We Care for You

For a follower of Christ, caring for others is not an optional activity. We show others we care through our actions, not merely our words. Care Ministry seeks to equip the church to care for one another in practical ways. Using our gifts, talents, and life experiences, we walk together in a community of support through life's transitions.

Whether you are experiencing one of life's many transitions, or you're seeking to use the story of your life to help others, Care Ministry can help you take the next step in your journey with Christ.
