Pastoral Care

At First Christian Church, we are committed to walking with our members and friends throughout all of life's varied circumstances.  While that commitment certainly is true for times of joy and celebration, it is particularly important during times of difficulty and challenge.  


Listed below are our three primary resources for providing pastoral care plus a link to a submit a prayer request. Please feel free to request care from any - or all - of them.

The elders of First Christian Church help provide the core of our pastoral care ministries.  In addition to their on-going caregiving roles, we have elders who are on-call each month in order answer calls to care as they arise.  Some of the ministries our elders offer include:


- Hospital and Homebound Visits

- Bringing Communion to Those Who     Can't Attend Worship

- In Person and On-Going Prayer

- Providing Prayer and Conversation         Following Each Worship Service



A free and confidential service, Stephen Ministry pairs individuals who desire care with people who have been trained as Stephen Ministers to offer them, not advice or counsel, but Christian support and care. Some examples of why people seek care from a Stephen Minister include:

- Grief
- Divorce
- Job loss 
- Terminal or Chronic Illness
- Financial struggles 
- Spiritual Crisis
