care ministries

Care Ministries shows the love of Jesus by serving the needs of those in our community who are suffering from the challenges of the broken world in which we live. It is our desire to offer care in ways that touch hurting lives, to encourage them in love to deepen their relationship with God and others.




We want to connect you to people that can come alongside you, support you, and comfort you during some of life’s most trying obstacles. We offer support groups for:

  • Cancer & Cancer Care
  • Debt
  • Grief
  • Divorce
  • Addictions
  • Widows


We would love to connect you to a local Christian counselor to help you talk through tough times. Contact the Care Center so that we can put you in touch with available counselors.



Thursdays, March 15—June 21

GriefShare is a friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you as you grieve the death of a family member or friend. You don’t have to go through the grieving process alone.

You are welcome to begin attending the GriefShare group at any session. Each GriefShare session has three distinct elements: a video seminar with experts, support group discussion, and personal study and reflection. Each session is “self-contained,” so you do not have to attend in sequence. You will find encouragement and help whenever you begin.

The leadership team for GriefShare consists of people who understand how you feel and have a real concern for individuals experiencing the grief of loss. Most GriefShare leaders have experienced significant losses in their lives and are examples of the healing and restoration that can occur as an outgrowth of deep grief.
