How to Arrange for Special Pastoral Care
Pastor Paul and your elders are there when you need them – but sometimes you have to tell them of the need! While Pastor Paul is always available, please be conscientious that he has a family too, and we want to support him in caring and being there for them as well! If you have a pastoral care emergency, Pastor wants to be called! However, if it is not and it can wait until the next day, please send him an e-mail at email@example.com or call/text him in-between his office hours of 9AM-3PM. He will attempt to get back to you as soon as possible or contact your elder for you depending on the need. If you have not heard back in 24 hours follow up. At Prince of Peace, we are often asked at times, “when should I contact my pastor or elder?” Here is general list of times in life you should especially give us a call, text, or email.
When death seems near
(DON’T WAIT!!! PLEASE CALL IMMEDIATELY!!! PLEASE CALL THE CHURCH THEN CALL PASTOR PAUL/YOUR ELDER)
Let us know where you are and when we can come see you. There are a lot of hospitals in the area as well as nursing/physical rehab centers throughout the Puget Sound! DON’T assume someone will tell us or that we will find out where you are! Usually we are the last ones to know because everyone assumes we know!
If you are homebound and need/want a visit or have not received one, PLEASE call and set up an appointment with the church! Our phone number is 253-584-2565.
