Care & Support

If you find yourself in a crisis of any kind or just need someone to talk with about challenges you are facing in your work, family, or faith, there are a number of ways the Pastoral staff at Grace can assist you. There are also special groups that meet regularly, outlined below.

Pastoral Care (Illness, Hospitalization, Funerals)
If you or someone in your family is facing a significant health challenge and would like a Grace pastor to visit in the hospital, nursing home or any other care facility, please fill out the form, below, or call the church office at 309-693-3641. You can use the Funeral Support form to send us information related to the passing of a loved one.
