Congregational Care

We’re a large church with a big heart. Care for and by the congregation is provided to individuals and families in personal and compassionate ways through hospital visits, support groups for caregivers and the grieving, prayer groups, health and wellness programs, caring memorial services, meals for new parents, visits to those who are home bound and countless interactions that help us sense God’s loving presence and provision.

Our ministers are on call to respond to emergencies. When the church offices are closed, the minister on call can be reached by calling the church number 817.926.6631 and following the prompts.

As we seek to offer our best care we ask that you keep us informed of important moments in your life: a move, a marriage, a graduation, a new baby, a change in family status, a career shift or retirement. Please know that this is a confidential contact

Hospital & Homebound Ministry

When we’ve been informed about a hospital stay, visits are made by our ministers and hospital care team. Visits are also made to those who are unable to attend regularly due to situation or illness. Our Church Friends and care teams share God's love as they listen, serve communion, deliver flowers, make calls and send notes to those who are homebound. Report a hospitalization or homebound status here
