Pastoral Care

Taking care of those in need is one of our most important activities as followers of Jesus Christ.  From taking Home Communion to our homebound or sick members to providing prayer support and counseling to those who are ill or in crisis, our ongoing care of one another exemplifies our Christian community.


  • St. Luke’s Prayer Chain

  • Caring and Sharing

  • Prayer Shawl Ministry

  • Lay Eucharistic Visitors (LEVs)

  • Helping Hands

  • Pastoral Counseling

  • Pastoral Liturgies

I talk to God. A lot. I ask for forgiveness. I pray for others. I pray for myself.  When in the prayer “zone”, I actually think that one of these times, I will hear God, be told what I should do, and all questions will be answered. Could it be that when I was asked to participate in “Caring and Sharing”, “Coffee Hour” or “Home Gathering” and when my husband Allen was asked to serve on the “Vestry” or on the “Finance Committee”, that the invitations were parts of a larger discussion from God?

Participating in the Ministries of St. Luke’s can be a way for each of us to have a discussion with God’s love language.  Being a Reader, or a Greeter, or part of the Prayer Chain or providing food for Loaves and Fishes or participating in one (or more) of the other ministries, helps to hear God when He is talking to us, loud and clear!
