Care & Prayer

Caring Ministries

We are called not only to love God, but to express that love by caring for others. When we pray for each other, bear one another’s burdens, spend time together, and walk with each other through the events of life, we demonstrate God’s love to the world. Here are some of the ways Foundry is committed to caring for people’s needs.

Hospitalizations

Know a Foundry member who is in the hospital? Let us know.

Stephen Ministry

We all go through times in our lives when things are tough. Stephen Ministers work alongside Foundry pastors to provide spiritual direction to anyone facing a crisis. They are trained caregivers, ready to listen, care for and encourage you, pray with and for you, and provide one-on-one Christian care to help you through whatever you’re facing. Participation is free and confidential.

Employment Assistance Ministries

The Employment Assistance Ministry (TEAM) exists to encourage and support individuals seeking employment. Our ministry is community-wide and not limited to Foundry members.

We serve unemployed or underemployed individuals by:

We will meet in the Parlor of the Jones Road Campus on:

Caregiver Support

There are many kinds of caregivers. Some care for their spouses or special needs children. Others look after aging parents. Whether you are a full-time, part-time or intermittent caregiver, let us connect you with other caregivers and resources that will make your life easier and make the journey more rewarding and less overwhelming.

We meet on the first Monday of every month from 6:00 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. in the Parlor of the Jones Road Campus to provide support for those trying to balance the demands of their own lives while caring for a loved one. There will be no meeting in July.

Shepherd Care

Shepherd Care is a mission of encouragement and companionship to shut-in members and friends of the Foundry family. Armed with prayer, kind words, attentive ears and a willingness to reach out to others, Shepherds make a real difference in lives. Each shut-in individual is paired with a Shepherd who commits to contact them on a regular basis.
