What is Congregational Care?The primary vehicle for administering congregational care to Seven Rivers Presbyterian Church is the Congregational Care Team. The Congregational Care Team utilizes the members of Seven Rivers in ministering to the needs of their brothers and sisters who are members and regular guests.
Opportunities for Members to Get Involved
- Providing meals on occasion (making a meal for a family at special times of need such as when someone goes in the hospital, death in the family, etc.)
- Hospital & Shut-in visitation (visiting someone who is in the hospital or that is unable to leave their home)
- Respite Care (providing a caregiver with some personal time by staying with the person needing care for a brief period of time)
- Transportation to doctor's visits (driving someone to the doctor who may not be able to transport themselves)
- Financial assessment (sitting down and assessing the financial needs of someone that has requested this help, assisting them in developing a budget, etc.)
- Ministry to those convalescing (visiting those who are convalescing after illness or surgery)
- Visiting those with cancer or who need chronic care
- Ministering to pregnant women (checking on the needs of pregnant mothers and encouraging them)
