Meet The Care team
The mission of the Care Team at Granite City Church is to walk alongside people, that they might discover just how passionately God cares about His children. At Granite City Church we see everyone in the congregation as family; and we care deeply about everyone. Some of Jesus’s earliest followers formed a team of “deacons” to help the early church leadership with caring for the needs of God’s people (Acts 6). In keeping with this ancient tradition, our Care Team is comprised of spiritually-mature Deacons who have been elected by our church to serve as the hands of Jesus to people just like you.
Allow us to come alongside you and lift up your needs to our Heavenly Father. Our Deacons will collectively and individually pray for your particular need and also are available after service for one-on-one prayer.
Please contact us if would like a Deacon to visit you - after church, at your home or in a medical facility.
Facing Changes or the Unexpected
If you are at a loss as to how to manage a current spiritual, emotional, or financial crisis or challenge, please know that we want to help you make it through. We will walk alongside folks who need help carrying their burden and provide practical support as we are able and the Lord leads. Our work includes setting up Meal Trains (for families with new babies, for those recuperating from medical procedures, etc.), providing temporary emergency financial assistance on a case-by-case basis, assisting those unable to physically manage the day-to-day, and guiding through the process of bereavement.
Please let us know your need:
- Call 617-479-5728 to leave a confidential message.
- Email firstname.lastname@example.org or reach out to one of our deacons directly
A native New Englander and a cancer survivor, Cindy oversees the work of our Care Team. She has an MDiv from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, is ordained in the Evangelical Covenant Church and is a certified spiritual director. Eager to communicate biblical truth to people less comfortable with being preached “to,” Cindy is experimenting with the "dialogical" style of preaching which invites people to preach “with” her. She is married to Glen and they are grateful to be parents of three children.
