People matter. Our Care Ministries make sure that our congregation and their families know that. We provide encouragement, support, and hope to those experiencing difficult times in their lives.
This ministry provides support for bereaving families and offers encouragement for those who are ill. This comes in the form of hospital visits, personal hands-on support during funeral services, mailings to those who are unable to attend services due to illness and other methods.
If you are an NCBC member and are affected by an illness or death, or know of another NCBC member who is dealing with an illness or death, please contact our CAREline at: 614-475-1678, ext. 96127. A Care Team member will return your call within 24 hours.
