A Sugar Creek minister is on-call and available to you 24 hours a day and seven days a week should you need help. In an emergency situation or after hours, please call 281.242.2858 and the voice mail system will guide you through each step. Once you’ve left a message, then a minister will be paged and return your call.

Please use discernment when placing calls at night and limit these to urgent needs such as emergency hospitalization or the death of a loved one. IF THE CALLER IS IN PHYSICAL DANGER OR PHYSICALLY ILL, PLEASE CALL 911.

The Care Ministry office keeps a daily log of those members in the area hospitals. IF WE KNOW, WE GO! Our Ministry Staff and Deacons, as well as trained volunteers are encouraged to visit those who are in the hospital when it is appropriate per the family’s request. Our Deacon Hospital Visitation Ministry Team registers new volunteers and provides periodic training to those who desire to visit the sick in the hospital. The Deacon team reports new trained volunteers to the Care Ministry office to add to our distribution list for the daily hospital listing.

The Care Ministry office also has funeral planning resources and directing a family who desires help planning the funeral of a loved one. If a funeral or memorial service is desired at Sugar Creek Baptist Church, it will be necessary for the bereaved family to contact the Care Ministry office to discuss availability and feasibility, schedule, direct and contact participants in the service, ie. officiant pastor, musicians, creative communication staff, and facilities. If a guest pastor is requested to officiate a service at Sugar Creek, that pastor must be approved by our Lead Pastor, and one of the Sugar Creek Pastors will co-officiate the service. The Care Ministry office will discuss the options for church space availability based on the Church calendar of events. The Care Ministry Director will offer counseling and direction during and after the service. If additional assistance is needed in selecting mortuaries or other educational information, feel free to discuss this in the Care Ministry office. Our Care Resource Library online, provides some website information for local mortuaries.
