Congregational Care Team Mission

The mission of the Care Team is to contribute to the well-being of members and friends of the congregation through a ministry guided by compassion and evidenced through intentional acts of loving-kindness and support.

We seek to live out our mission in the following ways:

  • Supporting individuals and families during life transitions, hospitalizations, and crises
  • Offering comfort to the ill and bereaved
  • Maintaining contact with those who are unable to attend services
  • Providing emergency transportation and meals
  • Offering support to families with sick or injured pets or those grieving the loss of pets
