Care

Your church family is here when you need it most.

 

St. Andrew is a community that cares, offering support, presence, and comfort, and a soft place to land no matter where you find yourself on life’s journey.  Care at St. Andrew means showing up for one another and the community. We offer individual and group opportunities for support, aiming to decrease isolation and equip people with coping skills and strategies to face life. Care begins with the youngest among us and extends to our elders, with no one outside of the circle of care.

Prayer

We believe that prayer makes a difference. It
connects us to God and one another.
Whether you want someone to pray for you,
need a sacred space to pray, or want to pray
for others, we are here to support you. 

Congregational Care Team

We seek to inspire our community to become the hands and feet of Christ —for one another and for those outside the church walls. 

St. Andrew clergy, in partnership with Congregational Care Ministers (CCMs,) and other members of the Care Team work together to serve and support those in our community through hospitalizations, grief, crisis, difficulties associated with aging, end of life, divorce, loss of a job, and other challenges that come to us in the course of our lives. The Care Team offers visitation, phone email/ support, provides support for families at memorials, work with clergy to triage care needs, and so much more. If you would like to know more about the Care Team at St. Andrew contact us.

Grief Group

Grief is both universal and unique, and when we connect with one another and express our grief, our grief isn’t taken away but often less heavy than when we bear the weight of it alone or in silence. 

In April, St. Andrew will offer a facilitated 4-week bereavement group for adults exploring grief themes, the impact of grief, and sharing strategies for navigating grief and loss in a community of trust. The group is open to persons grieving all types of death loss no matter how or when the death occurred. A four-week commitment is required. A four-week commitment is required. Learn more and Register.

In the coming months especially, please be gentle with yourself and allow space for your grief. No need to do more than you want, and don’t do anything that does not serve your soul and your loss. Reach out and stay in touch with people who love and care for you. We all need support at certain times in our lives. You have a circle of Care here at St. Andrew. 

Mondays | April 8–29 | 5–7 pm
