Pastoral Care

Supporting and Caring for Each Other

Caring Ministry members serve as spiritual companions to parishioners who can’t get to church or who are going through a difficult time. If you know someone who would like a visit from a Lay Caring Minister to visit them, contact the Reverend Eric Long at

Gathering Meal Groups (GMGs) prepare the meals that follow the Sunday Gathering (during the school year). Cooking together is a great way to make new friends! 

Intercessory Prayer Group members intercede for those in need of prayer. They hold into the light of God a list of people who have requested prayer or for whom prayer has been requested. Contact the Reverend Eric Long at
