A New Resource for Congregational Care Is Now Available in Spanish
By Patricia Peña
Congregational care is essential, no matter the church size. El ministerio del cuidado congregacional—Guía para la implementación (The Caring Congregation Ministry Implementation Guide) is a resource that will help congregations learn how to build, launch, and sustain a congregational care ministry in – no matter the church’s size, type, or denomination.
This new resource was first developed by Karen Lampe and her team at Church of the Resurrection UMC and was translated into Spanish by Alma Perez, staff of Discipleship Ministries. This resource introduces a practical ministry model that includes tools that will equip laypeople to serve as congregational care ministers for their own congregations and their extended community.
You can find this resource in Spanish at cokesbury.com.
