Our minister is available to offer pastoral care for people who are struggling with loss, grief, or other challenges. Pastoral care differs from therapy or counseling in that the minister does not attempt to fix problems or address mental health issues. Rather, she provides a loving, accepting, hopeful presence, and, in doing so, makes it easier for people to get in touch with their own inner wisdom and strength. She can meet one on one, or with couples or other people who are struggling with relationship issues to facilitate healthy communication and mutual understanding.
Additionally, we have Lay Pastoral Ministry Team that will listen without judging, offering advice, or trying to fix anything. Having someone tuned in and able to be with you while you sort through your feelings allows you to tap into your own deep wisdom and capacity to heal.
