Pet Ministry

Our Mission:

The People & Paws Pet Ministry meets unique needs of the Church membership, the community and their pets. God has given us dominion over the animals (Genesis 1:24-29), meaning that He has challenged us to take care of them. God also expects us to be in love and charity with our neighbors, meeting the needs of others wherever and whenever possible.

With these directives in mind, the People & Paws Pet Ministry provides three specific services:

  1. Assistance with the care and/or placement of pets for individuals.
    -Aide in Pet Adoption
  2. Offering grief support to those who have lost or have sick pets. We We will pray for the pets and their owners – we also offer a Prayer Request Page to place prayer requests for pets and their owners in times of need.
  3. Providing Resources – We will act as a center for information regarding care of household pets and help in providing the following services and events:
    • Vet information and recommendations
    • Annual Blessing of the Animals
    • Quarterly Services for pets and their owners to help bring them closer to God.
    • Community Outreach to help those pets and owners requiring special needs.
