CONGREGATIONAL CARE

Congregational Care at St. John's is led by our Parish Nurses and the Director of Congregational Life. Any member of St. John's can utilize our Congregational Care resources. The aim of Congregational Care is to make sure that every aspect of our members' lives is taken care of and looked after. St. John's is a community that goes beyond Sunday worship. Through Congregational Care we provide the care and time that every member needs.


Parish Nurses

Our Parish Nurses provide emotional and spiritual support, guide members in health decision-making, actively listen to health concerns, make referrals to congregational and community resources, and act as a health resource to members.

Stephen Ministry

St. John's Stephen Ministry equips lay people to provide confidential, on-to-one Christian care to individuals in our congregation and community who are experiencing difficulties in their lives.

Eucharistic Ministers

The practice of carrying communion to the sick and homebound has been encouraged in the Lutheran tradition since 1978. St. John's Eucharistic Ministers receive training so that they may serve those who are absent from worship.

Prayer Partners

Prayer Partners is a ministry that acknowledges and incorporates the awesome power of prayer into its work.

A MESSAGE FROM OUR NURSES


Cindy Carroll & Susan (Suzi) Carson

"The emphasis of Congregational Care at St. John’s is a whole-person approach; body, mind and spirit. Our goal is for St. John’s to be a place where health, healing and wholeness are valued. Through our ministries, we offer resources for individuals, families and the community. Congregational care is not a substitute for pastoral care, medical care, or community health. It is a collaborative partnership with these disciplines to offer resources, education and a communication network within our congregation and the community we serve. Congregational care is coordinated by the parish nurses. We advocate for health, healing and wholeness through one-on-one nursing education and interactions, visitation, bereavement and prayer ministry. We share a 20 hour /week position. Cindy is in the office Tuesday through Thursday from 9:00 am to 2:30 pm, and Suzi is in the office on Tuesdays from 9:00 am to 2:30 pm. "
