Pastoral Care

Benevolence is a program of New Covenant Church dedicated to ministering to the physical needs of our congregation as well as others from within our community. It can consist of the giving of money, food, gas, providing shelter, clothing, etc., as the need is assessed and approved by either a Staff Pastor or Associate Pastor. 
 
Pastor on Call: Pastoral Team members serve as pastor on call on a weekly rotating basis.  The purpose of this ministry is to serve the needs for immediate care of the congregation of New Covenant Church. They serve by making hospital visits which may include being present during all surgeries; prayer chain calls; getting meals out where needed; caring for families during funerals; visitation of the home bound and other general pastoral care of the people. 
 
Pastor on Duty:  Pastoral Staff serves one day a week in the office as Pastor on Duty.  Their responsibility during this day is to take care of those who may “walk-in” in need of ministry and/or have a benevolence need. A pastor is on call Monday-Thursday from 9 AM to 3 PM.
 
Chaplains:  Chaplains are trained lay leaders who serve in many areas of the Church and Community. They may be called to travel with the Pastor on Call on hospital visits, make home visits, make phone calls, and may serve as needed for disaster situations and/or members of Rapid Response Teams. Chaplaincy training is scheduled during Fall Semester in a Life Group. Call the church office to find out more.

Dorcas Ministry:  This ministry is a helps ministry that incorporates the gifts and talents of many of our congregation in assisting others in the congregation who may have home bound situations or who may be limited in caring for themselves. Care packages are taken to families where there has been a death of a family member. The package is filled with all of the paper products and basic necessities that might be helpful during this time of need.
 
Meal Teams and Care Packages:  Meal teams are groups of people who are organized to prepare meals for families during the death and funeral of family members as well as to take meals to those going home from the hospital or in home bound situations where meals are needed. Care packages are taken to families where there has been a death of a family member. The package is filled with all of the paper products and basic necessities that might be needed during this time of need.
