Care Ministries

Everyone has defining moments in their lives — challenging circumstances, relational pain, transitional seasons. How we respond during these times has a direct impact on our future. The Care Ministry provides a network of ministries, helpful resources, trained volunteers, and professional counselors, to help you move forward. We want to provide encouragement and help you make wise decisions in some of life’s most crucial times.

Membership

You’ve been attending.  Why not take the next step?

By now, you have experienced our Sunday morning worship service and hopefully you are interested in learning more about our vision and how you can get involved.

The most effective way to really move into the core of our church family is to participate in a fun, relational four-week group we call First Impressions. You will get an opportunity to meet our pastoral staff and key leaders in a relaxed, casual environment as you enjoy a freshly prepared lunch each week. Most people who attend the group choose to join in church membership.

The First Impressions class is offered quarterly each year.

DivorceCare

Find help and healing for the hurt of separation and divorce. DivorceCare is a friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences. Don’t go through separation or divorce alone.

DivorceCare meets on Monday nights at 7pm at our main campus. Contact Steve Wichern to confirm current group offerings and to receive additional information.

Living Free

Living Free is a discipleship ministry helping men and women get beyond life-controlling issues, damaging behaviors, relationships, and addictions. Living Free will help you identify and overcome the life issues that hinder your walk with God in a safe and friendly environment where confidentiality and anonymity is an iron-clad rule.

Living Free meets on Monday nights at 7pm at our main campus. Contact Steve Wichern to confirm current group offerings and to receive additional information.

Pre-Marital Counseling

Counseling

Sometimes life gets hard and we need a safe place to share our deepest fear, pain, and regret.  Let us help you get connected.

Listen to advice and accept instruction, and in the end you will be wise. Proverbs 19:20

Nobody’s life is perfect. Life is full of ups, downs, and many transitions in-between. Most of the time when we experience challenging situations, we can lean on friends, family members, or our community groups. Sometimes, however, problems become more complex and we need the guidance of professionals.

Whether you are feeling overwhelmed, are going through a life transition, or are struggling in a relationship, we want to help you. Our pastoral staff is available to listen to your story and to provide spiritual guidance and when needed, we can help to connect you to a competent Christian counselor.

Each counselor, therapist, psychologist, and psychiatrist whom we recommend has been carefully screened by our staff for his or her professional expertise, quality of care, and genuine Christian values.

Contact Pastor Barry Simon for more information.
