Ways We Care

"Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ."
- Galatians 6:2

When you are faced with the trials of life, there are just two choices: Navigate the storm on your own, or allow others to make the journey with you. That's what our Care Ministry is all about. Whether you are caring for a relative suffering from Alzheimer's Disease, dealing with the recent death of a loved one, battling an addiction, or grieving the loss of your marriage to divorce, we can help you move from hurting to healing.
 
At Custer Road UMC, we care for one another. When challenging or difficult circumstances arise, we are a family. We support and love each other through all sorts of circumstances. Trained Care Ministry volunteers seek to be the hands and feet of Christ, nurturing and caring for others through life’s challenges. We offer a variety of support groups and individuals to help our members within Custer Road UMC and our community. Click here to learn more.


Care Ministers provide a compassionate, confidential presence in all circumstances as well as in the following services:
  • Bereavement notes and Journeying Through Grief booklets sent after the loss of a family member.

  • Care Calls for All, an outreach that contacts all adult members of the congregation on their birthday to extend the church’s good wishes.

  • Notes, phone calls and visits to congregation members needing support during hospitalization, birth, death or illness.

  • Homebound Ministry – Offering Communion to homebound individuals. Contact Tiffany Hosey, Director of Prayer Ministry, via email at thosey@crumc.org to receive communion or get involved.

  • Bereavement Services – Assists ministers at church with memorial services and receptions.
