Hello Tabernacle Family!
I’m grateful to be able to share with you about the ministry that I am honored to be a part of…Pastoral Care! I am happy to be a part of your lives in a very special way and to share in your stories. To be able to support and care for people in times of sadness, loss, and fear, as well as in times of happiness, achievements, and successes is such a privilege. I am thankful for the opportunity to be a part of what God is doing in you at all stages and seasons, to cry with you, laugh with you, and pray things through together.
Romans 12:4-5 (NIV). “For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.”
We have a wonderful Pastoral Care team who go above and beyond to make people feel that they are special and that they are a part of our community. The Pastoral Care team ministers to our church family in many ways; by making visits in hospitals, nursing/rehab centers, and homes, by sending cards to members who can no longer attend services, and by making calls throughout the week to connect with people. Pastoral Care also attends to the needs of people interested in being water baptized, having their children dedicated, and we are there for them when they have to walk through a loved one’s funeral, or the excitement of a wedding. This church could not have the impact that it does without the help of the Pastoral Care Team.
If you think you would like to be a part of this ministry, if you have a heart for people and would like to serve them, please call or come by and see me or Pastor Jo Ann. We would love to hear your story, too!
