Care Connection Partners
We know that many times people feel invisible or unvalued simply because there is no personal communication. Receiving a personal phone call and having someone who is a direct connection with the body can be a vital part of spiritual health and growth.
At the present time, calls are being made to Seniors 70 and older, but we anticipate as the team grows, we will be able to expand the ministry.
Each Care Connection Partner is responsible for 5-7 people to talk with at least once a month. Results of the calls are noted in each person’s (those receiving the call) individual profile, so we are aware of those who are not being touched, and can further reach out.
One of the things that makes Community Church unique is UNITY. This does not come naturally or easily, because Satan is always lurking on the sidelines, looking for an opportunity to create disharmony. We have learned a few things along the way that help us maintain the unity that we believe the Lord desires.
The message of John the Baptist was Repent! Be Baptized! When Jesus came, he said “the greatest of these is love.” LOVEGOD. LOVEOTHERS. John the Baptist said I must decrease, so He can increase. There was a shift.
The Bible tells us that some sow, some water, but God gives the increase. The ministry of Care Callers is to be WATERERS. We are singing the Watering Song. If we are singing from a piece of music, we need to be singing the same words, be in the same key and in the same rhythm. Disharmony creates division and confusion, which we know to be not of the Lord.
Does that mean if someone asked about salvation, we wouldn’t talk with them about it? NO! If HE has drawn them to that moment, by all means explain the simplicity of the Gospel. If we repent of our sins, He will cleanse us from all unrighteousness. At this point, it will be tempting to get into doctrine. The reason we discourage this is because Community Church is so diverse, with so many people from so many different backgrounds, this is an opportunity for division. At this point, we refer them to our pastors, so we are all singing from the same page. This is not to devalue any knowledge or training you may have, but simply to promote harmony and unity and avoid confusion and disharmony that can arise when different backgrounds collide.
As a Care Connection Partner, you represent Community Church. Here are a few reminders of what we desire for you and from you. Much of this information comes from the "Leading and Serving At Community," the guideline every volunteer and staff member is asked to follow. If we all strive to do this while we love on our congregation, God will be glorified, and we will enjoy His abundant blessings in this ministry!
- Have an active relationship with the Lord!
- Participate in a Sunday service at least twice a month, if you are physically able.
- Do life and share your heart and burdens with other believers! Model and Lead like Colossians 3:23 says, “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord.” Encourage others to be their best! Hebrews 10:24 say, “And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds.”
- Guard your talk. Ephesians 4:29-32 says, 29 "Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.30 And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. 31 Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice.32 Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you."
