Pastoral care for individuals and families at the time of illness or death is at the heart of our shared ministry. The staff ministers seek to be fully present to counsel and pray with individuals and families through challenging times. They visit members in the hospital and at home visits, for counseling and conversation. There are several ways to let us know of your pastoral care need. Call the church office at 301-598-5312 or complete the online notification which will be received by the staff ministers.
In case of hospitalization or move to a nursing care facility, please call the Chapel office. Current health privacy regulations will not allow hospitals, rehabilitation centers and other care centers to provide information about patients. The ministers rely upon families, neighbors, and friends to notify us of needs.
