Congregational Care Team

The purpose of our Congregational Care Team is just as it sounds--to take care of the congregation. This includes everything from following up on prayer requests; praying with members of the congregation before surgery; visiting members who are home-bound, in hospitals, rehab units, and long-term care centers; providing meals after hospital discharge; and being there during hospice. Whatever the situation, our Congregational Care Team is there to walk alongside those in need.
