Caring for Each Other
Deacons: Our deacons provide pastoral care for our church community and visit members who are sick or unable to come to worship. They are able to coordinate meals, transportation, and other assistance for members in need. Chosen for their compassion and service, our deacons undertake the sacramental task of preparing the Lord’s Supper for worship and bringing communion to members who cannot attend (“extending the table”).
Parish Nurse: Through an innovative partnership with Lakeview Hospital, FPC employs a licensed (RN) parish nurse to assist members in integrating physical and spiritual healing. Serving as a resource to both the Pastor and the Deacons, our Parish Nurse offers bi-monthly blood pressure checks (1st and 3rd Sunday) and consultation on a full range of health concerns.
Care Groups: Our Deacons are broken up into five care groups to better serve church members.
Prayer List: The Presbyterian Women maintain an active prayer ministry. To have a prayer added to the prayer list, please call Betty Roemich or Jane Boss.
Prayer Shawls: Volunteers knit prayer shawls that are given by Deacons or the Parish Nurse to members in need of healing or comfort.
Peace Garden: On the northeast corner of our church campus, we have a Peace Garden and Labyrinth.
