Accepting All with God's Unconditional Love

What is Respite Care??


For the client, respite care is time out of the house to socialize with friends who are welcoming & accepting.

For the caregiver, respite care is time for you that’s worry-free.  Run errands, go out with friends, or just take a nap – its your time, we will take care of your loved one.

Persons of all races, religions, creed and nationality are welcome in this program. 

At this time we are serving adults 18 and above.

There is no fee for this service, but donations are appreciated.

To get started call the church office at (712) 332-2447
