C.A.R.E. Ministry

Christian Assistance & Resources For Everyone

The C.A.R.E Ministry provides assistance to those going through difficult times who cannot help themselves. Our goal is to touch the lives of hurting individuals through benevolent gifts. This ministry has helped with medication purchase assistance, utility assistance, and food replenishment, among other requests. The congregation maintains a food pantry at the building and food is available for all who come to us requesting such assistance.

At times, we have provided food for as many as forty families a week. As a result, many people who are not even able to communicate in the English language have come to
identify our building as a place of assistance when they are in need.

Our goal in helping others is to demonstrate the love of Jesus. We also encourage everyone we help to return and worship the Lord with us, offering Bibles and Bible studies, and Bible correspondence courses as well.

There are plenty of opportunities for one to serve in this ministry. The following are potential areas for service in this ministry for those who desire to use their talents in such a manner.

  • Provide food for the food pantry. Help maintain the food pantry at the building
  • Interview clients to respond to their requests for financial assistance
  • Send flowers to members admitted to the hospital and upon the death of members or immediate family members of members
