WHAT DO I DO IF...

The Chapel cares about you! Our Lay Pastor Assistant Team wants to be there for you when you need us. We’re here to support and help you through life’s most difficult times and celebrate the joyful seasons with you.

If you have any of the needs below, please contact Lay Pastor Assistant Team leaders, Jim and Colleen LaValle at 315-699-4140.

You're getting married. We will assist you in getting the plans in motion for your big day.

You’ve just had a baby. We would like to help you celebrate your new arrival by announcing it in the “Family Corner” of the bulletin. We will also assist you in scheduling your baby to be dedicated at a
weekend service.

You're facing a financial crisis or having a financial problem. Depending on your need, you will be connected to a financial class or financial counseling will be arranged. We can also help with immediate food needs.

A family member dies. In response to your call, we will let the pastors, elders, staff and intercessors in the church know of your loss so we can pray for you. One of the Lay Pastor Assistants will call you, and we’ll assist with the funeral details if you’d like. We will also be sure that the Chapel family knows to pray for you by placing an announcement in the “Family Corner” of the bulletin.

An accident or serious illness occurs in your immediate family. We will immediately begin to pray for you by letting the pastors, elders, staff and intercessors know of your need. If they would be receptive, a Lay Pastor Assistant will visit your family member. When possible, meals may also be arranged for a short time.

You're in the hospital. The Prayer Chain will be activated with the pastors, elders, staff and intercessors praying for you. A Lay Pastor Assistant will visit you in the hospital and pray with you. Help with meals may be provided for a limited time when possible.

You're facing a personal, marriage or family crisis. We will direct you to the ministry that is equipped to meet your need. You may also have your concern put on the prayer list if you’d like.

You have a prayer need. Your prayer request will be placed on a list that will go to the pastors, elders, staff and intercessors of the Chapel. Prayer requests can also be emailed directly to the Chapel.
