Pastoral Care

The members of Grace describe themselves as a church family. That is often seen most clearly in our pastoral care ministry which provides a special way to love and support members of our congregation. Here are a few ways to serve:

Prayer Shawl Ministry – Members who like to knit create prayer shawls which are blessed for those in need.

Lay Eucharistic Visitor – These individuals are trained and approved to administer consecrated elements of the Eucharist to house bound members of our church and community.

Caregivers/Parish Visitors – Caregivers visit and bring meals to those in need at their homes. 

Holy CasserolesA casserole crew of ECW Women make freezer-friendly meals for our members in need. Thanks to Jo Smith and her daughter for this great idea. It is a fun way to help others while having a great time with friends! Please see Jo or send her an email hjs2760@comcast.net if you are interested in helping out or if you have a recipe to share.
