A unique ministry of pastoral care at First Presbyterian is its network of Care Teams.
The purpose of the ministry is to equip people to help people. The goal of the Care Teams is to provide "intentional, sustained caring for persons who are disabled, disadvantaged, or isolated by disease, age and other conditions. The purpose of the Care Teams is that the care is shared by a group of members so that they only visit the person once a month, or more often if you are able. Some of the needs provided by Care Teams are social, practical (transportation or meals), and spiritual. The Team is a bridge between those who need care and persons who wish to share their gifts and talents doing what they love, when they can, within a proven framework that contains flexibility but also necessary boundaries." (Carolina Care Team Ministry manual, p.1) As Christians we desire to care and show compassion to those in need, all to the Glory of God.
If you would be interested in participating in a class for care team training in preparation to serve on a Care Team please contact our Pastoral Care Administrative Assistant (contact information below).
