Support + Care
The Caring Ministries at Carlisle BIC exist to release trained and gifted individuals in the church body to care for and support others in the body who are struggling with ongoing or crisis issues, primarily by helping them form a more intimate relationship with God and the church community.

Cancer Companions: Cancer companions, a cancer support group, begins Tuesday, May 19 at 6:30 PM in room 109. Please e-mail Pastor Linda if you plan on attending.
If you have any suggestions to help us facilitate better care, or if you need to find assistance for yourself or a loved one please e-mail our Pastor of Congregational Care, Linda Lambert.
Cancer Companions are caring people who help cancer families get through difficult times. They are caring Christians who are trained to be peer support by helping people cope with cancer in their lives. They do this either through groups or one-to-one.
Whether meeting one-on-one at a coffee ship or gathering with others in a Christian support group, patients, survivors, and their loved ones find the connections they need to draw closer to Christ on their cancer journey.
Cancer Companions are caring people who “”get it.”” One cancer survivor said, “”I have people who love me and care for me but what I need is someone who ‘gets it.'”” Cancer Companions understand the difficulties of cancer treatment and they are ready to listen. Not everyone affected by cancer is the one with cancer. Cancer Companions is there for family and friends, too.
