Caring Ministry at New Providence Presbyterian Church

The Pastoral Care Ministry of our church has one goal for our members – to “Connect the Congregation to Christ through Care.” In addition to caring for our members, we offer various ministries that reach into the community including a senior’s fellowship group called Four Seasons Fellowship, a prayer shawl ministry, a Wholeness Service and Bearing Grief support group.

Members and Regular Attendees

We have over 30 ordained Deacons who care for our members. Every member belongs to a specific flock and is cared for by a Deacon who prays for each of their flock members, identifies needs within it and determines how best to meet these needs. Our Deacons and Minister of Congregational Care also help with:

  • Meals
  • Hospital & shut-in visitation
  • Financial Advise and Support
  • Pre-marital counseling
  • Short-term spiritual counseling & prayer
  • Transportation & shopping services
  • Deacon Flock Ministry
  • Emergency Prayer Chain
  • Grief Support
  • Memorial Receptions
  • National Day of Prayer
  • Thanksgiving Baskets
  • Yarns of Hope
  • Christmas Gifting


Bearing Grief

New session will run February 6 - March 20, 2023 on Mondays at 7:00PM in the Wenman Room

It may be hard for you to feel optimistic about the future right now. If you’ve lost a spouse, child, family member or friend, you’ve probably found that there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel. Being a part of Bearing Grief can help. Bearing Grief is a Christian based ministry created for those in the church and community who are grieving losses. Each session includes a video featuring top experts on grief and recovery subjects, plus real-life stories. You will have the chance to interact with others who have experienced recent loss and have an opportunity to share your own to the degree you would like. For further information, please contact Janet Essig at 908-665-0050.
