Spiritual Care Ministry involves sharing God's love and grace with those in various difficult situations in life and offering support and encouragement through God's word and prayer. This takes place through our Visitation Ministry, through specialized materials to support those dealing with cancer, and through support groups for those who are grieving the loss of a loved one and for those who are separated or divorced. There are many opportunities to become involved in Spiritual Care Ministry, either by serving in these ministries or receiving care yourself.
