Pastoral Care

After-Worship Coffee Fellowship

A student at Grace noted “You really like one another” after observing that our Coffee Fellowship after church is not a 15-minute experience. People stay after the Service for the opportunity to have some refreshments and visit with one another. Members of the congregation provide informal pastoral care to each other as we check in how life has been and offer a listening ear and support.

You can help support this ministry by volunteering to help with Coffee Fellowship. The Pastoral Care / Outreach Committee is looking for additional volunteers to help with serving refreshments. This would involving setting up the “refreshment table” before Church and preparing coffee and tea for after the Sunday morning service. We have easy-to-handle coffee-making equipment and volunteers would also have assistance the first time they took on this responsibility. It is a good way to get to know other members of our congregation, and simple to do. Whether single, or in twos, or in a family, we would welcome your help. Please contact our office to let the "Coffee Fellowship" Co-ordinator know if you are interested.

Pastoral Care Team

We have a pastoral care team that visits members of the congregation who may not be able to participate in life as fully as they use to. The pastoral care teams consist of two persons who agree to visit a few shut-ins a month. The entire team meets occasionally to check in and learn more about pastoral visiting. If you are interested in finding out more about this ministry or would like to be on the roster for a pastoral care team visit contact Rev.  Stephen Fram.

Visitations

In order to be more responsive to your pastoral concerns, our minister sets time aside one day a week to do extra visiting. If you would like to schedule a visit please contact our church office. Although our Minister visits hospitals weekly, because of privacy policies he may not know that you are in the hospital. If you would like a hospital visit, please let the our church office know.

A member of our congregation sends sympathy cards, get-well cards, birthday cards for the 90 and older members, etc. when they are aware.
