“Love your neighbour as yourself.” As Jesus taught us, we are all called to care for one another. Working closely with the Minister, the Pastoral Care Team members support the congregation’s ministry of caring by focusing on responding to the pastoral, spiritual and emotional needs of the members of GCUC. Once we know of these needs, we can offer a confidential, caring visit or call at home or hospital, and prayers as requested. Please advise one of the Team members if you, or anyone you know of in our church family, would appreciate receiving pastoral care. The Pastoral Care contact for August is Joyce Kohut, . Alternatively, please leave a message at the NEW confidential Pastoral Care/Healing Pathway number: 613-435-4500.
