DEACONS: 2023 Care Teams

Moderators: Meredith Brogan, Andrew Bamford

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.

Service Team:
The Service Team organizes funeral receptions and also 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 their family, or meet other needs during or immediately after a hospital stay. Support continues as needed after the patient is released.
