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.
