Congregational Care

"You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength [...] You shall love your neighbor as yourself. There is no other commandment greater than these."   -Mark 12

At The OMH, we believe ourselves called to serve others and love our neighbors with all our strength.   The Circle of Care is a group of volunteers who provide direct service—things like rides, meals, cards and flowers– to folks in our community in times of need.  To request support, email

Our Prayer Chain prays for concerns raised in Sunday worship, noted more privately on pew pads, or shared by contacting Prayer Chain administrator, Kim Sturgis. 

Our Congregational Care Ministers are lay ministers who work alongside our pastors to provide spiritual care for our church family.  If you or someone you know is in need of support, you can click here to let us know, or email  You can also contact any of our Congregational Care Ministers (below) directly.

Who are the Congregational Care Ministers (CCMs) at
The Old Meeting House?

1. CCMs are volunteers who work alongside our Pastors to provide spiritual care to our church community.
2. CCMs are trained in pastoral methods and techniques to provide support to people going through some of life’s more challenging times—including (but not limited to) grief, divorce, loss, chronic, or terminal illness.
3. CCMs are people within our community who feel called by God in a deeper way to accompany others, by deepening relationships and offering a compassionate, prayerful, and listening presence.
4. CCMs have made a commitment to provide care that is sustained, trained, and confidential.
5. CCMs receive regular training and support, so they are able to provide the resources, tools and continued support needed to begin an individual’s own process of spiritual connection and healing.

Our Congregational Care Ministers serve as an extension of our Pastors’ own pastoral presence.
If you, or someone you know, is in need of some support at this time, please contact us at
We have been called to love and serve our
neighbors—that means YOU.
