Pastoral Care & Request a Pastoral Visit

If you would like a visit from a pastor or are hospitalized, please contact the church office to let us know!  If it is after hours, the church office number becomes an After Hours Pastoral Care Hotline.

Stephen Ministry

Are you struggling through a difficult time in life? Experiencing grief, divorce, job loss, chronic or terminal illness, or some other life crisis?  Stephen Ministers are congregation members trained by Stephen Leaders to offer high-quality, one-to-one Christian care to people going through tough times. A Stephen Minister comes alongside a hurting person and meets with that person on a weekly basis to listen, care, encourage, pray, and provide emotional and spiritual support. If you are in need or interesting in this kind of support, please contact Nancy Schuerman.  You can also visit our Stephen Ministry page for more information.

Lay Visiting Ministry

Lay visiting volunteers extend the love of Christ to our home-bound church members through calls and visits.  Working together with our pastors, our goal is to help people stay connected to their church and know that we care for them in Christ’s name. Anyone with love for God and a gift for caring for others are welcome to join us! Leader: Lynn Ryan, lcgray46@yahoo.com, 248-924-0842

Join the Email Prayer Chain Team

Our Church’s email prayer chain is an opportunity for us to support others in our congregation and community by sharing love, hope and faith in God through prayer. Leader: Faith McClory, prayers@fumcnorthville.org

Prayer Shawl Ministry

Prayer Shawls are given to people who are in need of a warm embracing hug and need to feel the love of God wrapped around them.  Faith and love is in each stitch made from beginning to end.  These shawls are made from “Home Spun” yarn and are made from members and friends of the church. Leader: Norma Maxim, normamaxim@hotmail.com If you are interested in making/donating a prayer shawl, you can contact Norma or just place your finished shawl on a hanger in our prayer shawl corner opposite Rev. Woolley’s office in the main corridor between Fellowship Hall and the elevator to the second floor.
