sometimes these visits are due to a celebration (e.g., the birth of a child, the blessing of a new home). Of course, the pastor will make visits when someone is in the hospital, preparing for surgery, or dealing with the loss of a loved one. Please contact the pastor or the church office if you are in need of a pastoral visit.
The pastor is willing to have conversations with members who are weighed down by a burden. This burden can be a sin that troubles them, a relationship that is torn, a path for the future that is unclear, or another concern. These conversations remain confidential. If you have need for one of these conversations, please contact the pastor to schedule a time.
