Compassion and Care Team:
The Compassion and Care Team works to keep all APC members connected to the church by visiting homebound members and providing transportation to worship as well as looking for ways to share elements of worship with those in assisted living facilities.

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 works with APC’s Open Arms ministry (including Elder Care), provides education, and connects with outside support groups (such as Alcoholics Anonymous) who meet at APC. The team will also assist with divorce and grief support groups provided by APC.
