Congregational Care Meeting

Life is messy and often painful. None of us can avoid the grief and loss that happens in our lives. What we do to help each other get through difficult times can be complex, yet it can be so simple. The love that we share with one another is an extension and expression of the love that Christ has for us.

We care about each person in our congregation. Chapel Hill’s Congregational Care Ministers help us provide the best and most consistent care we can. Congregational Care Ministers (CCMs) are lay ministers who work alongside their pastors to provide care for their church family. Opportunities to serve may include providing administrative support, praying with those in the hospital or nursing homes, serving home communion, leading worship at care facilities, responding to prayer requests, making phone calls or sending cards.

The leader of the CCM team is Pastor Jen Herndon. Because of the critical nature of this ministry, training is essential for those who serve as CCMs at Chapel Hill. Ministry co-leaders include Pastors Jerry Vogt and Jill Sander-Chali.

You must fill out an application, participate in an interview and be approved to participate in the training for CCMs. Requirements for serving as a CCM and the Application for the training are available. Applications must be submitted to Pastor Jen Herndon ( for consideration.


The mission and focus of the prayer ministry is to pray for all those listed on the prayer list. The prayer team consists of both clergy and laity who are passionate about the positive and healing power of prayer.
