The pastoral care ministry is extended through the work of the Board of Deacons. They focus on deepening our caring ministry in Six Key ways:

  • Greeting: Welcoming all who come into our church to attend Sunday services, particularly those who are first-time visitors
  • Transportation: Providing rides to church services for members and friends who are not able to drive
  • Visitation: Our Care Team pairs members/friends who are ill, facing challenging circumstances or no longer able to attend church services with regular visits from loving members of our Care Team.
  • Receptions: Providing receptions for fellowship after Sunday services and for special events
  • Meals: Organizing church dinners and short-term meals for those recovering from illness or surgery
  • New Members: Assist the Pastor in welcoming and integrating new members into our church community.
