Prayer & Care

Loving Through the Ups & Downs of Life

From birth to death, our lives are full of many joys and many sorrows. Whether you are seeking support in time of celebration or transition, St. John is here to journey alongside you and your family.

Pastoral Counseling

Sometimes a listening ear is needed to sort out life’s challenges and concerns. The people of St. John trust in the confidence and care of our pastoral counseling team.

Examples of life moments when pastoral care is needed:

  • Celebrating a birth/adoption, baptism, graduation, wedding, retirement, anniversary, or birthday
  • Prayers during a pregnancy, job hunt, or final exams
  • Support while caring for a child, spouse, or parent with long-term physical or mental health issues
  • Grieving the death of a family member, friend, or pet
  • Transitioning after the end of a relationship, move, or major life change
  • Struggling with short-term or long-term health issues
  • Preparing for or healing from surgery
  • Facing end-of-life decisions

St. John family: Please call the church office whenever you (or a family member) are admitted to the hospital. Privacy laws and short hospital stays sometimes slow the channel of notification. Without your contact to the church, it’s quite likely that pastors will not hear of the hospitalization in any other way.

People of Prayer

Before planning, before the church service, before a meeting, before all that we do, we pray. And we want to encourage and equip you to do the same so that your life may be filled with unceasing prayer — prayer that comforts the hurting, heals the sick, expresses gratitude, and changes lives. For, God listens, God hears, God answers.

 

Jesus comforted those in pain, provided for those who were in need, and was a friend to all people. We seek to be the hands and feet of Jesus - as we care for others in our midst.
