Ministry Team of the Month: Care Ministry Team

As a church family, we have worked hard to be known as a congregation that cares well for others. Many of the programs, activities, and events that help foster this kind of environment fall under the incredible work of the Care Ministry Team. This team demonstrates love by organizing events, providing care, providing food/meals for the purpose of encouragement during times of need, special events, or times of celebration.

Some of these events and programs include showers, blood drives, care packages, funeral dinners, shut-in baskets, surgery recovery meals, and senior quilts. This time of volunteers is let by Kathy Hodgman. If you enjoy cooking, baking, throwing parties, quilting or just caring for other people, contact Kathy to get involved.

Servant Spotlight: Martin Karr

Each month we take a moment to celebrate one example of how God works through his people. This month’s servant spotlight is on Martin Karr who serves with our Adult Bible Classes Ministry Team, Outreach Ministry Team and Worship Support Ministry Team.  Martin was asked to come help with one of our Feeding America Trucks because we were short volunteers. He loved the experience so much he now volunteers at other area distributions and has build many relationship with other people who need to know the Good News of Jesus.
