Congregational Care

“So the twelve gathered all the disciples together and said, ‘It would not be right for us to neglect the ministry of the Word of God in order to wait on tables. Brothers (and sisters), choose seven from among you who are known to be full of the Spirit and wisdom. We will turn this responsibility over to them and will give our attention to prayer and the ministry of the word.”
Acts 6:2-4
 
The Congregational Care Team works to provide for the nurture of members who are in need or disconnected from the community of faith with the purpose of helping them grow as disciples, meeting basic needs, providing encouragement and support, connecting with needed services when possible.
