Please reach out with needs—big or small, life-changing or simply nagging. The Care Department can’t promise to fix your troubles, but we can pray for or with you and offer listening, nonjudgmental ears and open hearts and minds—and, of course, see how else we can help.
During the week:
Call the Church Office at 630.600.5100 or
Caryn Rivadeneira, Director of Care, at 630.600.5025
After hours or on weekends:
Caryn Rivadeneira, Director of Care

If you need prayer, consider:
Prayer Chain: Requests can be sent to our prayer chain of approximately 400 members and friends of Elmhurst CRC. We reserve the right to edit the requests for privacy. The chain is sent to several hundred congregants and we cannot promise confidentiality.
Prayer Triads: We have groups of three people and staff willing to pray for you in total confidence. To share your prayer request with a Prayer Triad, email Prayer Triads below.
Small Group or Ministry Team Leader: Don’t be shy asking people you serve with for prayer.
Please let us know your care needs. Remember: we can’t help if we don’t know!
The Hannah's Heart Ministry exists to provide care and support for families who have experienced the death of a baby due to miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, stillbirth or early infant death, or who are dealing with infertility issues. A home visit, phone call, keepsake box, reference information and educational material are provided for these families.
