Congregational Care

Congregational Care Ministries provides care, concern, prayer and support for families and individuals at various stages, places, and circumstances of life and to engage the congregation in service and community for one another. The focus of the Congregation Care office is to respond to the care and support needs of the congregation and to engage the congregation in the ongoing spiritual, physical, emotional and relational expression of living faithfully within the Body of Christ.
