As Christians, we are called to care for those in need. We are also invited to experience the love of Christ through the care of others.
Everyone experiences loss, hardship or loneliness at some point in life. Together, we can experience God’s presence in the midst of difficult times.
A Few ministries that offer Congregational Care Are:
The Prayer Chain connects individual needs through a network of faithful folks lifting concerns to God. We pray in thanksgiving for the blessings we receive. We ask for God’s healing presence in the midst of illness. We seek peace for that which we do not understand. Prayer requests are shared with the prayer team via email and added to the intercessory prayers for worship.
To add items to the prayer chain, contact the Church Office.
Stephen Ministry connects trained lay caregivers with individuals in need. Stephen Ministers have participated in 50 hours of training which equips them to accompany others in times of life transition, illness, grieving and much more. A Stephen Minister is not a therapist, but someone who listens, discusses spiritual matters and prays with their care receiver. This care is confidential. Stephen Ministers typically meet with care receivers once a week for an hour.
If you would like to participate in Stephen Ministry, contact the Church Office.
Monthly Healing Service
We are convinced that it is GOD’s will for everybody to be restored to health and wholeness in spirit soul, and body. We understand that this is often a process, but it can also happen instantaneously.
For those who desire prayer for healing or who wish to experience GOD’s tender touch we offer a healing service on the first Sunday of the month at 6:00 pm in our sanctuary.
