CPC Congregational Care is about sharing life — its joys and its sorrows — with our church community.
“We rejoice with those who rejoice and we weep with those who weep.”
Hundreds of trained Lay Care volunteers, alongside the Congregational Care Ministry Team, bring the presence of Jesus to sisters and brothers of our church and neighborhood. Congregational Care offers opportunities to be cared for and to care for others.
