InReach works within the framework of the ministry of Jesus Christ to provide care to those facing life's spiritual, emotional, and physical challenges. Using church and community resources, this ministry responds to real-life needs through lay-led care teams supported by our rector. We offer confidential compassion in times of need as well as creating a web of multi-generational support to all of our members and their families.
