2018 Mission of the Months
february: cancer support ministry
first sunday of the month, 7:00p - 8:00p
Blankets, Survivor Lunch, and Cancer Support Ministry
Cottonwood Creek Cancer Care Ministry seeks to offer God’s hope and love through spiritual, emotional, and practical support for cancer patients and their families facing the challenges associated with every type of cancer.
We feel the need is that we recognize that a cancer diagnosis can be overwhelming. The support we offer is designed to help families navigate every phase of cancer and face the challenges associated with the diagnosis. Being part of a support group means you do not have to face cancer alone. Many of the individuals involved are cancer survivors and caregivers who understand firsthand what patients and their families go through.
The Cancer Support Ministry meets on the first Sunday of the month in Game Plan Center at 7:00p.
march: ignite week
saturday, march 17-saturday, march 24
IGNITE Week 2017 was a huge success! Over 500 Cottonwood Creek volunteers cared for our community by serving with 22 local organizations and ministries. We ministered to the homeless, fatherless, impoverished, disabled, immigrants, and children. Let’s make it happen again in 2018!
We have so many opportunities to serve our community going forward! We want to IGNITE you to continue showing the love of Christ in your community by getting plugged into a local ministry.
