Congregational Care

People Matter

Our dedicated Congregational Care pastors, staff and volunteers work to meet the spiritual, emotional, physical, and relational needs of our Mt. Horeb community. We provide support, care and prayer for the needs of families and individuals going through various stages of life. There are several ways to have congregational care come alongside you or your loved one - from hospital and homebound visits to care and support group.

Stephen Ministry

Stephen Ministry equips its members to provide confidential, one-to-one Christian care to individuals in our congregation and community experiencing difficulties in their lives. Stephen Ministers are members of the congregation with the gift of caregiving and are carefully selected to walk beside hurting individuals. If you would like to be a Stephen Minister or are going through some issue in life and need a Stephen Minister, please contact Emma Murphy.


GriefShare is a friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences. You don’t have to go through the grieving process alone. GriefShare meets on Tuesdays from 6:30-8:30 PM in the Chapel. For more information, contact Lynn Ullman at (803) 271-3904.



Whether newly separated or divorced for years, DivorceCare is a friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences. DivorceCare meets on Wednesdays from 6:00-8:00 PM in Room 547. For more information, contact Doreen Michaels at (414) 477-9120.

Cancer Support

Cancer can be an overwhelming diagnosis, but you don’t have to go through it alone; share the burden with the help of others who have faced the same challenges. This group meets for spiritual, educational, emotional and social support on the first and third Tuesday of each month. Currently meeting virtual in this season.


Caregivers Support Group

Designed for those who are caring for a loved one, this support group will provide important opportunities to meet with others who understand what you are going through and can provide emotional support in a safe and non-judgmental environment. Strategies for self-care will be promoted and industry guest speakers will be invited to help with additional support resources. We meet Tuesdays, 10:00-11:30 AM in Room 405.
