Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.
Pastoral Care - words and deeds shaped by love
Pastoral care is the embodiment of who Jesus is and what he does - God’s presence with us. When Jesus says, “I was hungry and you gave me food… a stranger and you welcomed me… naked and you gave me clothing, sick and you took care of me” (Matthew 25:35-36), he is describing pastoral care. James says it well, “Religion that is pure and holy before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress” (1:27).
Essentially, pastoral care is words and deeds shaped by love. That is what our Deacons (our primary pastoral care team) are called to do. If you are interested in serving with the Deacons, or if you are in need of pastoral care, please phone us (360.829.1222) or email Rev. Jim Thoburn.
