GRACE CARES

We are committed to care for everyone God brings our way, and our desire is that no one would get lost or go unnoticed. If you desire help and support as you go through a challenging time in your life, we invite you to participate in a care group, support group, or ministry specifically designed to address your challenge. See what we have available by browsing the options below. You were not meant to travel through life alone. We hope you will honor us by allowing us to join you on your journey. Someone is here for you just a phone call or an email away.

Grace Cares during the Coronavirus Pandemic

He comes alongside us when we go through hard times, and before you know it, he brings us alongside someone else who is going through hard times so that we can be there for that person just as God was there for us.

2 Corinthians 1:4

Can Grace Cares Help?

We are facing circumstances like we have never experienced before.  This uncertainty can cause anxiety and fear.  Our hope is that Grace can be a source of care and encouragement to help ease those fears.  All of us will be experiencing different needs in the coming days.  If there is something that you are experiencing and think we can help, please complete the form below.  While we cannot provide everything, we will do our best to come alongside of you as we can.

Love your neighbor

Our response to the COVID-19 crisis we are facing can cause us to isolate and self-protect.  While we are following the recommendations that the government has set out for us, we also want to be the Church.  Our doors may be closed physically but now is the time for us more than ever to be Grace in our neighborhoods and the region we have been called to.  Fill out the form below to sign up to help Grace Cares come along side our community in the days ahead.

Resource Information

Here are some community resources that we have gathered and will continue to update in the coming weeks.

Prayer

Prayer is the power source for everything God chooses to do through us. Our elders and a team of called, trained, and compassionate prayer ministers are eager to privately pray with you in a variety of ways, whether you are sick, struggling with a life issue, or simply want prayer for yourself or a loved one.

Lay counseling

For over 35 years, Grace has invested in the training of spiritually-gifted individuals and prepared them to serve our congregation as lay counselors. These volunteers go through a 2-year training program involving biblical and clinical preparation. These lay counselors offer counseling to Grace attendees age 18+ free of charge. We aim to follow Jesus’ mission and core focus to administer healing to the hurting and broken-hearted and those needing a compassionate touch of God’s grace and mercy in their greatest time of need.

PASTORAL CARE

We offer Pastoral Care to our congregation including funerals, hospital visits and crisis care.

Marriage Enrichment

Grace has partnered with Sparrow Ministries to help couples thrive through the unfolding adventure of their marriage. From a Christ-centered perspective, we offer interactive workshops, couple-to-couple coaching, and helpful tools for strengthening marriages.

Divorce Care

Divorce Care is a divorce recovery support group where you can find help and healing with a caring group of people who will walk alongside you through life’s most difficult experiences. Don’t go through separation or divorce alone.
