At Brookside Pastoral Care is given by the pastors and other appointed leaders. Our Spiritual Formation & Care Coordinator and Senior Pastor are available to give care and comfort to members in times of sorrow and in joy (births, marriages, illness, death).
Brookside elders, deacons, and other leaders are equipped to be active in relationships of pastoral care. You are encouraged to talk to your Shepherd Elder or Service Deacon as they provide ministries of spiritual and physical care for members and those in the surrounding community.
Stephen Ministers are trained caregivers who are available to provide ongoing spiritual care to those going through difficult times. You are encouraged to contact the Senior Pastor or your elder or deacon for a referral to a Stephen Minister or follow the link above for more information.
Brookside also participates in the Church Assistance Program (CAP). This is a confidential service which provides initial counseling services for any member who is in need of help.
For more information about a pastoral care issue, please contact our Spiritual Formation & Care Coordinator.
