Compassion Ministry

Also called Mercy Ministry, Compassion Ministry cares for others with intentionality, whether in prisons, in hospitals, on the streets, in bereavement, or recovering from addiction. These ministries of the church show the love of Christ by caring for the physical and emotional needs of our neighbors.
