CareNotes: A Resource for You


What do you say to a friend who has cancer? How do you talk with a child about death? How can you support a friend with depression? “CareNotes” pamphlets address these questions and more. Each pamphlet provides basic information that may help address a specific topic, like hospice, grief, or caregiving for a parent. A selection of pamphlets are conveniently located in several places throughout the building. If traveling to the building is not a possibility for you, contact Pastor Megan to learn how we can connect you with these resources,  Pastor Megan Walther

Let us Know What’s Happening in Your Life


Please let us know when major events happen in your life, so that we can be in prayer and offer support. Whether you are scheduling a surgery, welcoming a new baby, or mourning the loss of a loved one, please tell the church! Share your news by calling the church office, submitting a prayer request, or by contacting the clergy directly. Contact | Pastor Megan Walther

If You Want a Visit, Please Tell Us!


Throughout COVID, clergy and Congregational Care Ministers have not been able to make visits. Even now, many hospitals and nursing homes are restricting visitation, and we understand that family and friends will often occupy available visitor spots. Visitation policies in these facilities may continue to shift throughout the fall, and we know that different families have different comfort levels and different needs. Given the unusual times, it’s helpful to hear what is most meaningful for you and your family. If you are in a hospital or care facility and would like a visit, please tell us. If you’d like to receive a visit call the church office, submit a prayer request, or contact the clergy directly. Contact | Pastor Megan Walther

Share a Prayer Shawl


Do you know someone who is going through a difficult time, or who could use a bit of extra love and support? Consider taking them a prayer shawl, knit by a volunteer from Clarkston UMC. Prayer shawls are located near the parlor. Please check the list to see if the person to whom you’d like to give a shawl has received one already. Contact | Pastor Megan Walther
