Our pastors are available to visit members in the hospital or at home. If you are planning to have surgery or are hospitalized unexpectedly, please let our church office know the name of the medical facility where you are receiving care.
The Pastoral Staff is available to meet with families grieving the loss of a loved one, and to help with funeral or memorial services. Please contact our church office for more information.
We currently offer prayer support in two ways. Members can have their prayer requests printed in the weekly Prayer List circulated to our members, or members can provide the Associate Pastor with details to be shared privately with staff members who routinely pray for our members during their Tuesday morning staff meetings. Contact Rev. Greg Buell with your prayer needs.
