Ways We Care

"Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ."
- Galatians 6:2
When you are faced with the trials of life, there are just two choices: Navigate the storm on your own, or allow others to make the journey with you. That's what our Care Ministry is all about. Whether you are caring for a relative suffering from Alzheimer's Disease, dealing with the recent death of a loved one, battling an addiction, or grieving the loss of your marriage to divorce, we can help you move from hurting to healing.

At Custer Road UMC, we care for one another. When challenging or difficult circumstances arise, we are a family. We support and love each other through all sorts of circumstances. From our Stephen Ministers to our various support groups, we have a place for you in our Care Ministry community.
