The mission of the Christian Care Ministry is to be a church family
in action for our members. We work through four teams to:
grieve with, and
minster to our members face to face, one person and one situation at a time
pray for those on the Friends & Family Prayer list, and
pass on donated medical equipment, most of it previously used, to anyone who needs it.
Our member-volunteers are actively involved in bringing flowers, writing personal cards, making personal visits and providing meaningful gifts from the church to our members at special times in their lives.
We visit members in health care facilities or at home, make calls of condolence and sympathy and assist at Memorial and Funeral services.
There is a new addition to the Christian Caring Committee — The Visitation Team. Our purpose is to call and make visits to persons in need and requesting visitation. Typically inquires are made to Rev. Herrin or Rev. Dion who then contact Elder Bill Thorpe to arrange appropriate connections. If you or someone you know at LPC might need visitation (Recent surgery? In need of prayer? Just want a friendly visit?), please notify one of our pastors. Interested in joining our Team? Please contact Bill Thorpe at (843) 706-2729.
The Stephen Ministry, of 13 formally certified trained volunteers, provide a regular long-term personal care through sympathetic and understanding listening. Stephen Ministers care for those in the congregation, as well as others, who are going through a difficult time in their lives, through a one-hour confidential visit once a week.
LPC has a medical lending closet for those in the community needing medical equipment. We have walkers, canes, crutches, shower chairs, etc. If you are in need of any of these supplies, or if you have equipment you no longer need you would like to donate, please contact the church office.
