Care Ministries

Second Presbyterian Church cares for one another. Our care is part of our DNA, created in the image of a loving and compassionate God – and it’s an enormous part of how we live as the body of Christ together.

Visits to hospitals and long-term care facilities – specially made and gifted prayer shawls and flower arrangements – offering a listening ear and heartfelt prayers – reaching out to those who have lost a loved one – delivering poinsettias at Christmas-time and lilies before Easter…Our pastors, Deacons, and members care for one another in a multitude of ways, seen and unseen.

Do you have a need for prayer or support? Would you like to help offer care to others? Please contact Rev. Madison VanVeelen, Coordinator of Pastoral Care, for more information at mvanveelen@secondchurch.org, or (317) 253-6461.

She was ordained as a Minister of the Word and Sacrament in August 2014. Before serving in her current role, Madison served as a Lake Fellow in Parish Ministry (2014-2016) and the Coordinator of Northside Mission Ministry (2016-2018). While working with Northside, Madison also pastored a Presbyterian church in the Plainfield area.
