Prayer and Crisis Care Ministry


The Care Ministry at Nativity continuously monitors and updates the Prayer List each week. This list guides our care for our members in need throughout the week, whether they are in need of conversation, visitation, a meal, or pastoral guidance.  Our Care Ministry is headed by Pastor Gregg Hoffman, who coordinates the teams of ministers and participates in their work. If you have any questions about the Care Ministry, or if you would like to lend your gifts to one or more of these ministries, please contact Pastor Gregg, or call the church office at 828-684-0352. 

  • Card Ministry - members of this ministry make homemade cards once a month to send to those on the prayer list, as well as visitors.

  • Grief Support - members of this ministry provide resources and support (one-on-one or group) by walking with people on their grief journey. Members share in their pain, as well as their hope in the resurrection Christ offers us all. 

  • Prayer Team - members of this ministry are committed to be people of prayer, lifting the concerns of others to God. These faithful sisters and brothers in Christ are devoted to their relationship with God and they serve as powerful expressions of the spiritual life of our congregation. 

  • Prayer Shawl Ministry - members of this ministry knit or crochet prayer shawls in many styles and patterns, praying for the recipients of the shawls as they do their holy work. We pray over the prayer shawls in worship periodically, uniting our prayers with those of those who made them, that all who receive a prayer shawl would feel the love from their church family. This ministry meets monthly.
