How the Pastoral Care Team Started
My children, our love should not be just words and talk; it must be true love, which shows itself in action. (1 John 3:18)
Recognizing that our Parish Vision Statement, says that we will "nurture and support each other," we decided one way to care for one another was to form a Pastoral Care Team in 2019.
The purpose of this team, in coordination with the Rector, is to keep in touch with those who are sick, recuperating from surgery, shut in, or alone.
The congregation is encouraged to get involved by contact either member of our Pastoral Care Team: Janis Richard (328-8225), Lynne Slipp (328-9446), or Jon & Ann Tait (328-2384) and let them know if you notice that someone who usually sits near you in church has not attended for a couple of Sundays or if you hear of anyone who is sick or in hospital.
They will make a friendly phone-call to let individuals know that they have been missed, that we care about them, and ask if there is something, we can do for them. Are you willing to support this ministry so that we can truly live out our vision?
