Care Ministry

Nina Dohoda

Pastor of Congregational Care

Providing competent, compassionate care in Jesus’ name, bringing hope, encouragement, spiritual guidance and mercy to the hurting people in the body of Christ.

For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me. Matt. 25:35-36

Home Visitation

The Home Visitation Team’s goal is to bring encouragement to those who can no longer join our weekly church gatherings through personal contact, prayer, scripture reading or just chatting! Home Visitation takes place Monday mornings each week.

Request a Home Visit

If your heart reaches out to people who are hurting, lonely or in need, then consider joining the Home Visitation Team as we visit others weekly. This ministry is flexible and commitments can be weekly or bi-weekly. Contact Nina at for more information.


Chaplain Visitation

WACC’s Chaplains visit those who are hospitalized, recuperating in a facility, at home or on hospice care to encourage, support and pray with individual and their families during the most difficult circumstances and trying times.

Celebration of Life Ceremony

One of the most difficult things a person will experience is the death of a loved one. The Congregational Care Ministry staff at Whittier Area Community Church is prepared to walk alongside you to plan and facilitate a personalized Celebration of Life ceremony that honors your loved one and provides comfort and closure. Memorial service costs can vary greatly depending on personal wishes, so in an effort to clarify and help the decision-making process, costs for services and personnel are listed below. If you or someone close to you has suffered a loss, we extend our deepest condolences, and yet we rejoice in the promise of eternal life we have been given through Jesus Christ.
