The Congregational Care Committee serves to supplement the spiritual and physical well being of our church members. The Pastoral Care Team is made up of members who make themselves available for home visits, hospital/nursing home visits, phone call or card ministry participation.  This team works alongside our pastor in meeting the needs of our members.  The Shepherd Program puts members in touch with other members who might be in need of support or assistance.  Care from the Shepherd Program might include welcoming new members, visiting after the birth of a new baby,  providing meals during times of illness or distress, or simply offering a helping hand during a time of need.  The Souper Supper Servers have frozen meals on hand for families who are experiencing those unexpected moments that occur in life.   Our medical loan closet makes medical equipment available to members for ongoing use or during periods of recuperation.  Our transportation program links members in need of rides with other members who offer their time driving people to appointments.

As a whole, the Congregational Care committee works to meet the unique needs experienced by our members, recognizing that we are spiritual, physical and social beings.

The Shepherd Program
"They will answer, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked and sick or in prison, and minister to you?.' Then he will answer them, 'Truly, truly I say to you, as you did it to the least of these, you did it to me.'"

To help foster a caring community at New Hackensack, our church has a Shepherd Program. Our church families are grouped into 15 different Shepherd areas each with Shepherd leaders. People in the Shepherd area are called upon to help meet a families needs when there is a serious illness , a death, a new birth, etc. They might help with cards, calls, meals, a funeral reception, etc. As members of God's family we are able to carry out Jesus' teaching to care for each other in very practical ways.
