Care Ministry Team

Ministering in prayer, God’s encouragement, comfort and hope

HOSPITAL VISITATION: Good Shepherd has a trained visitation team who make hospital visits. These wonderful listeners come prepared to pray with you and offer encouragement. If a hospital stay is coming up for you or your care recipient, you may wish to call the church office with your information, 503.663.5050.

IN-HOME VISITATION: If the person you care for is confined with a home bound condition, a Care Team member would love to come alongside them for prayer and encouragement. To request such a visit, email Mary Murphy.

FOOTPRINTS OF FAITH: The stories of your life can be a powerful memorial to God’s faithfulness and provision. When we record these notable events, they become like stepping stones — marking where we have been and creating a path for others to follow. Let this be written for a future generation that a people not yet created may praise the LORD. Ps 102:18. Are you interested in recording your journey or the stories of a loved one? We can help with resources to get you started. Email Lisa Clear.

MEMORIAL SERVICES: at GSCC are organized so that the bereaved family need only deal with one person throughout the planning process. This one person is part of a team who works closely with our pastors and a variety of ministries to facilitate the printing of memorial folders, customizing the order of service, reserving chairs for family members and supplying refreshments. Contact Lee Ann Cook, 503.668.8349

GRIEF SHARE: If you have lost a loved one, you know there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel. Grief Share is designed to be an exception, a safe place for hurting folks. The thirteen week class also provides valuable information about recovering from your grief and renewing your hope for the future.
