Did you know that federal law greatly restricts the disclosure of patient information by hospitals? As a result, the pastor and church office may not know that a member of the church has been admitted to the hospital. If you are hospitalized and would like to notify the pastor, it is important that you (or a family member or friend) inform the church office as soon as possible, because we rely on you to let us know so that we can offer pastoral care and support! We would rather five people let us know rather than no one at all! Thank you for your help as we all join together to minister to the needs of our congregation!
Please notify the church if you have any changes such as: email addresses, name change, physical or mailing addresses or phone numbers. Email us or call the office at 904-396-0567.
