The Congregational Care Ministry provides comfort, care, and support for people in times of need.
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. (II Corinthians 1:3-4)
Ministry with Older Persons
This ministry encourages the involvement of older persons in all aspects of life by promoting growth, education, training, fellowship, and spiritual support through its many outreach services.
At Presbyterian Homes, Westminster members lead worship the third Sunday of every other month. The worship service begins at 2:30pm.
Member to Member Care Members of the congregation visit members who are living in nursing homes or who are homebound.
Members receive training to partner with clergy in providing comfort and support for people in hospital.
The Intercessory Prayer Partners are committed to praying for people and concerns given to them. These people receive your information confidentially and pass it along only to the clergy and to other members of the prayer group. To confidentially pass along a prayer request, email Claudia Kapitan or call her at 612.332.3421.
