Congregational Care

“When they had finished breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, ‘Simon son of John, do you love me more than these?’ He said to him, ‘Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.’ Jesus said to him, ‘Feed my lambs.’ ” John 21:15

Pastoral care at First Presbyterian Church is an essential aspect of the ministry offered to our church members and to members of our community, as we seek to share God’s love and compassion. We care for hurting people in times of illness, grief and other challenging chapters of life. Pastoral staff and church members provide care through visiting the sick, maintaining regular contact with the elderly, being a friend to the troubled, marking life’s passages, comforting the grieved, coordinating support in various life transitions, and establishing contact with friends we haven't seen in a while.
