COMFORT AND CARE MINISTRY – provides comfort and care for those experiencing any type of loss, especially bereavement. No special training is required, only a compassionate heart and sincere desire to minister.
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. [II Corinthians 1: 3-4, NKJV]
Mission Statement: To comfort those who are suffering and to train and equip others to promote healing and comfort for those who have experienced loss.
In December, the Comfort and Care Ministry hosts a Precious Memories Service to offer support and comfort to the bereaved during the holiday season as they commemorate the lives of their loved ones. It is designed to help the bereaved look forward with hope and encouragement.
The Comfort and Care Ministry was formed in the fall of 2008 under Pastor Nathan Johnson. This ministry was initiated by Group 15, The Good Effort Club, in an effort to provide a ministry of support for bereaved and suffering individuals.
