    My name is Lisa Baggett and I am blessed to serve as the Care Ministry Leader of Indian River City Church. I am married to a great man named Steve and have two awesome boys, Dylan and Sam. I have attended Indian River Church for 11 years and am honored to be serving our congregation in this way! The care ministry provides hospital, nursing home and homebound visitation, as well as intercessory and healing prayer groups. The Prayer shawl ministry also provides a wonderful way to bless and encourage those who are struggling. I am always looking for opportunities to bless and support parishioners in need, as well as encourage the congregation to find ways to care for each other.
