Communicating the love of Christ in our words and actions.

The mission of the Compassionate Care Ministry is to encourage our members to use their gifts to support and care for one another in a coordinated effort. 

As we have opportunity, let us do good to all people,
especially to those that belong to the family of believers.
Galatians 6:10

Care That We Offer

The goal of the Compassion Ministry  is to meet the following needs:

  • Meals for a family during an illness, particularly an extended illness.
     
  • Transportation to and from an appointment such as a doctor's visit (if family is unavailable)
     
  • Help with a mechanical or home problem or direction to someone that can make the necessary repair.
     
  • Encouragement and prayer for a difficult situation because life is sometimes difficult.
     
  • Guidance from an advocate who can help you get connected to the appropriate resources.
