Congregational Care - Ministry

The Congregational Care Ministry at First Presbyterian Church includes purposeful visitation through pastors, elders, deacons, and the Pastoral Care Support Group. More important than these programs, however, is the hope that all church members and friends realize how the congregational care staff is available to them for any need that arises.

The death of a family member or loved one can be a difficult and traumatic time. In order to help with details associated with a funeral, the Pastoral Care Committee of the church has prepared a brochure of what to consider in thinking through plans for the funeral and how the church can help.
