Marshall Presbyterian Church offers emergency pastoral care and care from members of our session.
Emergency pastoral care
Examples of emergencies include death, illness (including hospital visit requests), marital crises, domestic violence, child abuse or other personal crises.
What is the Session?
The session, a group of men and women nominated and elected into the office by the Marshall Presbyterian Church members, works to express in practical ways Christ's command to all believers to love our neighbor as ourselves. We offer help to those in crisis or challenging situations by assessing their needs and working together to find solutions.
Called elders, these members are responsible for teaching the Gospel, administering healing prayer, and overseeing the church, as well as extending mercy and compassion. Our purpose is to show God's love to those in difficult circumstances by working together with them to resolve their struggles. We aim to be facilitators of the work God is doing in their lives.
Depending on the circumstances, we may provide social, emotional and physical, as well as financial support. We also strive to link individuals to the broader Christian community, in the hopes that they will feel Christ's love long beyond their experience seeking help (Deuteronomy 15:7-11; James 2:12-16; Acts 2:44,45).
