THE BEREAVEMENT CARE TEAM
The Bereavement team serves GCC members who have an immediate (father, mother, spouse, sibling or child) death in the family. The Bereavement Team will be available to assist primarily in the area of making phone calls, providing meals, accompanying them to the funeral home for support and prayer, and serving at the repast if it is held at GCC. Assigned Bereavement Team members will also walk with GCC members through their difficult time of grief.
THE GRIEF SHARE CARE TEAM
Grief Share provides monthly fellowship and grief support for GCC members who are recovering from the loss of a loved one.
THE MILITARY CARE TEAM
“Honoring Those Who Serve Our Nation and Supporting Military Families”. The Military Outreach Group, “MOG”, provides support to our military members, deployed civilian personnel and their families. This group is comprised of active military, veterans, military families and those who have a heart to support the military. We meet monthly for fellowship, send care package to our deployed members, and conduct outreach to military organizations in the Northern Virginia and Metro DC area.
MEALS ON WHEELS CARE TEAM
Meals on Wheels provide meals to members of Grace Covenant Church that are in need of assistance, due to a death in the family, a new baby, illness, surgery and life adversities. Meals are purchased fully cooked and delivered to those that are in need.
THE SENIORS CARE TEAM
The Seniors Care Team is comprised of active adults aged 55+, who do Kingdom work. They serve our church community by assisting the Care Ministry with hospital and home visitations, providing inter-generational support to Kid Builders and LFT Youth, and assisting other ministries when requested.
CANCER SUPPORT CARE TEAM
The Cancer Support Team creates an atmosphere for survivors to uplift others going through the cancer journey. The support group meets twice a month, on the 2nd Wednesday and 4th Wednesday of each month, from 6pm-7pm. The 2nd Wednesday of the month will be open only to survivors and people experiencing cancer. The 4th Wednesday of each month will be open to survivors, caregivers, family members, and others who are interested in the ministry of assisting people experiencing cancer, etc.
THE LIVE WELL MINISTRY CARE TEAM
The Live Well Ministry encourages and promotes one’s health of body, mind, and spirit, through our Heavenly Father, by prayer and education for our church family and community.
1 Samuel 25:6 – "Say to him: 'Long life to you! Good health to you and your household! And good health to all that is yours.' "
THE NEW BABY CARE TEAM
Celebrating the birth or adoption of a new child, is both an honor as well as a life changer. The New Baby Team is here to provide the service you need. In addition to providing meals, NBT offers much wisdom in regard to parenting skills. We draw not from experience alone, but from the knowledge of hundreds of parents who have successfully navigated the challenging aspect of parenting.
THE DIVORCE CARE TEAM
A divorce can often times be a season of uncertainty, heartbreak and despair. Divorce Care is available through our Life Transitions Class, compelling those who are divorced to receive restoration and walk into their destinies.
ADVANCING THROUGH ADVERSITY CARE TEAM
Many transitions in life bring forth adversity. The Advancing through Adversity Team hosts a bi-annual, Bible-based study, teaching GCC members how to advance through adversity, by walking in the wisdom of God.
