New Congregational Care Ministry begins on Sunday, 7/1 with a commissioning ceremony for our Leaders during our morning worship services. This new ministry will take our Family Ministry to a new level as each Congregational Care Leader will care for a small number of persons/families in our church to ensure that everyone senses care and concern from the church. Congregational Care Leaders will act as representatives of the church and the Pastor(s) office to be sure that you are connected to and are cared for by your church family. Anyone having questions about this new ministry is invited to call Pastor Pam at the church office 276-728-2434.
