Helping hands (deacons)

The helping hands ministry provides comfort and support to the hurting members of our congregation, as well as those in need. This comfort and support presents itself in a variety of different ways including but not limited to delivering meals to someone recovering from an illness or hospital stay or person grieving the loss of a loved one, visiting CCC family members in the hospital, rehabilitation facility or at home during their recovery/shut-in, helping the elderly with errands or around the house tasks, and many more. If you have a heart for hurting people, contact Dan or Eleanor Siegrist and join the Helping Hands ministry.
