Pastoral Care Team Training
Did you know we have a team of congregation members who gather once a month to pray for you, care for you, discern ways to walk alongside you? Our Pastoral Care team came into being at the onset of the pandemic. This faithful group makes phone calls, delivers meals, and prays for our church family and community.
Join us on July 21 for a Pastoral Care Team training. We will learn and practice best practices for how we care for one another as the Body of Christ. All are welcome to participate in this training.
