Parish Care Ministries

GriefCare Ministry

The vision and mission of GriefCare Ministry is to reach out in Christian love to those who have suffered the loss of a loved one and to walk through a very frightening, painful and often lonely time with them.  Support Groups are available year round and are facilitated by trained and experienced leaders prepared to care for those who are suffering loss. Email griefcare@colchurch.com for more information and/or to register for upcoming support groups.

 

The GriefCare Ministry is taking registrations for the fall group which will begin on September 9.  Crown of Life members and non-members are welcome to begin attending at any point.  Share this program with anyone you know who may be mourning the loss of a loved one. It may be a recent loss or an old loss that has never been resolved.  *Please note that due to Covid19 concerns, our fall group will meet via Zoom every Wednesday morning from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. (AZ time).  This is an excellent time to share our program with family and friends in Arizona, as well as nationwide and even worldwide!  Information concerning our fall group is on the Crown of Life website and Facebook page.  Feel free to click on “share” to Facebook or email this information to individuals who would benefit from our grief recovery group.  Our Zoom groups have been very supportive, encouraging and healing.  Call Christine Escobar at 623-218-6793 or email griefcare@colchurch.com for more information and/or to register.

 

PrayerCare Ministry

It is the desire of PrayerCare Ministry to pray over your prayer needs and join with you in your praises. Every day your requests will be sent to the Daily Prayer Team (people committed to take time each day for prayer) and to the prayer groups who gather weekly for prayer (the Prayer Partners and Prayer Warriors).

Please rest assured that your prayer requests will immediately be sent to a secure e-mail site and will be treated with utmost confidentiality.

Your request will remain active for one week unless you specify a longer period of time.

 

SmallGroupCare Ministry

The activities of SmallGroupCare include Christian care for one another, studying God’s Word together, praying for one another’s needs and finding ways to use God-given talents.
