Pastoral Care:

As a Pastor, I seek to be available to all who might need someone to listen, someone to cry on or to. It does not matter if you visit every once in a while, or if you are a faithful attendee, I am here to serve. My door is always open.

 

If you know of someone who is in need of pastoral care due to physical or spiritual needs, please contact me so I can help.

 

In Love,

Pastor Holly
