The Pastoral Care Ministry is concerned with expressing the love of Jesus as he would express his love to those with emotional, psychological, physical health, and spiritual needs. It is our responsibility to extend a personal touch to meet these needs, to promote a caring concern within the body of Christ at Park Cities, and to provide professional resources that address needs of those within the body of believers and those in our community.
The Pastoral Care Ministry provides:
Ministry to those who are ill, either in local hospitals, at home or in care facilities.
Ministry with those who are bereaved, by providing funeral/memorial services.
Counseling resources and referrals to those with special counseling needs.
Ministries such as grief support, cancer support, etc.

Grief Support Group
Grief Share is a 13 week Christian-based support group open to anyone who is grieving the loss of someone close. The group focuses on the process of grief, the many ways grief impacts our lives, and how to begin the healing journey. It also unites the group members in a common bond of support for one another. Through Grief Share you will gain insights into what you are experiencing and you will find comfort and encouragement as you walk through the difficult time of grief. Each week, participants will view and discuss videos featuring respected counselors and others who have faced their own grief and who share their insights on how to help those walking through loss. The discussion time is moderated by Dr. Jack Martin. Workbooks are $15.
