Pastoral Care

If you’re walking through a difficult season, navigating a challenging relationship, or experiencing a crisis, we want to come alongside you. We’re here to listen and pray with you, as well as provide trusted resources, connect you with other ministry partners and offer support communities that meet weekly.

You’ll find more information below to help you identify some possible next steps, whether you’re needing practical assistance, a counseling referral, prayer, or information about planning a wedding or a funeral. If you can’t find what you’re needing, please email care@churchofthecity.com or call the main line 615-465-5000 and ask to speak with the pastoral care team. 

Receive Care

We want to walk with you through whatever you are facing. Whether you are experiencing a significant life event (loss of a loved one, illness, transition), need practical assistance or referrals for counseling or other community resources, we want to come alongside you as best we can. Please complete the form below to help us connect you to the best person to respond to your needs.

Prayer

If you have a prayer request, please let us know. Throughout the week, members of our staff & prayer team stand ready to lift up your prayer request to God. It would be an honor to pray for you and with you.

Support Communities

We recognize that we all face seasons of struggle, pain, and uncertainty in life where it is helpful to walk with others. Support Communities offer space to be reminded that we are not alone and there is a greater hope we can cling to in the midst of our uncertainty.

Wrap Around

COTC has answered the call to care, found in James 1:27, by wrapping around families through support communities and special events for our foster and adoptive families, by providing clothing and essential items through our Wrap Around Closet, and through WRAP Teams that serve and encourage individual foster and adoptive families.

Weddings

If you are looking for a pastor to officiate your wedding or are wanting to invest in developing a strong foundation for a lasting marriage through premarital mentoring, we would love to help you walk through these next steps.

Serve

There are a variety of ways to serve within pastoral care. Please email care@churchofthecity.com to learn more about current opportunities.
