CARE ministries

If you or someone you know is in need of prayer or a visit from one of our Care Team members, please contact Lisa Baez Colon at

Benevolence Team

We assist those in our church and wider community with meeting basic needs like food, clothing, housing, medical treatment, funeral expenses and counseling.

If you find yourself in a hard season of life, let us come alongside and help. Please complete the Care Fund Request Form, and someone will contact you.

Meals Team

Every other night for up to two weeks, we provide meals for those who’ve experienced a new birth, surgery, hospitalization or other crisis. Please submit the Meals Request Form, and we’ll be in touch.
