Care Team exists to come alongside those in the FBCA family in seasons of sorrow, sickness and setbacks. This shows up in a number of ministries that are largely unseen, yet significant. These ministries range from hospital and shut-in visits, to financial help and counseling for those in hard times, to fellowship for the retired and elderly, to a committed prayer team who prays over requests submitted on Sundays and during the week. We also take joy in ministering to those who are grieving, joining them in their immediate sorrow and following up with them weeks, and sometimes months, after their loss.
Will Ruth grew up at First Baptist Church of Alhambra and has been a participant in the preschool, elementary, Jr High, and High School ministries. After serving 18 months at a sister church as their Jr High Pastor, God called him back to FBC Alhambra to work with the youth, with the Wednesday night program as his focal point. He actively works to ensure the transition from the children's ministry to the youth ministry as well as the transition with graduating high schoolers goes seamlessly.
