The Care Ministry is available to anyone who needs care.
The PURPOSE of the Littleton Church C.A.R.E.
Ministry is to communicate the inner meaning and action of the Gospel to people at their time of need.
Life can be tough, but you don’t have to go through it alone. We want to help. Whatever you’re facing, we know that the first step to getting past whatever is holding you back is to reach out and talk to someone. WHAT IF SUCCESS IS ONE CONVERSATION AWAY?
Our trained Care Ministers will talk and pray and interact with people about whatever is going on in their life. These newly trained Care Ministers are joining our existing Stephen Ministers in this C.A.R.E MINISTRY.
This new Littleton Church Care Ministry is about:
· LOVING PEOPLE, not centered around issues
· RELATIONSHIPS and PRESENCE, not programs
· FAITH, not fixating and ‘fixing’
The CORE PRINCIPLES of the Littleton Church Care Ministry are:
Faith Matters– It is a PREREQUISITE
Caring Is Sacrificial
Action is Required
If we LOVE, We Care
God is our COMFORTER
Caring is RELATIONAL
The Biblical word NOURISHES
Praying EARNESTLY makes a difference
Caring is “Discipling”
We believe the impact of ministry is often greatest when people are in the midst of a storm, and that’s when they:
· Naturally cry out to God
· Examine their lives
· Question their beliefs
· Are most open and eager to experience the love of Christ

GriefShare is a friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences. You don’t have to go through the grieving process alone.
How GriefShare works
It may be hard for you to feel optimistic about the future right now. If you’ve lost a spouse, child, family member, or friend, you’ve probably found there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel.
This can be a confusing time when you feel isolated and have many questions about things you’ve never faced before.
“Going to GriefShare feels like having warm arms wrapped around you when you’re shivering.”
GriefShare groups meet weekly to help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life. Each GriefShare session has three distinct elements:
