We are excited for Care Night to return on Tuesday & Wednesday evenings this Fall.
Care Night begins with an important introduction night on Sep 22 and classes begin September 29.
What is Care Night?
Care Night offers a place where we can all come, just as we are, to find comfort and rest in the presence of those around us who walk beside us. Offered regularly throughout the year, Care Night is a safe place to come together and be fed, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Through gifts of food, worship, and guidance, you too can begin the journey toward healing, and know that you are not alone. Everyone is welcome!
What Others Are Saying About Care Night
“I came to Care Night by invitation, not quite sure what to expect. I found it so comforting to share and to listen to others in similar situations. I left feeling I wasn’t alone.”
“Care night is a time to reflect, cry, move forward with new friends. Each one of us have our own story and pain.“
“Care night was a safe place where folks like me with broken wings could gather without fear of judgment and experience the love of Christ in a very real and Direct – hands on way”
Part of the way our Providence Care Team serves our church and community is through Care Visits. We consider it a privilege to visit you or a loved one. Once a request is received, a member of our team will be assigned to this visit. We ask that you allow up to seven (7) days for visits to be made unless otherwise requested.

You may find yourself caring for a spouse, parent, child, another family member, or friend. It’s an honor to care for those you love but sometimes you need care, too. As a caregiver, you need to connect and share with those who understand the joys and challenges that can make you feel as if you’re on a rollercoaster. Join us on the third Wednesday of each month from 8:30-9:30 am in the Providence Church Training Room. Each month we will have a different topic that will inform, assist, and support those in caregiving roles.
“There are only four kinds of people in the world.
Those who have been caregivers.
Those who are currently caregivers.
Those who will be caregivers, and those who will need a caregiver.”
― Rosalyn Carter

Caring Hands Prayer Shawl Ministry
What is a prayer shawl? Can you touch a prayer? Can you pull it close and feel it’s comfort? You can if it comes as a gift in the form of a prayer shawl. Prayer shawls are a powerful reminder of God’s love and care. The shawls are given to people in the Providence Church community and beyond who are dealing with loss, illness, or other difficulties. They are made by hand and prayed over throughout the entire process, beginning with the first stitch to the moment they are given to their recipient.

One way the church has always taken care of each other is through gifts of food. The Meal Care Team serves those who are recovering from surgery, undergoing a health or family crisis, or welcoming a new baby to their family. This team also provides snacks to our area hospital ICU and surgery waiting areas.
