HOW CAN WE CARE FOR YOU?

PASTORAL & CONGREGATIONAL CARE

We seek to bring Christ’s love to:

  • the homebound who are feeling disconnected from their church

  • those with illness or pain, in treatment or recovering, or with long-term troubles

  • those who are feeling depressed or alone

  • weary care-givers

  • any who are grieving loved-ones

If you are expecting or adopting a child, please contact us so that we can inform you about all of the ways the Baby Ministry supports families with new additions. A team delivers meals, installs an announcement sign and more.

Prayer Chain

Prayer shawls are made by the Persian Pickles (SMPC’s knitting and quilting group) which meets on Tuesday mornings at 10am.  They are then distributed to members as needed in times of illness or crisis.  If you know of a fellow church member who could benefit from a prayer shawl please let us know. Also, let us know if you have interest in joining the Persian Pickles.
