Caregiving is the work of Christian community. Many consider caregiving the work of the clergy, and yet caregiving is everyone’s work. From greeting fellow parishioners by name, to introducing yourself to those you do not know, to praying for those on our prayer lists, to providing a ride, a meal, a loving phone call. God’s people at Grace Church care for one another.
Both clergy and trained parish members make pastoral visits. Pastoral visits offer a ministry of presence – of being with those in need of comfort and/or company. If you are a part of the Grace Church community and in need of a pastoral visit, please contact our Rector, Sarah Odderstol. If you are experiencing a pastoral emergency, you may reach Pastor Sarah at 847-989-6870.
