Working closely with the minister, the Pastoral Care Team provides assistance for fellowship members and friends who are dealing with a difficult situation in their lives. Team members make visits to homes, hospitals, and nursing homes and provide non-judgmental listening and support.
Practical help, such as providing rides, shopping and meals, are coordinated with other members of the fellowship. For this purpose, we keep and update a volunteer list. We facilitate Birthday Sunday celebrations on the first Sunday of the month, keep notes of joys and sorrows, assist with memorial receptions and provide a plaque for the memorial tree if requested.
We cannot provide counseling or long-term interventions. However, the team does maintain a list of area resources and can refer you to appropriate service providers.
Rev. Eric Severson, Mary Johnson and Gisela Bailey (Co- chairs), Linda Rector, Beth Sperry, Amy Rogers, Robert Malecki, Donna King and Judith Hill. The Pastoral Care team is always welcoming new members. Please contact them if you are interested or need any help.
