Making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

Care Ministry



 A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another.

John 13:34

Congregational Care

Congregational Care at the First United Methodist Church of Holland offers encouragement, practical support, and prayer to our church family.

Jesus is very clear that a significant part of our ministry for Him is to care about one other in love. Our church is intentional about offering opportunities to meet the spiritual, emotional, physical, and relational concerns of all members of our church family. Our Congregational Care Team seeks to fulfill Jesus’ command.

  Director of Care Ministries, in cooperation with Senior Pastor Lynn Pier-Fitzgerald, provides leadership and direction to the Congregational Care team.
