Caring Ministry


At SCPC we have a ministry that tries to meet the needs of our city as best we can.  Whether you want to fully jump into a ministry as a leader or just want to be able to help occasionally there is a place for you in caring ministry.

Emergency Assistance Ministries



The Mental Health Ministry hosts workshops, support groups, and special services to support individuals and their loved ones who live with mental illness.  Come and find the support, strength, and hope through the resources provided!  Contact Sally Henry at or Duane Henry at


 J.O.Y. (Just Older Youth) Lunch
: For the older members of our congregation J.O.Y. lunches provide an opportunity to get together and have a meal prepared by Mike Fluchere!  There is live entertainment and lots of laughs for everyone who comes to participate.  For more information, contact:
 Cyndi Martin at or (949) 257-6114



Meals ministry helps when a family needs a helping hand after a tragedy or even a celebration of new life.  This minimal time commitment ministry can allow a new mom an evening that she can let someone else take care of her while she takes care of her baby.  Or someone who is recovering from surgery doesn’t have to worry about how they are going to get dinner together. If you want to get involved contact Diane Ewing email at


 Congregational care at SCPC is a team effort. The Care team is led by Pastor Candie Blankman, Pastor Dee Hazen, and Vi Janssen, elder for care. The team includes members and friends of SCPC who provide visitation, meals, prayer, emergency assistance, and cancer and grief support, and memorial ministry.  Another part of the Care Team, called Alongside, provides extra support through trained caring men and women who accompany folks experiencing hard times. All members and friends have access to this care team. Contact Pastor Blankman at


 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 there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel. This can be a confusing time when you feel isolated and have many questions about things you’ve never faced before.  GriefShare groups meet weekly to help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life. Contact Marsha Easterday at 949.412.2987 or
 June Dempsey at 949.498.4058 if you have any questions.



 Cancer Support Group is for people struggling with cancer or have a loved one struggling with it.  Come and meet other people struggling in the same way. No one should have to go through it alone.  Contact leader Dave Robinson if you have questions (848) 842-4206 or email:
