Mercy Carework Ministry

The mission of Mercy Carework is to come alongside those in our congregation and connected to our outreach ministries to wholistically care for them in the midst of their financial, emotional and spiritual needs.  

ACC has a Mercy Fund that is used to help individuals and families who have financial needs.  A team of two Diaconate members will meet with individuals or couples to discuss the specifics of the need(s) and together come up with a plan for assistance.  The team takes confidentiality very seriously.  Examples of expenses that the Mercy Fund can assist with are rent, food, utilities, phone, transportation, counseling, psychiatric care, medical insurance, and medication.

If you would like to meet with a team of two Diaconate members to discuss any needs you have, please email Andrea at or call the church office at 718-721-3440.  The email and phone answering machine is confidential.
