Pastoral Care

Life is hard sometimes. We all experience sickness, job loss, broken hearts and broken bodies. We want to support you through those difficult times. First Church Members may volunteer as Pastoral Care Providers or Associates.

Pastoral Care Providers 

These volunteers give rides or meals to other members in need. To request assistance or volunteer:


Pastoral Care Provider Coordinator


Pastoral Care Associates

These carefully trained members lend an ear to someone who needs to talk. Good listening and a quiet presence is sometimes all that is needed to help during difficult life transitions such as surgery, chronic illness, divorce, terminal illness, death, difficult decisions, problems at work or home, the arrival of a new family member, graduation or a new career.

Are you a warm, caring and accepting person? Consider becoming a Pastoral Care Associate. Learn more.
