Fredericksburg UMC is a caring community of people who love God and all those made in God’s image. We embrace those who are hurting, and we walk with those who are in crisis as well as those who simply need a friend. We don’t have all the answers, and we don’t have it all together, but we attempt to live and love like Jesus. Like Jesus we recognize that we are all lost until someone finds us and calls us by name.
Life and its stress tends to make us forget that we are children of God, and that we are lovely and loved. When you’re struggling to make it through the day; you’re overcome by shame; you’re tired of putting on a face and faking it; when you haven’t laughed in far too long and you can’t keep going, please reach out. Our team of caring individuals is here to remind you that you are precious and beloved – that your name is written on the palm of the Creator of the Universe.
Walking alongside you through your pain – in whatever form it takes – is our honor and privilege. Pastoral care is about sharing life together and growing through the experience. Fredericksburg UMC seeks to show the love of Jesus Christ through spiritual, emotional and physical support.
Who needs pastoral care?
- The one wrestling with an overburdened underbalanced life load
- The one in pain – physical, spiritual or emotional
- The one who is lonely and without a support network
- The grieving
- The confused
- The forgotten
- The one whose family has fallen apart
- The exploited and abused
- The one who is lost

He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us. – 2 Cor. 1:4
