Congregational Care

Submit A Prayer Online

The apostle Paul described the church as the body of Christ, saying "when one member suffers, all suffer; when one member rejoices, all rejoice." Westminster lives this out as we care for one another – showing compassion and concern for those undergoing crises such as illness, grief, job loss, or divorce, and sharing joyful events such as weddings, births, baptisms, and anniversaries.

How is congregational care lived out?

  • When pastors visit those who are hospitalized and/or confined to health facilities, and meet with members who are in need.

  • When deacons take flowers or the Lord's Supper to those who are homebound, and assist with transportation to church.

  • When a Stephen Minister listens confidentially to someone undergoing a life crisis, or prays with any person sharing a concern following worship.

  • When we announce the births of children or grandchildren born in our church family, or the deaths of members and their loves ones.

  • When Caring Friends and other members visit or send cards to those who are homebound.

  • When the Covenant Prayer Group prays weekly for our members or anyone we know in need – our church family, our community, and the world.
