In coordination with our Minister, and with compassion and discretion, we offer a Caring Circle of support, comfort and practical assistance to those in our church community in times of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual needs.
Our goal is to express our connection and spiritual commitment to each other and strengthen the bonds of our beloved community.
We encourage and foster a sense of belonging and interdependence in serving others and inspire caring interactions to companion each other through times of illness, medical emergency, birth, bereavement or other challenging circumstances and life changes.
Care and support options:
For those in need and those who wish to help, we offer services through our Caring Community, Pastoral Support team (including our minister), and maintain a resource list of Support Groups.
What services are available?
- Practical support services are available through the volunteers in our Caring Community. We have opportunities to give AND receive services.
- Pastoral Support from our Minister or a trained Lay Leader is available for those who need a caring and committed listener.
- Peer-to-peer support on wide range of topics is available from groups within North Parish and outside resources.
