Our vision is to live as a Christ centered church where members and friends of LOPC are welcomed, cared for, nurtured and encouraged to share in the ministry of Christ. Our intergenerational care ministers to the needs of the community. — Congregational Care Vision
Congregational care involves supporting and encouraging people during difficult and challenging times across the lifespan. The cross of Jesus Christ calls us to find people in the broken places of life and provide practical, emotional, and spiritual care. There are a variety of ways our intergenerational team provides care and support:
Clergy are available to conduct memorial services, as well as spiritual care and support through visitation and spiritual guidance.
Deacons respond to many needs including providing meals visitation in home and care facilities, serving home communion, providing emergency assistance.
The Congregational Care Ministry partners with Family Ministry, Youth Ministry, and Senior Ministry in sponsoring inter-generational care event(s) which address the needs of families and youth.
Stephen Ministers are trained to provide one-on-one confidential care to anyone facing challenges and transitions.
The Prayer Team provides support and encouragement by actively praying for the needs and concerns of LOPC members, visitors, and friends.
Senior Care Ministry
Senior Care Ministry supports older adults in our congregation and our community. They provide programs and activities to encourage spiritual and intellectual growth for its seniors and provide care for older adults experiencing changes and challenges.
Congregational Care develops Support Groups as needs emerge and are identified including a Dementia Support Group and Grief Support for spouses.
