Congregational Care

Your church family wants to know when you have a life event! Please call the office at 817-431-1332 and let us know if you or a loved one are hospitalized, or if there has been a birth, death or wedding in your family. If you are in need of pastoral care, please let us know as well and a minister will respond. If you would like a home visit or Communion, contact Jim Chandler.

KUMC offers a variety of supportive programs to provide comfort, guidance and prayer. Contact the Congregational Care Team for more information on any of the programs listed!

Alzheimer's Support Group

This group provides a caring and understanding environment for you to learn more about Alzheimer’s disease and other related dementias, to share your feelings and experiences, and to equip you with knowledge about available resources.  The ongoing support of this group will help you to cope with the challenges of this disease and remind you that you are not alone. Caregivers or adult children of individuals with Alzheimer’s or other dementia conditions meet on the second Sunday of each month from 2-3:30 pm in the Discipleship Administration Center Room 417. For more information, contact Bernadette Bierley, (817) 581-7461 or Paulette Olson, (817) 788-2936.


Bereavement and Recovery Meals

Teams deliver meals by request to those persons who have experienced a death in the family or hospitalization. Contact Pastor Lauren Christenberry for more information.


Cancer Support Group

A caring community for those have fought or are currently fighting cancer, and for those who provide care and support, meets on the second Monday of each month, 6:30-7:30pm in DAC 413. If you would like more information, contact Page Hines.


College Care Packages

Notes, gift cards and treats are sent to our college students during fall and spring finals to encourage them and keep them connected to their home church. If you are interested in "adopting" a college student or you have a college student you'd like to be added to our list, please contact Sheila Shaw or Kim Kuhlman. 


Counseling

Pastoral care is offered, and referrals are available. Call the church office to speak with one of our pastors at 817-431-1332.


Extending the Table

Each month our Caring Hearts team visits with and offers Communion to our neighbors at Evergreen, Heritage House and Brookdale Senior Living residences. As many of these folks are unable to attend our worship services, yet desire to participate in the sacrament, we believe this is a meaningful and needed area of ministry. Communion is offered the second Tuesday of each month, providing a wonderful opportunity to share and experience Christ's love with our neighbors. If you would like to participate or have additional questions, please contact Victoria Wilson.


Faith Community Nursing

Faith Community Nursing is a health and wellness ministry of professional nurses that helps educate congregants on the relationship between spirituality and wellness while providing resources to help keep them well. They are available at specific times for blood pressure checks, health questions, education, guidance, referral and prayer. For more information, contact Jackie Kiebler.


Grief and Healing Series

Are you grieving over the loss of someone you love? Do you wonder if what you're feeling is normal grief or if it is wrong to feel that way? Come join us to learn truths and myths about grief while experiencing the healing that being able to discuss this in a safe setting can bring. For more information, contact Jim Chandler.


Prayer Covering Ministry

Members of our congregation create baby blankets for families celebrating newborns as well as quilts and shawls that are given to those going through difficult times such as grief or illness. Monthly meetings are on the fourth Monday of each month in DAC 414, at 9:30am ending at 12:30pm. Bring your own project you are working on, including sewing machine, knit or crochet. Knitted, crocheted, and quilted coverings are brought to the meetings and are prayed over.  These are then given out as needed by the pastors to comfort and encourage the recipients.  You do not have to make a covering to be part of this ministry.  Come join us for fellowship and prayer. Contact Paula Burda or Sarah Colvin for more information. 


Stephen Ministry

In difficult times, we often need a person in whom we can confide, someone who will listen, someone who will care, someone who will help. Stephen Ministers want to support you and be there for you. If you are in need of this type of ministry or you think you could be helpful to others as a Stephen Minister, contact Page Hines. Find out more about Stephen Ministry at Keller UMC.
