Pastoral Care

 pastoral-care

Pastoral Care is the work of our whole Church community and is a ministry to those who may be ill, in the hospital, shut in, grieving a death, experiencing parenthood for the first time, or in crisis.

Care Team

Professionally trained lay ministers who provide confidential, safe, and comforting care to parishioners in times of crises or transition. They also visit those who are ill and take communion to those who are unable to attend church. Contact Cheryl Williams for more information, to request a visit, or to sign up.

Knitting Group
We welcome you to join us every first and third Thursday (9:30 a.m.) as we fellowship and knit or crochet of prayer shawls for new babies, those in need of comfort and warmth, those who are ill, and those who are being baptized.

In December, we donate shawls to Charles County Nursing and Rehab Center.  We also make baby and youth blankets that are donated to service organizations such as The Center for Children, Children’s Aid of Charles County, and Project Linus. Contact Janet Sargent to sign up.
