Christian Caregiver Support Network

We supports people who are honoring their mothers and fathers by caring for them as they age. Caregivers receive the empathetic prayer and support they need from other Christian caregivers. One hour group prayer meetings with fellowship afterward encourages sharing of personal experiences as well as one on one prayer, guided by the Holy spirit. We invite occasional speakers for inspiration from our faith community to our meetings and host special events that foster fellowship and camaraderie.

Our mission is to pray for and encourage each other with the World of God and our experience. We pray that Christian members will be restored and those who don’t have a personal relationship with Jesus will give their lives to Him. We also pray that those we care for who don’t know the Lord will see the Light of Christ in us, turn to Him and be saved.
