Parish Care Teams

Central’s diaconate is launching a new initiative called “Central Care Teams.” Each team is composed of 2-4 deacons that are assigned to a particular Central Parish. These teams will lead the church’s caring and support efforts by:

  • coordinating meal-trains & communicating other care-related needs to the parish
  • scheduling and coordinating care visits and in-home communion,
  • assisting in funerals and memorial services
  • and participating in the planning for Maundy Thursday in-home worship services.


The Care Teams will collaborate with current Parish Coordinators and the Pastoral Staff. For more information, you may contact Eleanor Dake and Amy Covin.

The Care Teams for 2021-2022 are:

Decatur – Ed Carwile, Eleanor Dake, and Rob Forbes.
Northern Lights – Vicki Collier, Ginger Heidbreder, Zac Hilimire, and Brian Bishop.
In-Town South – Linda Lehfeldt, Ben Sutton, Sandy Hoke, Amy Covin*, and Phillip Covin*.
