CARE Initiatives

We are privileged to love one another. It is in this spirit that we have formed the Care Leadership Team (CLT). The goal of the CLT is to learn the needs of our congregation and coordinate assistance. To do this, we will draw upon the natural strengths of our church family to develop a network of caregivers. As a caregiver, people will have the option to serve when a need arises. We are seeking volunteers in the following areas:

Encouragement Ministries (i.e. Cards, Prayer, Visitation)

Household Ministries (i.e. House Work, Yard Work, Household Repairs, Packing & Moving)

Family Support Ministries (i.e. Childcare, Tutoring, Mentoring, School Pick-up/Drop-off)

Transportation Ministries (i.e. Rides to doctors, stores, appointments, etc.)

Hospitality Ministries (i.e. Hot Meals, Shepherd’s Freezer, Hosting)

Please let us know which of the ministries match your gifts by filling out the form below. Further questions can be addressed by emailing us at CARE@millingtonbaptist.org. We look forward to serving with you!
