What We Are About
The mission of the Congregational Care Ministry is to be a church family in action for our congregation. Through our various ministries below, we seek to celebrate, congratulate, and encourage, as well as listen to, grieve with, and minister to our congregation and those beyond our walls.

Our Lay Visitation Ministry team includes church members who are committed to providing care and assistance as needed or just a friendly face to our church congregation. Members who are seen by our lay care visitors may be dealing with health or bereavement issues, may be homebound, living in a care facility or would just enjoy a visit or call to keep them connected to LPC. If you would like to participate in this important ministry, please contact Karen Couser at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Church members who have offered to pray for the needs of others are sent prayer requests by email, usually for deaths, surgeries and other urgent situations that have been requested by members.
The Prayerful Stitches Ministry provides prayer shawls, lap robes and throws as a symbol of Christ's care to people in a range of seasons in life whether for comfort, joy, or gratitude. If you knit or crochet and are interested in sharing your talents with this fulfilling ministry, please contact Sloan Gray at email@example.com.
LPC has a medical lending closet for those in the community needing medical equipment. We have walkers, canes, crutches, shower chairs, etc. If you are in need of any of these supplies, or if you have equipment you no longer need that you would like to donate, please contact the church office.
The Flower Ministry team at LPC distributes flowers to members of the congregation who are in need of cheer because of health issues, bereavement, special life events, or simply in appreciation. After the Sunday service, a team member rearranges the donated chancel flowers into smaller bouquets, which are then delivered by another dedicated team member. If you are interested in participating in this important ministry approximately once a month, please contact Fran Parker at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Congregational Care Ministry also involves connecting with our congregation through birthday calls to all members, greeting cards to those who are experiencing health issues, bereavement, special life events or those who need extra cheer, meals as needed during difficult times and receptions following memorial services for family and friends to gather and offer support to those dealing with the death of a loved one. If you would like to join our ministry in any of these areas, please contact Jerri Hanna at email@example.com.
