What We Do

Care Ministries focus on supporting and assisting members of congregations/constituents, clergy and their communities with activities that relate to health education, prevention, and wellness. The overall goal is to find balance among all the dimensions that comprise wellness: emotional, spiritual, physical, mental, and social.

Care Ministries does not have one single formula as to how it functions. There is some commonality in the services that are typically provided. These include, but are not limited to: prayer and healing; hospital and home visitation; health education, screenings, and fairs; advocacy; mental health awareness and education; and interventions.

Care Ministries has a focus on collaboration and networking with others connected to similar interests, with a deep concern for and commitment to something greater than self. Care Ministries is made up of individuals who are motivated by strong beliefs, principles, ethics, and values with the desire to serve others with altruism and compassion grounded in faith.

Care Ministries DOES NOT provide medical care, diagnostic screenings, home health care or any service/procedure that is invasive or falls within the scope of the practice of a licensed health professional.

St. Paul's Care Ministries is always looking for volunteers with a passion for helping others. If you feel this may be your calling or spiritual gift, please contact Renae Schunk at or 814-237-2163 ext. 152.
