Care Ministry

Care Ministries show the love of Jesus by serving the needs of those in our community who are suffering from the challenges of the broken world in which we live. It is our desire to offer care in ways that touch hurting lives, to encourage them in love to deepen their relationship with God and others.

Support Groups

We want to connect you to people that can come alongside you, support you, and comfort you during some of life’s most trying obstacles. We offer support groups for:
  • Cancer & Cancer Care (DoubleHope)
    • We have 2 meetings each month: the 2nd Monday of each month from 11:45am-1:00pm and the 2nd Tuesday of each month from 7:00pm - 8:00pm. Double Hope encourages and supports those affected by cancer, helping to navigate their paths with hope and strength from a faith-based perspective. We welcome cancer patients, survivors, and caregivers. If you know anyone preparing for or going through cancer treatment, please invite him or her to attend. The name Double Hope signifies the hope that we will be healed of cancer as well as the hope of eternal life in Jesus Christ. “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” Romans 15:14. We will be meeting via Zoom until it is safe for those with a compromised immune system to gather in person again.

Stephen Ministry

Church of the Saviour is one of nearly 13,000 Stephen Ministry congregations across the world. Trained, supported and supervised Stephen Ministers are paired with same-gender individuals experiencing life’s transitions and difficulties. The role of the Stephen Minister is to hold on to hope and faith when life makes that hard, to stand in the gap when loss, crisis, pain and just the everyday “stuff” of life shakes someone’s faith. Stephen Ministry holds fast to the truth that “We are the caregivers and Jesus is the cure-giver.”
If you are experiencing one of life’s many transitions (loss of a job, new baby, moving, beginning college, becoming an empty-nester, loss of a spouse, divorce, new job, illness, newly married…etc.) send us an email and a Stephen Leader will contact you with more information about being paired with a Stephen Minister.
If you’re interested in becoming a Stephen Minister, please contact stephenministry@coswayne.org

Counseling

We would love to connect you to a local Christian counselor to help you talk through tough times. Contact the Care Center so that we can put you in touch with available counselors.  

Meals Ministry 

We want to be a blessing to those in a time of need! If you know someone who could benefit from a home-cooked meal during a time of hardship or adjustment, or need help in the organization of meals for someone in your class or group, please contact us. This ministry is available to those inside and outside of Church of the Saviour 

Love-In-Action

Church of the Saviour's Love-in-Action Ministry is funded by the generous gifts of the congregation. As servants and administrators of this ministry, deacons and deaconesses seek to show God’s love by assisting members and attenders at Church of the Saviour by providing practical help, short-term financial support and connections to various Christian and/or community resources. Members of the board are mature men and women dedicated to the principles of the New Testament establishment of deacons.
Contact with the Love-in-Action board should be made by calling the compassion line on 610.688.6338 ext.240, which is monitored daily by a deacon or deaconess.  Please leave your name and number and your call will be returned promptly.
