Pastoral Care

Jesus designed His Church to be a place of genuine love, help, and ultimate healing. We want you to know we are here for you in a variety of ways, including providing a pastor or care ministry staff for you to talk to when you need it.

This is not certified counseling, just a listening ear to offer pastoral care and support. We are offering 50 minute zoom sessions with no cost and no paperwork. Appointments are required. Contact the staff member you would like an appointment with directly.
