Care Ministry

Westbrook Worship - TODAY, Sunday, July 14 at 2:00 pm. You’re invited to enjoy fellowship and participate in worship with the residents of Westbrook Care Facility. Please join us! 401 Platte Clay Way, Kearney.


H.O.P.E (Help Optimism Prayer Encourage) H.O.P.E. Ministry’s mission is to make sure no one in our congregation (or community) faces a serious illness or life transitions without spiritual and practical support. If you are in need of meals, transportation, childcare, someone to talk with, or any other practical means of support.


Stephen Ministry – Life transitions (new home, new baby, divorce, unemployment, etc.) are made easier when there is a compassionate person available to listen and give encouragement. Trained Stephen Ministers are available to do just that!
