Need Care & Support

Central CARES

Central CARES is a ministry to connects people to the church during difficult times by offering a comprehensive care ministry. We believe that congregational care is care done through the congregation. Developing leaders and equipping servants to use their God-given gifts to provide ministry to our congregation. When members cannot get to us, we go to them and offer support groups when the need arises. Come join our CARES Team of Care Ministers, Prayer Team, Handy Helpers, Prayer Shawl Team, Correspondence Team, and Baking Ministry and experience the great joy of congregational ministry.

Compassion, Accessibility, Renewal, Equipping, and Support.

Call us, we are standing by to offer you comprehensive care, support, and encouragement when you need it most.

CARES Ministry

You don’t have to face the difficult times alone. CARES Ministry is a compassion ministry for people facing difficult challenges in their lives such as the loss of a loved one, divorce, or illness. It is one-to-one, confidential, Christ-centered care provided by laypersons who have been equipped by the church with specific training. Being a CARES Minister is a practical and powerful way to respond to Christ’s commandment: “Love one another as I have loved you.”

Handy Helpers

Handy Helpers are here to serve those in need.  If you are home-bound, elderly, or have a compromised immune system, Handy Helpers will pick up groceries or pharmacy items and deliver them to your home.  If you or anyone in your family needs a Handy Helper, please contact   at 479-442-4237 to make a request.
