Community Care

Sometimes life becomes difficult. We all experience times of sorrow, grief, great successes and turnarounds, confusion, transition or illness. During these challenging times members of the Ainsworth community can be supportive by holding one another in caring companionship and prayer. A significant element of Pastoral care at Ainsworth is the informal way in which parishioners care for one another offering listening ears, loving hearts and the willingness simply to be present to one another at times of joy and sorrow.

Parishioners needing a visit from Pastor Lynne during times of challenge can contact the Ainsworth office, (503) 284-8767. Pastor Lynne or a member of the Called to Care team of lay visitors is available for visiting during crisis and in situations where on-going visitation is requested.

Grief Ministry

Under the leadership of the Rev. Sylvia Eagan, Wendy Del Mar and Peggy West, Ainsworth offers periodic grief groups for parishioners. For more information about the next group please contact the Ainsworth office.
