About Congregational Care
The Congregational Care Ministry of Highland Park UMC is here to love and support the members of our congregation. We believe as Christians we are to love God and to love our neighbor (Mark 12:29-31), and we are here to share in that ministry with you. The Congregational Care Ministry consists of staff members: Rev. Ramsey Patton (Director of Caring Ministries), Rev. Joe Stabile (Director), Rev. Barbara Marcum, Rev. Arville McLain, Rev. Dawn Anderson, Trissie Osborn and Mary Bishop. Cheryle Robbins is our administrative assistant.
“The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.”
