KNOLLWOOD CARES

 

Knollwood Cares is a ministry of congregational care. It unites the diaconate, the congregation, and the staff in ministry teams designed to meet specific needs of our church family.

Every Knollwood member is invited to find a place of service on a team. You can make a real difference in the lives of others and be blessed and encouraged in your own journey of faith. Please join us as we serve together.  Training and support will be provided as needed.


Members are encouraged to let the church office know of needs, 336-725-1343.

Reconnections Team

Captain: Katy Boles

This team helps the church to stay in touch with church members or families who, for a variety of reasons, are not presently active in the life of the church. We simply want to let those with extended absences know they have been missed. This is primarily a telephone ministry.

 

Transportation Team

Captain:  Renee Hinson 

This team functions to provide transportation to and from Sunday morning church services as requested by church members. By placing team members into groups, the responsibility for the transport of any one member can be rotated.
