Care & Support

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

Care and Support Ministries

Westminster cares for its members in many ways. Pastors and members of the congregation provide hospital and home visitation. Deacons take chancel flowers to those who are recovering from illness, grieving, or celebrating. Christmas poinsettias and Easter flowers are shared with homebound members, and home Communion is offered during the two weeks prior to Easter. Registered nurses offer blood pressure screening on the third Sunday of each month. Members of the congregation pray with and for one another in the Westminster chapel, during home visits, and in their private prayers. Westminster’s Memorial Services and Grief Support ministries offer comfort and hope in the promise of the Resurrection for the families and friends of both members and non-members.

Westminster’s Care and Support ministries are led by David Tsai Shinn, Associate Pastor for Congregational Care, and by the Congregational Care Council of lay leaders. Visit the links below to learn more about our support ministries, and visit the links on the right to learn more about affiliated centers providing counseling and social connection services. You’re also invited to sign up for the weekly Community in Prayer email so you can life up the joys and concerns of the Westminster family in your own prayers.
