Congregational Care has many ministries, each of which provide opportunities for caring for each other and showing the love of Christ.  Here are some of those ministries:

Prayer Team: Our prayer team captain receives prayer requests, usually by email, and sends them out to the members of our prayer team. These prayers are lifted up in confidence among our prayer team.  Captain: Martha Gibby Co-Captain: Scottie Woody

Weekly Prayer List: A prayer list of joys and concerns of our church family is compiled weekly and provides prayer requests that the entire congregation may lift up collectively and confidently.

Visitation/Telecare: We visit and/or call the folks on our visitation list or others who are either homebound, reside at assisted living facilities, in the hospital, ill, or simply in need of Christian companionship. Chairperson: Gay Kistler

Loaves and Fishes: We provide a home cooked meal to those in need following surgery, an illness, bereavement, or any other situation of need. Chairperson: Slim Nance
