Pastoral Care


Pastoral Care is building and providing a sense of belonging to Church of the Messiah. We reach out to the parishioners and community and minister to the sick, the needy, the weak and the lost.

There are many opportunities for you to serve wherever you see your gifts, talents and prayers leading you:

  • Casserole Patrol – providing in-home food and care as requested
  • Transportation, Hospital or home visitation, Phone call follow-up, assisting the Christian Service Center
  • Lay Eucharistic Visitor – taking communion to those unable to make a Sunday service

These ministries are flexible to the server’s time schedule and can be very rewarding.

We also provide Grief support in "Through the Valley of the Shadow of Death" classes and counseling as needed. The next class session will begin March 3, 2013 through April 14, 2013, it will run for six weeks. Jill Brown and Sarah Wolfe will be the facilitators.  If you have any questions contact Jill Brown at 407-656-5776.

If you have any questions concerning your part in these ministries, or need our help and support at this time, please contact the church office at 407-656-3218 or speak with Fr Tom.
