Dear Poovey’s Grove Baptist Church,
I would like to take a few moments to encourage you to C.A.R.E.! At PGBC we have a ministry in place that is much more than just a program. If you are looking for a way to impact your community as well as encourage your brothers and sisters in Christ, then look no further than C.A.R.E.!
Our C.A.R.E. Ministry is currently meeting every other Wednesday night @ 6:00 P.M. We gather for a time of dinner and fellowship that is immediately followed by church members going on mission for God. When our C.A.R.E. volunteers finish their dinner they have a choice of how they will minister. They can write cards and letters for both In-Reach and Out-Reach. They can make phone calls to either set up times for visits or to encourage those in need. They can opt to join a couple of other volunteers and go out to visit others. Or they can come and go to the throne room of Grace to lift up prayers for those in need. Some can serve in providing child care so that others may serve. Some serve the meal at 6:00P.M. Some serve by making things for shut-ins, others by doing some of the office work to get the letters mailed out on time. C.A.R.E. is about Christians Actively Reaching Everyone!
The lifeline of our ministry is Jesus Christ! The lifeline of our communication are the C.A.R.E. Cards. These cards are given out during Sunday Morning Service. They alert us to prayer concerns, personal needs, neighbors who need a visit, as well as any other pertinent information. The information gathered is organized and assignments are made for the next C.A.R.E. Ministry night.
I hope that you will consider volunteering to support some phase of this ministry. It only requires two evenings a month. If you feel you have a spiritual gift that is not being utilized, talk to me or to one of the other C.A.R.E. ministry volunteers. I am sure that we will be able to find a way to help you find your ministry in C.A.R.E. Whatever your thoughts are about C.A.R.E., please share them with me sometime. I hope that C.A.R.E. will be a place that allows us all to actively reach out with caring arms to a lost and dying world.
