CARE

Church Care

For spiritual care and nurture...

Prayer

"But he would withdraw to deserted places and pray." Luke 5:16

 

Even Jesus needed prayer and a break from the daily grind to recharge, refresh and renew his spirit - away from others and with his Heavenly Father. We believe in the power of prayer. It's what gets us through the tough days, allows us to share joys, and helps us to give thanks and praise.

 

Asking others to join us in prayer strengthens our faith and helps stand in the gap when words fail us. It also shows God's faithfulness when we thank God for his answers to prayer. You may ask for prayer in a number of ways: Use our online request form, call the church office, 317.784.9508, or write your request on a bulletin insert and place it in the basket as you leave the sanctuary.

Visitation & Care 

Our pastors want to be present with you if you are in the hospital or if you need home visitation. They are also pleased to meet with you at the church office should you want to discuss an issue with one of them. 

 

Please call the church office, 317.784.9508, to let them know of your need.

 

 

** Due to HIPPA regulations, hospitals will not call to inform the church of hospitalizations. Please contact us if your family or someone you know is hospitalized. 

Baptisms

Baptism is a meaningful and memorable occasion, a sacrament of our faith. Perhaps you have a question about baptisms? See some FAQs below. For more information, please contact the church office or 317.784.9508.

Funerals

"The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures; he leads me beside still waters; he restores my soul." -Psalm 23:1-3a (NRSV)

 

It is a privilege to walk alongside you before, during, and after the loss of a loved one.

 

Life's Final Moments

Our pastors are available to pray with you when the death of a loved one is imminent.

 

Grieving and Remembering

When a death has occurred, our pastors are available to be with you and to provide the service for your loved one. Services can happen either at the church, at a funeral home, or at a graveside, depending on family preference.
