At Grace we try to be an authentic Christian community by being intentional about providing care to each other. There are particular times in our lives when we may need more pastoral care than at other times. We want to support people who are in hospital, may be receiving treatment, or are ill at home. We provide pastoral care for those who are grieving a loss, as well as for those who have experienced a significant change in their life. We also try to be present to celebrate special events in the lives of our church family at every age and stage.
Our ministers, as well as elders, are the primary providers of pastoral care. There is regular visitation by elders and the ministers, as well as by trained lay people. We also provide programs for seniors, ongoing training for elders, a prayer ministry, quilts as an expression of our care, and other programs to support of our ongoing pastoral care of each other.
