Congregational Care

The associate pastor for pastoral care  Olive Mahabir is available to support the congregation's pastoral care concerns. During office hours, she can be reached by calling the church office at 770-998-1482. Voice mail is available for emergencies, and your call will be returned as soon as possible.

The congregation of Northminster Presbyterian believes in the power of prayer. Northminster offers a prayer vine to share prayer requests with the congregation. This information is published several times a week through emails and in the Cares and Concerns list included in the Sunday worship bulletin. If you have a prayer request, please click on the Make A Prayer Request button above.

The Memorial Garden in the northwest corner of the church also offers a wonderful place for prayer and reflection, as well as remembering a loved one through the placing of a memorial brick. For information on purchasing a memorial brick, please contact the church office (770-998-1482).


The passing of a loved one or a friend is difficult for anyone to experience. Our pastoral staff shares in the need of those in grief by offering prayer and consolation. We can also assist in the planning of a funeral/memorial service. When we are made aware of the loss, our pastoral staff will contact the family to express condolences, offer prayer, and offer any assistance that the family may request. For those who request it, grief support counseling is available.

Homebound Visits

Members of Northminster and the pastoral staff regularly visit members who are confined to home or to a facility such as a nursing or assisted living home. If you know anyone who would desire a visit, please contact the church office at 770-998-1482.

Hospital Visits

The pastoral staff extends compassion and prayer to those hospitalized through visitation if possible and phone contact in the area's hospitals. Most hospitals still have very restrictive visitation policies, but our pastoral staff will make hospital visits as hospitals’ policies allow. If you or a family member are in the hospital please inform the church office of your condition, the hospital, and room number at 770-998-1482.
