What Is The Purpose Of The Congregational Care Ministries?

The purpose of the Congregational Care Ministry is to provide an organized way of caring for members’ needs by:

Nurturing the body, mind, and spirit in health and illness;
Equipping members to serve each other;
Praying for and with each other;
and assisting to provide Care and compassion to our NEPC members and their families.

NEPC is looking for volunteers to donate 2 to 3 hours a month visiting with some of our church members. Representing NEPC, you only need to share your time and caring concern. Please contact Pastor Eric Walter for more information.


  • Individuals or families who are seniors or are home-bound with illness are entrusted to the care of an elder or deacon. Shepherds visit their “flock” regularly to provide spiritual and relational support.


  • Pastors and Elders serve communion to our homebound members periodically or as requested.


  • This ministry provides individuals or families with a team of volunteers who are dedicated to providing care in an organized way during a crisis situation or long term illness. Please contact us if you are interested in joining a team.


  • Neighborhood teams who work together to provide meals for people during times of need. Team members are asked to provide one dish usually once every two months.

  • Each Sunday, volunteer bus drivers assist in picking up seniors who live in nearby retirement communities to attend the 11:15 a.m. worship service.  Transportation also provided for special Easter and Christmas Eve services. For information on joining this team please contact us.
