Caring People=Transformed People
Among all of the other things that Christ is, he was a healer. He modeled for us that we are called to heal people, and not just people within our fellowship. Jesus healed all people that were brought to him. He sends the disciples out to heal people. This series is designed to be the launch pad for group of volunteer congregational care ministers who assist the pastor in caring ministries in the church. It is my hope that after this series we will have 3-5 volunteers who will recognize God’s call on their life to be congregational care ministers.

Sermon Title: “Jesus Sends Us Out to Care and Heal”

The work of caring for people is not limited to just one or two people in the congregation. Jesus recognized this and sent seventy-two out to heal the sick, cast out demons, and care for people.
