Scripture teaches us that the world is a fallen place. In a fallen world there are many situations of oppression and exploitation that tear down God's creation. As a people called to build up the kingdom of God, it is our duty to be a voice for those whose voices are not heard, to call out systems of exploitation, and to seek to transform unjust structures to be in harmony with God's purpose in all things.
Be careful for yourselves and for all the people God has given you. The Holy Spirit gave you the work of caring for this flock. (Acts 20:28)
No matter what your age or stage of life, we all experience times of change, challenge, difficulty and need. It is during those times that we need to know that we are not alone. Pastoral care is one of the ways in which we can come alongside people and help them through uncharted waters to arrive at a better place with health and wholeness.
Prayer – as a community of faith, we recognize the importance of prayer. Need prayer? We want to pray with you and for you. Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Visits – when you are shut-in or you or a loved one is in hospital, we want to be able to support you the best we can. During Covid-19 restrictions, visits will typically be by phone, but in-person visits will resume as soon as possible. Please use our contact form to let us know of people who would benefit from visits.
All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. God uses it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work.2 Timothy 3:16 - 17 (New Living Translation)
