Casserole’s-to-Go

In an effort to reach out to those experiencing transition and such difficulties as surgery and loss, we have a ministry that offers food and support. Casseroles are received from members of the congregation on those months which have a 5th Sunday.

A team of nurses and health care workers offer support to the congregation and community. Screenings, training, and collection of medical equipment are part of the mission of this team. They also offer a health care fair offered to the community each year.
 

Caring Connections

Enjoy fellowship, food, and fun then you will enjoy the ministry of this team. Working to offer connections for all in the church family, the caring connections team provides events that bring persons together. St Patrick’s Day Potato Bake, Spring Variety Show, and a pet blessing are activities that this team has offered to our community.
