Pastoral Care

As ministers of care, we hope to participate in living and sharing the “Good News” of Jesus, especially among the sick, shut-in, and bereaved. We remember the words of Jesus “Do this in remembrance of me.”

Be a part of a ministry team that
  • sends greeting cards to the sick and shut-ins;
  • takes the Eucharist to the sick and shut-ins;
  • visits shut-ins in homes and nursing homes;
  • organizes luncheons at times of funerals;
  • provides food for funeral luncheons;
  • provides transportation for medical appointments

To get involved, please call Pastoral Associate, Tom Eggleston at (616)399-1062 or email him at
