Pastoral Care Ministries

"Are any among you suffering? They should pray.  Are any cheerful? They should sing songs of praise.  Are any among you sick? They should call for the elders of the church and have them pray over them, anointing them with oil in the name of the Lord." James 5:13-14

As a community of faith, we are called to be the presence of Christ to one another in times of trouble, grief, and illness.  Compassion is all that one needs to help another in their suffering.
