We do not deny the body,
nor do we deny the mind.
What we do is affirm the Spirit.
— Ernest Holmes
The Mission of the Heart in Hand Spiritual Care Ministry is to bring a presence and message of love to congregants and their loved ones during times of health challenges, transition, and grieving.
If you or a loved one would like spiritual support during a time of health challenge, please contact us. We are happy to visit you in person, or speak with you over the phone, to provide loving listening and prayer (spiritual mind treatment). Your requests and conversations are held in sacred confidentiality among the members of our Ministry.
Call and leave a message at 707-546-4543, ext. 370. We check this voice mail box at least twice daily. Or visit the Heart in Hand table in the Social Hall on Sunday morning to put a written request in the box.
Grief Support Group
Heart in Hand also provides a facilitated Grief Support Group each Sunday at 12:45 pm at the Center. Please feel welcomed to attend this group when you have been touched by transition. We will listen lovingly, respectfully, and tenderly.
Who We Are
Approximately 25 congregants serve in the Heart in Hand Spiritual Support Ministry. All Ministry members have taken Foundations or Beyond Limits and a Heart in Hand training. Rev. Joyce Duffala and the Ministry’s Core Team—Antonia Albany; Lois Clark, RScP; Georgett Eggel; Betty Garcia, RScP; Mo Gerecke, RScP; and Sue Robson—ensure that all requests receive confidential loving attention from Ministry members.
To Serve in this Ministry
If you have already taken Foundations or Beyond Limits, please stop by the Heart in Hand table in the Social Hall on Sunday to find out about the next semi-annual Heart in Hand training. The next training will be offered on Saturday, June 1, from 9:30 to noon. To register, call Betty Garcia, 707-528-1818.
