The Minister of Community Care schedules, plans, and leads regular Healing and Anointing Services for interested members of the congregation. These services are typically held immediately after the Sunday worship services, twice per month (in both the chapel and the sanctuary.) Notification that these special services will occur is made through the Communiqué, the church email, and during worship announcement times.
A grief group entitled “The Caring and Sharing Grief Support Group” meets weekly at Community Church to provide a safe and supportive atmosphere in which those who mourn a recent loss of a loved one may gather. This group is lay lead, but receives oversight and periodic training and review by the Pastoral Care Minister.
When a death occurs in the congregation, the Pastoral Care Coordinator notifies the family members of this group and extends an invitation for them to attend a meeting.
Resources, various booklets, Care notes, and other printed materials, as well as several token gifts, are available from the Pastoral Care Coordinator for distribution to those who may benefit from these items.
