  • 2020 Victory Report: The Care and Compassion Ministry would like to thank you for the opportunities we have had this year to partner with the church in serving our brothers and sisters. We are grateful for the support we have received from our leaders and our core C&CM team to help "stand in the gap". 2 Corinthians 1:4 - He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us. We would like to share our year-end report to all who would like to see some of the ways our church has much to be grateful for this year!
