Pastoral Care

At Bethel, we teach, preach and live the truth that every one of us is loved, valued and belongs. Our pastoral care team models and equips our community to live this truth by providing care that is confidential, Christ-focused and spiritual. Our pastoral care includes:

  • Comprehensive support for members who are ill, hospitalized, or experience the loss of a loved one, job, or relationship
  • A network of caring ministries within our community, (i.e. Befrienders, prayer ministry, home communion, home meals, professional services referral, etc.)
  • Providing spiritual care, spiritual direction and spiritual growth opportunities
  • Home and workplace visits which encourage our members to recognize that all of life is an expression of faith
  • Welcoming visitors with timely communication and the invitation to join our community
  • New member assimilation
  • Educational and support groups for special needs
  • Retreat ministry
