Seeking Pastoral Care

If you (or others you know in our community) are going through a difficult time, contact us. Here are some options:

Contact the Congregational Care office.
Call or email Lance Hurst, who will direct your request to the person who can help you. If you would like to be added to the prayer list that appears in the Sunday bulletin, Lance can handle that, too. The Deacons Prayer Group and the Women’s Association Prayer Group dedicate time to private prayer for the individuals on the church prayer list, as well as others who request prayer.

Request help from our staff and volunteers.
The Rev. Helen Jackson, Fifth Avenue’s parish visitor, visits and brings communion to elderly and homebound members. The Deacons also maintain a robust ministry on behalf of our members who are elderly, homebound or in fragile health. And Circle of Caregiving volunteers are available to accompany you to medical appointments and help in other ways. Contact Lance Hurst to get in touch with any of these resources.

Submit a prayer request.
Prayer request cards are available in the pews and outside the Sanctuary and Kirkland Chapel. Any of the ushers can also provide them. You can also submit a prayer request online. All requests are kept confidential. You may even submit your request anonymously.
