No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.
1 John 4:12
At Zion, part of our Mission Statement is to serve those in need. While those needs vary greatly, sometimes lasting for a moment, sometimes lingering; we want you to know about a resource here at Zion for helping you through challenging times: the Congregational Care Team. Working together we’ll figure out the best way to come alongside you to best meet your needs. Please contact Jill Davis or leave a message with someone in the church office. All information shared is kept confidential.
One of the forms of Caregiver Support offered at Faith in Action is professional caregiver coaching. The coaches work one on one with caregivers and their loved ones through in-home visits, providing care-planning services, support and encouragement, as well as individualized education, resources and referrals.
Contact Faith in Action’s Becker office at 763.263.4277 for more information.
