Care at Arborlawn
"A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”
At Arborlawn United Methodist Church, we strive to provide the highest level of care and love to our members, guests, and the greater community. Our Congregational Care Ministries offer support for all aspects of life from baptism to end-of life care. Some of the many support services that we offer include baptisms, weddings, funerals, financial assistance, support groups, hospital visits and prayer, and support from Congregational Care Ministers.
For more information or assistance, contact the Pastor of Congregational Care, Rev. Joy Dister-Dominguez, 817-731-0701, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Congregational Care Ministers
We strive to do ministry with excellence. With a church of our size, we rely on Congregational Care Ministers (CCMs) who are lay volunteers specifically trained to serve alongside our pastors and staff, making hospital visits, homebound visits, praying, listening, and providing one-on-one comfort and encouragement to our congregation. The ministry of Congregational Care is designed to connect the church with people during their difficult times. Congregational Care Ministers (CCMs) are called by God and equipped by the church to care for people, working alongside the pastors, to meet the care needs of our church family. If you would like to receive care from a Congregational Care Minister, contact Rev. Joy Dister-Dominguez at (817) 731-0701 or email@example.com. You can also fill out and turn in a “Prayer and Care Request Card” on Sunday mornings.

Do you feel called to be a Congregational Care Minister?
Do you have empathy, love, and concern for others? Are you being called by God to care for those in our congregation and community? Consider being a CCM and minister to those in need. You are matched according to your gifts and passions with those in need. CCMs can make hospital visits, visit homebound and nursing home members, telephone persons in need of contact, meet one-on-one with persons needing a listening ear for prayer and encouragement, offer support to grieving families and proactively seek to encourage and care for persons within their pastorate. This partnership between lay and clergy will enable us to provide another level of care to our church family. Congregational Care Ministers will meet regularly as a team with a Pastor for supervision and assignments.If you are interested in being a Congregational Care Minister, review the list of requirements, and complete and return this application to the church office or e-mail application to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
