A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another

John 13:34-35

Care ministry exists to glorify God by loving people in ways that are biblical and Christ-centered. It is a ministry of God’s grace for this life, focused on people enjoying God’s grace for eternity. We care for the physical and spiritual needs of our church family, knowing that it is often during times of trouble when we are most open to the growth in our hearts that only Christ can do.


Our Pastoral Care Team cares for people who are hurting in our River Valley family. We aim to show up when there is a crisis or need and come prepared to listen and pray. We visit those who are sick, meet with those who are hurting, and encourage with scripture and prayer. Training is required and provided.
