Pastoral Care Team (PCT) is an extension of the pastor’s arm in the area of congregational care. This is a ministry team of eight laymen from our congregation gifted in compassion, helps, mercy, prayer, faith and hospitality. For individuals going through times of crisis, we are available to spend time with you, offer practical help and assistance, pray with you and encourage you with God’s Word. We visit those who are hospitalized or in nursing homes and families who have experienced the death of a loved one.
A vital part of our overall effectiveness in caring for others involves the Home Group ministry. We encourage and seek to train Home Group leaders in practical ways to care for the people in their groups. For many, the relationships built within the Home Group setting serves as the first and often most significant support for them in times of crisis. Because of this benefit to so many, our PCT is an advocate for your involvement in a Home Group.
PCT also enjoys working with a number of volunteers from our congregation who have made themselves available when needed to help transport church people to medical appointments, provide temporary emergency housing and child care, set up and help serve funeral meals, assist with simple car and home repairs, assist with light housekeeping, provide food for funerals / those recovering from surgery or illness, and visiting shut-ins / nursing home residents.
From time to time, we update these volunteer lists in order to continue caring for one another when needs arise. Please take a moment and consider how you might be able to help us on occasion. Just click on the Sign Up button below. On behalf of the Pastoral Care Team, thank you!
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort,
who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction,
with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.
– 2 Corinthians 1:3-4
