Home \ Care & Support \ The Care Team If you need assistance, please call Rev. Lisa Henderson at (571) 282-0204.The MissionThe mission of The Care Team is to foster a climate that upholds the Biblical mandate to “love one another as Christ has loved us” (John 15:12) and to “Bear one another’s burdens, and in this way fulfill the law of Christ” (Galatians 6:2). What We DoThe Care Team is a core of trained TFCA volunteers dedicated to assisting parishioners with a variety of needs, from help with yard work or emergency meals to assessment of a need and referral to appropriate resources, or lending a listening ear. It is a "first point of contact" for a person in need. Each work day a Team member is in The Care Team office available to take phone calls or to see parishioners on a drop-in basis.The Care Team can provide information on resources within and outside the church, connect parishioners with an appropriate person (clergy, layperson, professional), provide an emergency meal, help brainstorm about a problematic situation, or simply lend a listening ear. Team members are not therapists, but they make calls and send notes of encouragement to parishioners who are ill, grieving, or experiencing difficult times. The Care Team is directed by The Rev. Lisa Henderson. She is in the office Monday-Friday on a part-time basis and is available to meet with people, help assess concerns, and make appropriate recommendations and/or referrals to carefully screened counselors and resources in the community. Confidentiality is carefully guarded. Needs And Blessings AdsThese ads serve to build community within our church family. Submissions to Needs & Blessings are for TFCA parishioners and ministries only, subject to approval/editing by Glenis Pittman, email@example.com.
