The Council exists as a expression of ecumenical ministry. This allows for powerful witness as we gather in a community of caring with our Cape and Islands neighbors in need.
At our Annual Assembly, representatives of 38 different congregations gathered to support the business of the Council. The group included members from the following types of congregations: Roman Catholic, Methodist, Unitarian Universalist, Covenant, Baptist, Episcopal, Community of Jesus, Pentecostal, Lutheran, Ecumenical Catholic, United Church of Christ, Assembly of God, Presbyterian, Living Hope, and Gateway Christian Center. We included people who worship in Spanish, Portuguese and English. What a gathering!
We work hard to be Community to one another; to reach out, cross boundaries, and share mission and resources. Through our united work, "Serving God by Serving Others", we impact the lives of many thousands of our neighbors, providing practical goods and assistance. We bear witness while offering guidance, hope and comfort.
Thank you for being a part of this Community of Caring.
