The Care Team is one of our newest ministries. The goal of the Care Team is to help ensure that each part of the body of Christ at Calvary Bible feels the care and concern that we have for one another. The ministries below are in their formative stages but we are looking for more to be involved.
Team Leader: Junell Hoekstra
Directors: Jack and Marilyn Carney
Our brothers and sisters often find themselves in difficult times due to health problems that land them in the hospital. When they are there, they often can struggle with discouragement and loneliness. So the visitation ministry seeks to provide encouragement and company during their time in the hospital.
Director: Laura Meents
The Meals Ministry seeks to provide meals for families who are going through extremely difficult times that make preparing a meal difficult.
Director: Jeremie Wells
Many of our widows and widowers find themselves unable to take care of various maintenance tasks around the house. The hope is that we can develop a team of men and women who would serve our widows and widowers by going in groups of two or three to visit with them and help them with some of the tasks that they can not do themselves.
Director: Mark Glassford
While this position is an elected roll on the Finance Team, the Care ministry will often be the first to know of a need and therefore the Care Team Leader will work closely with the Benevolence Coordinator.
