Get Care and Support

Need Care and Support? We Can Help

If you’re grieving a loss, need assistance, or find yourself at a crossroad in your life, we can help. For any of the following support, contact Emily Black or Rev. Mark Brainerd (unless otherwise indicated.)

  • Get pastoral care and counseling for issues related to marriage, baptism, grief, funerals or any crisis situation in which you may need Christian guidance and prayer. Contact us
  • Talk with a Stephen Ministry team member, who is trained to offer support for those who are grieving, suffering a crisis, in need of long-term care, dying, hospitalized, divorcing, or experiencing any type of loss or crisis. Get connected
  • Request prayers from the Intercessory Prayer Group. Members of this group are gifted with a strong sense of prayer. Each week, they receive a confidential list of prayer requests. When you submit your confidential request, they will hold you and your concerns before God in prayer.  
  • Get assistance when you experience challenges or loss
    • Cancer Support Group.Cancer is a journey, but not one you must travel alone. We provide prayer, support, education, and fellowship for survivors and their families. Read more.
    • Prenatal Loss Support Network where women who experience miscarriage can share their experiences with other women who have suffered similar losses. Our goal is to provide space where what can be a privately devastating occurrence into our common circle of prayer and support. Read more .
    • Infertility Network. If you are yearning to conceive a child, you have a team to support you by listening and offering a caring and supportive presence.
    • Bereavement Care Team Ministry. To ease the burden when a loved one dies, members may request a meal delivered at home, at the church before or after the memorial service, or at a reception at the church following the memorial service.
    • Culinary Care Team Ministry. When members or friends of Westminster have a short-term critical need (such as sickness, injury or out-of-town death), they can receive compassionate care through the delivery of a meal.
    • Get assistance if you are elderly, homebound or disabled
      • Transportation Ministry. If you need transportation to and from church services, a volunteer will pick you up at your home and drop you off after service. 
      • Communion. Volunteers administer Communion to homebound members each month. 
      • Men's & Women's Visitation. Volunteers visit members who have difficulty getting out or to church. This ministry of presence provides caring hearts and gift of conversation. 
      • Helping Hands. This handy group of Westminster members provides routine household assistance and basic fix-up tasks for elderly and disabled church members with minor home-repair problems. 
      • Mobile Meals. Qualified seniors can get meals delivered to their homes by Senior Resources of Guilford, a non-profit organization that promotes independent living for older adults. Westminster has a long history of serving meals through this important ministry.
