Pastoral Care

Take a few minutes every day to call someone to see how they are doing – to reach out and say a prayer with them and/or find out if they need anything.

If there are those who need help, please let us know and we will figure out how to assist; if you are that person, please reach out to Deacon Janet or Pat Trumbull. As Jesus said: Love one another.
