Congregational Care

All Christians are called to care for each other. Our Congregation Care ministries focus on healing and strengthening our relationships with God and our relationships with others. For more information about our care ministries, please contact Pastor Ellen Rose or call the church office at 919-362-7807.

  • Food Ministry volunteers help prepare and deliver meals to those who are sick or are in times of need.
  • Insiders Ministry Team provides companionship to those residing in care facilities or who are unable to leave their homes.
  • Stephen Ministry provides high-quality, confidential, Christ-centered care and support to people experiencing life difficulties.
