cancer Care ministry

In difficult and trying times, we often don’t know where to turn first.  While cancer and disease can bring fear and tests everyone affected by it, there is hope.  Hope is God’s plan for each of us.  Join us on the journey of hope.  


This is a ministry made up of locally trained volunteers from various faith backgrounds who desire to provide practical support to patients and caregivers being treated for cancer and other illnesses.


Cancer and other diseases do not discriminate based on gender, age, race or faith.  Our trained volunteers are able to assist you with physical, emotional and spiritual needs through your journey.


Our volunteers are adults from the surrounding area, who have received over 16 hours of training through the Cancer Treatment Centers of America and have passed a background check.


Practical ways we can assist are through r
egular visits, yard work, house cleaning, meals, encouragement, transportation, etc.

Should you become aware of someone in our church family who would benefit by receiving a meal, please use the online resource "Take Them A Meal" to coordinate a meal train simply and efficiently - its easy to set up and share the need.
