Health Ministry Team

The purpose of the this team is to be caring Disciples of Christ who offer a tangible and loving response to friends in a time of need or crisis. We are the conduit that connects the ministering staff with the prayer needs with the personal concerns of the congregation. Members of this group send cards, write notes, deliver prayer shawls, make phone calls, take Communion to the homebound and visit people in the congregation.
