Called to Care

Join our Congregational Care Team!

In response to Christ's call to love one another, the Congregational Care Team seeks to extend Christian care, concern, and support to those who are homebound, hospitalized, or in need of help including visitation, communion, meal delivery, and prayer.

If you would like to serve in this ministry by either visiting those in need or by cooking meals as needed, please contact us by phone or email

Help us reach out to the sick, lonely, and vulnerable in our community.
