The Care Response Team (CRT) exists to provide Christian Care giving for an immediate need or crisis, resources for sustaining care, and training to equip others for the future. The practical purpose for the CRT was formed to look after seriously ill or injured people and their caregivers. CRT helps anyone at NCC who is not in a small group or the team can supplement small group care when a group member has a long-term need.
The Care Response Team currently coordinates the following ministries:
The Prayer Team responds to specific prayer requests. Team members confidentially pray for the needs in the congregation as well as needs in the lives of members' friends and families, as requested. If you have a prayer request, please submit the online prayer request form. If you would like to volunteer to serve on this team, contact the church office.
For I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me something to drink; I was a stranger, and you invited Me in; naked, and you clothed Me; I was sick, and you visited Me; I was in prison, and you came to Me.
Matthew 25: 35-36
The Meal Team provides meals to families during and after a crisis. Serving on this team requires a willingness to be contacted when a need for meal support comes up. Volunteers prepare, purchase and/or deliver meals. To volunteer to be on this team or if you need meals, contact the church office.
Wrapped in the arms of love and prayers!
The Prayer Shawl Team gathers once a month and works on their own time to knit and crochet shawls, scarves, lap blankets, etc. The team prays for the people who will receive the knitted or crocheted item as they are being made. When prayer needs arise, these shawls are given to those as a comforting gift. If you are interested or have any questions, please contact Gretchen Coppin.
