The Pastoral Care Team….
…is here for you through your cycles of life.
The Pastoral Care Team acts as the extended family that gives supportive pastoral care to members of Faith Church. “Come to me, all you that are wary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28
Faith Church has an active Stephen Ministry program which is a one-to-one lay caring ministry. Stephen Ministry congregations equip and empower lay caregivers—called Stephen Ministers—to provide high-quality, confidential, Christ-centered care to people who are hurting.
