Pastoral Care

Our Vision

To create a culture where the people of St. Michael’s Church pastor to one another with open hearts, healthy emotional attitudes, good boundaries, and a sense of God’s presence in their work.

OUR PROGRAM

THE BIG PICTURE: 4 TIERS OF PASTORAL CARE

Tier 1- Caring Hearts  When life's difficult circumstances, whether it be serious illness or injury, make preparing dinner difficult, Caring Hearts would like to help! Our volunteers would love to cook a meal and deliver it to you up to 2-3 times a week for several weeks.

Caring Hearts phone messages are checked once a day at 9 am.  Please give at least 3 days notice for all requests.

Tier 2- Pastoral Partners  Offer intentional hospitality, connection and support through  cards and regular check ins with members who may be feeling isolated due to illness, other life circumstances or being new to the church. Please contact Deacon Cindy 916 488 3550 ext 20  or deaconcindy@stmichaelscarmichael.org  to be connected with a Pastoral Partner or to find out how to become one.
