Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. 2 Corinthians 1:3-4 NIV
The purpose of our Care and Concern Ministry at Calvary is to offer confidential acts of encouragement and support to members of our congregational family when they face, illness, loss, and everyday transitions that often challenge our faith. Because Christ responds to our needs with love and compassion, we, in turn, offer our care and concern to each other.
During the past year Care and Concern volunteers reached out to offer encouragement to 95 people. We did this by providing 44 meals, sending 293 cards, supplying transportation 14 times, and making 144 phone calls and 74 visits. We also offered 21 miscellaneous instances of support to meet various needs.
The Growing in Care and Concern Initiative, is an expansion of this ministry. With our new offerings, Care and Concern Ministry will be able to expand the services that we offer and the frequency that we are able to support our members in times of need. Join us to learn more about ways that you can be a part of this rewarding ministry at a lunch meeting this Sunday, January 13 in the fellowship hall following worship. (12:15) For additional information about this new initiative, please contact Phyllis Jessup (704-455-9430) or Susan Norris (704-788-1249).
