Care Ministry

Parish Care Ministries

Praise the LORD, O my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name. Praise the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits – who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. (Psalm 103:1-5 NIV)

We all experience challenges in life – times when we could benefit from caring Christian support. Our Parish Care Ministries are available to provide spiritual and emotional care for you and your family as you journey through times of trial and crisis in your lives. Care Ministries is committed to expressing Christian care and love to all people in our congregation, especially those who are hurting in mind, body, spirit or relationally, and to nurture a faithful understanding of Christian wholeness by linking faith to all aspects of life and health.

One of the ways we serve people in our community is by simply being present when there is a need. Parish Care Ministries supports Thanksgiving’s commitment to provide a place for the hurting, the hopeless, the discouraged, the depressed, the frustrated and confused who need to find love, acceptance, guidance and encouragement.
