Pastoral Care is about empowering one another to have a shepherd’s heart just as Jesus did. We model and teach our people to care of one another through different ways at New Covenant, including inner healing, life care, and simple gatherings. We know we have to take care of ourselves in mind, body, and spirit first so that we can take care of each other well. There are many teams you can be a part of, connecting and strengthening people so that we all might experience life in its fullness. Come be a part of sharing and receiving the love of God through Pastoral Care.
This is provided during most services to offer assistance with prayer needs. Volunteers are trained and held to a high standard of privacy. Altar ministers are trained to assist the minister of the service.
This is a program of New Covenant Church dedicated to ministering to the physical needs of our congregation as well as those within our community. It can consist of money, food, gas, shelter, clothing, etc., as the need is assessed and approved by a Staff Pastor at the request of the Chaplains. The resources offered through this program are provided specifically by the congregation.
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 surgeries, prayer circle calls, getting meals out where needed, caring for families during funerals, visitation of the home bound and other general pastoral care of our church family.
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. They also provide immediate care during office hours, Monday-Thursday, 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Contact Chip Plemmons at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the church office for more information.
LIFE CARE ministry
This ministry is a helps ministry that incorporates the gifts and talents of many of our congregation in assisting church family who may have home bound situations or 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 paper products and basic necessities that might be helpful during this time of need.
Simple Gatherings is a way to connect socially with others at New Covenant. Today’s lifestyle is busy, so we’ve created simple ways to get to know one another. Find out more by contacting email@example.com.
