As part of the Body of Christ here at PHUMC, our members are very dear to us. When one member of the body suffers, the whole body suffers. When one member of the body rejoices, the whole body rejoices (1 Corinthians 12:26). The mission of PHUMC Congregational Care is to walk with the members of the congregation through life’s journey, offering love, support, encouragement, and hope.

This group is set to bring together women who are going through the trials of cancer in a loving, supportive Chrisitan atmosphere.
