Pastoral Care

From birth to death our lives are full of many joys, many sorrows. Whether you are seeking support in time of celebration or transition, the Pastoral Care Circle of Grace Church is here to journey alongside you.

Consisting of both laity and clergy, the Pastoral Care Circle of Grace is here to serve as a resource for a variety of life's happenings. When you contact us we will talk together to determine the best plan of care--whether that be lifting up your name in the Prayers of the People, sending out a request to our Holy Casserolers team to provide you with a meal after surgery, connecting you with someone going through the same issues for a cup of coffee, or assisting in scheduling a one-to-one time with a member of the clergy.

Examples of life moments the Pastoral Care Circle can assist with:

  • Celebrating a birth/adoption, baptism, graduation, wedding, retirement, anniversary, or birthday
  • Prayers during a pregnancy, job hunt, or final exams
  • Support while caring for a child, spouse, or parent with long-term physical or mental health issues
  • Grieving the death of a family member, friend, or pet
  • Transitioning after the end of a relationship, move, or major life change
  • Struggling with short-term or long-term health issues
  • Preparing for or healing from surgery
  • Facing end-of-life decisions
  • Please don't hesitate to contact Deacon Carol Smith by e-mail or phone if you are in need of prayer or pastoral care.
