Why C.A.R.E. Ministry?

“Not unto us, O Lord, not unto us, but unto Thy Name give glory, for Thy mercy, and for Thy Truth’s sake.”
                                                 Psalm 115:1

God’s people are called to serve Him and to love one another.  The mission of the C.A.R.E. Ministry is to offer Christlike COMPASSION to others by putting our love into ACTION while building RELATIONSHIPS and a memorable EXPERIENCE with friends and family.
