Caring for one another is important and vital at Port Nelson. The realization that we are loved inspires us to love one another. We are blessed. We share this blessing with others in the way we care.

Caring cards

Card Group

Cards are sent to people in the church family who are celebrating significant milestones (e.g., birthdays, anniversaries, graduations), or who are experiencing challenging times (e.g., death of a loved one, illness).

Circle of Friends

Volunteers needed to drive older adults to Wednesday Lunch hosted once a week by Burlington Baptist Church at 11am.  More information is available on our bulletin board.

Flower Delivery

From time to time, flowers are placed in the worship space for Sunday services.  Following the services, individuals deliver the flowers to people in hospital or otherwise experiencing difficulties as a way of caring.

Hospital Visitation

The ministerial staff provide weekly pastoral visits to area hospitals as needed.  These visits can include prayer.

A team of individuals visit people in retirement and long-term care homes who are unable to participate regularly in the life of the church family.

Pew Greeters

A team of individuals watch for those who may be missing from the Sunday worship service, and for those who may be first-time worshippers.

Post-Secondary Student Gifts

Twice a year at exam times, gift cards are lovingly sent to our young people studying at post-secondary schools on behalf of their church family.

Prayer Team

We are a caring team that offers prayers for people who are experiencing health problems or personal crises in a confidential manner.

Prayer Shawl Ministry

Prayer shawls can be given to anyone who could use a warm hug – those in hospital, ill, lonely, bereaved, as well as newly baptized children.  Those making the prayer shawls pray for those who will receive them.


Care of the church family through phone calls to touch base and to offer support and a listening ear.  Everyone is called twice a year, with more frequent calls made as needed.  Under the umbrella of Teleministry are Helping Hands and Prayer Mates.
