care Team

We strive to offer connection and compassion to those who are homebound (unable to leave their home without assistance) and in skilled care facilities. We do this in two ways: One is through monthly contacts from the Care Team. The Care Team is made up of people from our church who are passionate about listening, offering encouragement, and connecting individuals with the life of the church. The second is through clergy visits or calls that are offered on a rotating schedule throughout the year. 

If you or someone in your family would like contact from the Care Team or would like to receive clergy visits, please let us know by contacting Rev. Tania at 616-681-3524 or

Prayer Requests


Charlie has some major shoulder damage & is having issues with significant pain. He has surgery scheduled March 27 but Dr. is reluctant as he feels he's not a good surgery candidate. Charlie is currently on pain meds which help a bit but not a lot. We are trying to decide which direction is best, surgery or pain pills. Prayers would be greatly appreciated. Thank-you, Mary Pardue


Prayer of thanks. My friend Shirley, whose son passed away in August, wants to thank you for all your prayers. A kind person opened her home to Shirley once her house sold and before she was able to get her passport. She also helped her with all the documents she needed for probate and to get her passport. She also took her to church and included her in all the family holiday celebrations. Her passport came in on January 11 and her flight to England was scheduled to leave Wednesday night and was to arrive in England Thursday morning. I have not heard from her, but she wanted me to thank you for all your prayers. Please continue to keep her in your prayers as she is still grieving the loss of her son, even though she is now with her sister. Many Blessings


Our friend, Erin, has been released from the Hospital. Her fever has subsided, but she is still experiencing migraine headaches, which, hopefully can be treated with meds. Thankyou for your prayers. We continue to pray for full recovery.
