Care Ministry

The Care Ministry's purpose is to help meet the needs of those in our church, on our campus and in the community who are suffering from illnesses, life changes, financial struggles, isolation and grief. Many individuals in this church are "co-workers in God's service" and are dedicating their time, talent and treasure to selflessly serving others.
