Care

Creating safe spaces to be known and loved by Jesus and his people

Jesus said, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." (Matthew 11.28)

Christians are on a journey to that rest, in God and eventually in heaven. In the meantime, we always need more of God and often help from others. We want to make sure you get the help you need, whether material, psychological, or spiritual, since it's all related to Christ. 

Whether your story includes sin, conflict, addiction, illness, grief, or any other struggle with sin or suffering, our desire is to care for individuals, couples, and families who are weary from carrying heavy burdens. As you journey toward hope and healing, we seek to live in awareness of God’s presence and together experience his grace through Jesus Christ.

Request Care

Our care team consists of lay counselors and pastors who help people understand their story, suffering, or struggle in light of God's presence and grace. Lay counselors are members who are trained to walk with all kinds of people for about three months to offer support for whatever they're going through.

Care Groups

Our lives and stories are woven together on the journey toward wholeness. Care Groups provide encouraging and supportive relationships along with struggle specific curriculum. Care Groups focus on specific sins, struggles, or suffering while Community Groups focus on holistic discipleship through life together.

Marriage Care and Mentoring

Our desire is to see marriages become increasingly God-centered, Christ-exalting, and Spirit-led. Through pre-marital care and officiating weddings, the care ministry walks alongside couples as they begin marriage.

Weddings and Pre-Marital Care

Meet regularly with another couple who has a little more marriage experience than you for prayer, growth, and mutual encouragement. Couples meet once a month for a year with their mentor couple using the book The Relational Soul by Plass and Cofield as a general guide.
