Neighborhood Team liaisons to the Cedars Pastoral Care Team (PCT) members keep their eyes and ears open for those “in need.” But we’re not the ones who always provide the help. Our job is to connect “care needers” with potential “care givers.”
Cedars has grown rapidly from an intimate family of 30 to a congregation of over 150. To help meet the needs of our extended family, a Pastoral Care system network has been developed. In the “old days” word spread quickly. Today it’s different. And, frankly, it’s the PCT that needs your help now.
For most people, it’s not easy to ask for help. You can assist by letting ministers Barbara and Jaco (or one of the team members listed below) know if you think someone needs our help. And/or you can offer to be helpful, as many of you do.
We can arrange to bring meals, get rides to the doctor, refer you to other services available in our area, and even do more personal things, like writing thank you notes.
Being a gracious receiver is equally as important as being a gracious helper. And being a “connector” is one of the most important roles of all. All three are needed to make our Pastoral Care Team system network as helpful as possible.
