I was in need...you came to visit me." - Matt.
I was in need" - It's just a single phrase from a
single verse, yet it so perfectly describes what the Chaplaincy Ministry
for Health Care Centers is all about.
a person suddenly finds themselves a resident of a health care
center, life is undeniably different. And, although the center may
provide excellent patient care, an even greater need can go
untreated - the need to be fed, comforted and strengthened by God's Word. This spiritual
care is beyond the normal scope of the health care center. In fact, it's
beyond the scope of most churches too. You see, churches are built on the
model of Christians coming to them for spiritual nourishment and
strengthening. But what if you are no longer able to go to
church? What happens then?
is in these times, times that are perhaps the most challenging and
frightening of a person's life, that the Chaplaincy Ministry is there
providing comfort, hope and reassurance.
