Care Groups

In this time of physical distancing, we all miss the connection that comes with Sunday morning worship, Dartball, Women's group meetings, and other activities in the church building. In a sense, we're all shut-ins!

To keep us all connected in relationship, Pastor Erik & Laura Stainbrook organized Care Groups. Each care group has roughly 6-10 households, with one leader/organizer, and will be responsible for staying in communication with each other weekly. However you wish to organize is up to you, so long as you are caring for each person in some way. Phone calls, cards in the mail, group emails, videoconferencing - whatever works for your group! Your organizer will be in touch with you this week to start the process.

If you find in your communications that there is a need or a concern that Pastor Erik should be aware of, please pass that along to him ASAP. In the meantime, the Pastor is working his way through the church directory to make contact with everyone. While he's trying to get to everyone, he might miss a person or two. So if you haven't heard from him by the end of this week, please call him at 412-480-7938. The Pastor will continue to check in on folks regularly via phone calls or text.
