Care Ministry

Demonstrating God's compassion and love

Every day, our lives are caught in the mire of human frailty: illness, death, loss, change, sudden tragedy, prolonged issues and more. Our church family offers prayer, care, comfort, counseling and spiritual support through our Care Ministry. If you or someone you know is in need, contact us.
