Heart in Hand Spiritual Care

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 during times of health challenges, transition, and grieving.

If you 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.
