This ministry training program was created because of the significant need in our community, as well as in the body of Christ, to care for those dealing with cancer. According to the American Cancer Society, over 12 million people in the United States are living with or have been personally diagnosed with cancer. Every year, 1.5 million more people receive a cancer diagnosis.
That means that in a church of 200 people, approximately eight people are living with cancer and two more will be diagnosed with it every year. Each of these individuals has family members and caregivers that are affected as well. This Bible-based ministry training program has been developed to equip God's people with the tools needed to bring hope to the millions who are living with cancer.

Senior Care Team
Our Senior Care Team spends time visiting and caring for church members, attenders, and people who reside in care homes, assisted living centers, memory care units as well as those who are still living at home but can no longer attend church do to physical limitations. In addition to our visits, monthly communion visits are also made.
Special Delivery Team
Whether it’s a life celebration of a new family member or a life challenge such as grief, health, or surgery recovery, our Special Delivery Team provides care through the delivery of meals. To request a meal delivery or to serve on this team, contact Care Ministry Director, Staci Allen.
Grief can be a very lonely journey full of ups and downs. You do not need to walk this journey by yourself. Our Bereavement Team provides ongoing care for individuals who are grieving the loss of a loved one through grief support classes and personal contacts.
