Pillars of Care
Helping our Congregation Identify Who is Responsible in Care Situations
We can't put or project our own baggage on other people and expect a healthy community.
Taking personal responsibility for care is when you take the necessary steps to sort through your own emotional, spiritual, and physical triggers. A good example of this would be going to counselling.
This is doing life together and being there for one another.
It's noticing things going on in each others' lives, being authentic and honest about them, but not necessarily solving problems or trying to have all the answers. Connect Groups are C4's primary delivery system for this pillar.
There are things that happen in life that are above the "pay grade" of a Connect Group (shared responsibility).
These situations may require some professional intervention with our trained group of volunteers. There are people in our church equipped to handle these situations.
