There are times when you need someone to listen, to be present, to be an advocate. Although we are a large congregation, it is the Care Ministry’s mission to provide care and support to families and individuals in a personal and compassionate way and to provide an atmosphere and opportunity to sense God’s presence and provision.
Here is a brief overview of the Reid Temple Care Ministries:
CANCER SUPPORT MINISTRY
“Celebrating the promises of God!”
The members of Reid Temple’s Cancer Support Group Ministry provide Christian comfort and compassionate spiritual support to persons whose lives have been touched by cancer. They organize and coordinate cancer prevention workshops and awareness events, maintain a cancer information clearinghouse, and work with national and local health organizations to develop useful resource tools for cancer patients, survivors, caregivers, family members, and friends.Contact
This ministry meets every 4th Thursday at 7:00pm on the Reid Temple-Glenn Dale Campus.

PATHWAYS FOR LIFE MINISTRY: HIV/AIDS
Reid Temple’s Pathway to Life Ministry is dedicated to empowering the members of our church and the broader community to eliminate the scourge of HIV/AIDS. Through education and service, this ministry provides a broad range of supports to people with HIV/AIDS, their caretakers, spouses, partners, children, and others—without regard to their sexual orientation, age, race, disability, or financial status. Pathway to Life ministers offer prayer and spiritual guidance to anyone infected or affected by HIV/AIDS. They also conduct HIV/AIDS prevention education activities for youth and adults; develop and distribute HIV/AIDS awareness materials; and make referrals for medical, mental health, and social services.
This ministry meets every 4th Tuesday at 7:00pm on the Reid Temple-Glenn Dale Campus.
