Care Ministry at Colonial Baptist Church is strengthening its commitment to provide comfort and care to the church family. Our goal is that the comfort you experience within Colonial will be multiplied through you to others inside and outside the church.
The passion, mandate and vision of Care Ministries is to demonstrate the loving care of our Savior by ministering to those in need of comfort, care and support. An important aspect of Care Ministries is equipping and encouraging our entire church body to be involved in providing prayer, love and practical acts of caring for one another. If you are in need of help or would like to serve, please contact us.
