The heart of the Christian message is that God cares about everyone of us. What makes this real in our world is when people care for each other in God’s name. As God loves us so we are called to love and care for each other. Jesus said you cannot say you love God and hate your neighbor. The inverse is also true, when you truly love God you will discover ways to love and care for your neighbor
Preaching the Gospel is about more than words. It is about making a plan to demonstrate that love and caring are real with actions of love and concern. So the Pastoral care of the church is organized in ways to help members and friends of the church care for each other and to engage in acts of kindness in our community.
We have trained persons in addition to the pastor who organize and carry out this love and caring as it is needed. Our acts of kindness are designed to be organized and helpful and not always random. If you need the services of Pastor or Deacons please contact the church to let us know how we can help.
Our Pastor and those who work with the pastor are on call for many different kinds of works of caring. Pastor makes home and hospital visits when invited. You can expect that he will pray with you and talk with you.
