Cares

final-05-01

We are organized to meet the pastoral care needs of our congregation. Rev. Diane Amidon, Director of Caring and Senior Adult Ministries, coordinates and oversees our programs. Rev. Roger Elliott, Pastor Emeritus, is our lead visitor for people who live in care facilities and retirement homes.

The ministers are supported and surrounded by 22 Congregational Care Ministers (CCMs) each trained to visit when you are in the hospital, homebound or grieving the loss of a loved one. Some of our Congregational Care Ministers also serve in providing hospitality at weddings and funerals.

We offer classes in a variety of subjects, such as grief, depression, or anxiety, taught by trained professionals. Classes are offered twice a year for 6 to 8 weeks. Other informational programs, such as holiday planning for those grieving, are offered on a rotating basis. Twice monthly, an ongoing support group for caregivers meets. We also offer a monthly meeting for those connected to the LGBT community.

For questions, contact Diane Amidon, Director of Caring and Senior Ministries.
