Congregational Care Ministry

The Congregational Care Ministry exists to meet the needs of our church family. Our ministry is expressed in many different ways including visits to the hospital, nursing home, and homebound. We also exist to provide bereavement support as needed. Find a place of service in ministry opportunities that focus on serving others. Our Care Pastor, Mike Wilson, oversees the ministry needs of our church family during times of need.
