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.
