The passion, mandate and vision of Care Ministry is to demonstrate the loving care of our Savior by ministering to those in need of comfort, care and support. An important aspect of Care Ministry is equipping and encouraging our entire  church body to be involved in providing prayer, love and practical acts of caring for one another.  Our goal is that the  comfort you experience within Colonial will be multiplied through you to others inside and outside the church.
