Care ministry exists to support you through all of life’s seasons.
As a church family, we seek to share Christ’s compassion with one another by celebrating our joys and shouldering our burdens together. Our pastoral staff is available to make home and hospital visits and to meet with you on a short-term basis, as well as to connect you to the resources of this caring church community.
We stand ready to help through our Prayer Ministry team, Funeral Guild, Flower Ministry, Meal Ministry, and Support Groups. Current support groups include meetings of Alcoholics Anonymous on Tuesdays and Fridays, and Al-Anon meetings on Wednesdays.
