Caring Ministries/Servants’ Roundtable

The Servants’ Roundtable is an umbrella for the ministries serving our congregation and nearby communities.  Through quarterly gatherings the leaders share joys and concerns, and through prayer and sharing encourage mutual support for each others’ ministries.
