Compassion and Care Team:

Service Team:
The Service Team contacts and supports an individual or the family of an individual who is hospitalized. Team members may deliver flowers, send cards, make phone calls, visit the patient at home or in the hospital, deliver “Meals to Heal” to their family, or meet other needs during or immediately after a hospital stay. Support continues as needed after the patient is released. This team also organizes funeral receptions.

Connections and Support Team:
The Connections and Support Team oversees APC’s Open Arms ministry (including Elder Care), provides education, and connects with outside support groups (such as Alcoholics Anonymous) who meet at APC as well as the Care and Counseling Center of Georgia office located at APC. The team will also assist with divorce and grief support groups provided by APC.
