Care & Support

We have a variety of programs designed to provide care to the folks who call Burnt Store Presbyterian Church their church home. The programs range from fun and fellowship to pastoral care and health issues.

Deacons

Our very active Board of Deacons totally devotes its time and energy to pastoral care. Each of our 27 deacons has a portion of the congregation for which he or she is responsible. This responsibility is to keep a finger on the pulse of each family, assist them as needed (and as the deacon is able) and to report information to the pastoral staff in order for them to respond. While this Shepherding Program is the mainstay of the Board, it is also involved in chancel flower delivery, transportation for sick and shut-ins and food delivery for the sick, shut-in or recently bereaved.

Stephen Ministry

Burnt Store Presbyterian Church is a Stephen Ministry church with many members trained to provide one-to-one Christian care to people going through difficult times.

GriefShare

Burnt Store Presbyterian Church invites participants to GriefShare, a Christ based non-denominational program helping people deal with loss. It will begin on October 12th and run for 11 weeks. The group will meet from 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM in room 4 at the church. 

Blood Drive

Burnt Store Presbyterian Church ranks only behind hospitals and schools in blood donations in Charlotte County and is committed to continue to help meet the critical need for blood donations.  Blood transfusions literally save the lives of patients within a couple of days. The turn-around is that fast, the need is constant. The supply of all blood types continually reaches extremely low levels due to high usage. There is always a need for all blood types.  Any person who is eligible to donate and wishes to join one of our Blood Donor Teams is urged to register below.  All donors receive a complementary gift and  a wellness

checkup including blood pressure, temperature, iron count, pulse and cholesterol screening. To learn more about the importance of blood donation visit www.oneblood.org . The upcoming Bloodmobile Drives at BSPC are scheduled on the following dates:
