Pastoral Care – Incarnation Cares

Pastoral Care Commission is composed of Incarnation volunteers who are committed to helping our church family in time of need. It is not long term care, and is designed to help one another through an immediate time of need. Please, know that clergy is also available, as needed, for home or hospital visits.

We may be reached by calling the church office, contacting the monthly care coordinator, or calling the person who is in charge of the particular need.

Intercessory Prayer Circle

This is a mostly unseen but vital part of our pastoral care ministry, and, we believe, highly effective. Our purpose is emergency prayer for parishioners, neighbors, our nation, and for worldwide concerns.

We confidentially receive requests for prayer, for healing, for thanksgivings, for “all sorts and conditions,” and pass these requests on to the heads of each of our prayer circles. The form and style of prayer is determined by the individual prayer circle member. Our prayer list is reviewed monthly. Those who for various reasons are not able to be active in parish life, often find this a rewarding ministry.

Please call the church office for prayer requests or to become an Intercessor. Diana Ardley heads the prayer chain, which is in place for crisis/emergency situations.

Lay Eucharistic Visitors

Lay Eucharistic Visitors are licensed by the Bishop to take the Eucharist to parishioners or others who are unable to attend church services. They visit, listen, pray with, and offer the Eucharist to those who are sick or disabled or for some other reason are unable to leave their homes.

Please contact the church office (579-2604), if you are interested in becoming a Lay Eucharistic Visitor, or if you desire a Visitor to bring the Eucharist to you.

Greeting Card Team

This ministry sends get well, bereavement and holidays card and notes to parishioners who are home bound and/or recovering.

The Casserole Brigade

We have a Casserole Brigade of volunteer cooks who will prepare meals on order for people recovering from an operation or an illness.

If you have this need, call the church office at (707) 579-2604 and let your need be known.

Need A Ride?

If you need a ride to an appointment or to church (must be able to walk to car and get in and out of car independently) please call the church office.
