Care ministries seek to help encourage those within our congregation during their time of need, spiritually, physically, and emotionally. We accomplish this through various care teams that enjoy serving using their gifts in a variety of ways, ranging from words of encouragement, to cooking meals, to providing transportation, to helping fix a house. All that is required is for team members who have a heart for others!
