Let us do good to all people, especially to those who are of the household of faith.
We realize that our Pastor is not the only person called to care for our church family. We are all called to care for one another. A church is not full of perfect people with no problems. We are all sinners. We are regular people who have struggles and trials. We are a family and we support each other though the difficulties of life. Sometimes when faced with disaster, death, or medical issues we can use a little extra help.
Pastoral Care Teams, under leadership of the Senior Pastor, assist in supporting the emotional, physical and social needs of Church Members and work to strengthen Members spiritually as called upon to do so. These Lay Ministry teams care for Members through prayer, visitation, practical ministry and encouragement as called to do so by the Senior Pastor.
We accomplish this in a number of ways.
First Impressions: This team greets and follow-up with visitors.
Hospital Visits: When one of our church family is ill, we want them to know they are not alone.
Member In Reach: Keeping contact with church family members is a priority.
Benevolence: Sometimes people need a helping hand when times get rough. We support each other.
Additionally, we offer support services for our Church Family through trained Stephen Ministers. Stephen Ministers are, lay people trained to come alongside church family members and support them after a crisis. The training includes 50 hours of class work from a national organization to prepare our caregivers for a variety of situations. Please follow this link for more information about Stephen Ministries help we provide here at Lansing First Southern.
