The Community Care Team is a group of people commissioned by the church to care for the needs of the body by walking alongside those in need. This team helps promote a community of care within our church where we share one another’s burdens and support one another through difficult times.
“Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.” Gal. 6:2
