Pastoral Care Department
The objective is to provide holistic care to all church members. Apart from Spiritual need, church member do have many other needs – emotional, physical and intellectual well being. It’s an avenue for the church to offer help and care to the church members in a practical way, hence the church can take care of its members effectively. It complements the spiritual care offered by the pastoral team.
Why do we need to care for the church members?
- It’s part of making disciples.
Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. (Matt. 28:19-20)
- It’s a way to show love.
Love your neighbour as yourself. (Matt. 22:39) — My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. (Jn. 15:12-13) — Serve one another in love. (Gal. 5:13)
- It’s what body life is all about.
If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honoured, every part rejoices with it. (1 Cor. 12:26) — Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. (Rom. 12:15) — Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ. (Gal. 6:2)
- It’s a reflection of the character of our Lord Jesus.
For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many. (Mk. 10:45) — Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others. Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus. (Phil. 2:4-5)
