Pastoral Care & Visitation
 


Nursing Home and Homebound Visits
Visitation pastors make monthly visits to those who are homebound and to nursing home residents, providing Holy Communion and devotional time. Twice a year, the pastors conduct worship in nine local care centers. If you become aware of a homebound member who is not receiving regular visitation, contact Donna Jahr at djahr@flcsf.org or 339-1983, ext. 202.

Hospital Visitation
The pastoral care staff maintains regular contact with the hospitalized and the recuperating. Visits are made to Avera McKennan Hospital, Avera Behavioral Center, Avera Heart Hospital, Sanford Health Hospital, the VA Medical Center, and hospice locations each weekday, and other times as necessary. If you know of a member or friend of First Lutheran who enters the hospital through emergency services, pleasecontact Donna Jahr at djahr@flcsf.org or 339-1983, ext. 202.
