Congregational Care Ministry

…will focus on providing the opportunity for the Pastor and trained Congregational Care Ministers (CCMs) to partner, effectively, in serving the care needs of the church Family.

Under the guidance of the Pastor, CCMs will make visits to hospital and other care facilities, telephone persons in need of contact, meet with and support individuals and families in special need with prayer, encouragement and companionship. Serving together to attend to the needs of the congregation enables another level of care to the church Family.

We celebrate the commissioning of our new Congregational Care Ministers! Thanks be to God!
