Our Christian Care Core coordinates support ministries for church members who cannot always get to church services and functions. The CCC is under the guidance of Pastor David Aslesen. Implementation is coordinated by Helen Billings. If you have questions, contact the church office at 847-825-3144, who will put you in contact with Helen.
We need many volunteers. Please give prayerful consideration to joining one of our ministries. Here are some of the ministries where volunteers are needed. If you think of others please share them with us!
Volunteers are needed to receive prayer requests over the phone, pray for each request, and pass the request on to others in the chain. Prayer makes a difference!
