Pastoral Care

Pastoral Care is a ministry of presence, responding to God’s love, founded on faith and prayer, focusing on the other person through active listening, shared with and accountable to a community of caregivers.

Those who attend BFCRC are encouraged to contact the Pastoral Care team if you feel the need of this "listening ear".  Also, if you know of someone who could benefit from a visit from the pastoral care team please contact Anna Berghout
