Care & Support


Pastoral care at First Presbyterian Church is an essential part of ministry to our church members and to members of our community, as we seek to share God’s love and compassion.

We care for others in times of illness, bereavement and other challenging times. Pastoral staff and church members provide care through visiting the ill, maintaining contact with the elderly on a regular basis, being a friend to the troubled, comforting the grieving and coordinating helping support in various life transitions.

Equipping church members for an intentional caring ministry is another part of pastoral care. This takes place through our Stephen Ministry and Home Partners  Programs. Stephen Ministers are trained to enter into caring and confidential relationships with those going through difficult times. Home Partners provide regular visits to persons unable to attend church because of health concerns.

Support groups assist people struggling with various challenges of life, such as grief and divorce.

Crisis intervention, counseling and referral to other sources of assistance are available through the pastoral staff.
