About Congregational Care
The Congregational Care Ministry offers areas of support for the person searching for hope and healing. Together, we invest in the sowing and harvest of good seeds through biblical teaching and works of compassion. We hope that you will find your place to humbly co-labor with us in service to Jesus Christ, His church, and in the community we live in.
We seek to fulfill this ministry by showing compassion to those in need and providing classes to help those dealing with difficult situations such as grief, divorce, life transitions, or brokenness.

The pastoral staff is available to provide support, encouragement, and direction. Our Stephen Ministry provides trained “Care Givers” who are available after each worship service for prayer and encouragement. “Grace Touch” ministry is available for those in need of a meal when unexpected circumstances arise. Also, our Prayer Ministry is available to intercede and seek the Lord on behalf of the needs one may be facing.

The Bridge: Recovery Ministry
At The Bridge, we meet with individuals, adolescents, couples, and families to provide strategies and resources to help them on their journey towards conflict resolution and managing grief and loss.

OASIS: Older Adults Sharing in Service
OASIS – Older Adults Sharing in Service – is a ministry platform where faith and love grow together as we build community and cultivate hearts for Christ. With an emphasis on Dr. Youssef’s Ten-Year Vision “to reach the next generation with the whole gospel of Jesus Christ,” we desire to create spaces for fellowship, local service work, missions, discipleship, worship, and resources to foster intergenerational worship and life together.
GraceTouch Meals shares the grace and love of our Lord by providing a meal and a personal contact to those in our midst in need of refreshment, care, and encouragement. As a volunteer, you have the opportunity to:
• Cook meals to be taken to families who have a need.

Prayer Ministry involves the expansion of God’s Kingdom through intercession for others. Intercessors may come to the church during the week and pray for the requests that have been received, or they may receive requests via email at home.

If you are faced with life’s challenges and don’t know where to turn, we want to invite you to come forward and let us help you. We tend to struggle and suffer alone, but God desires that we be in relationship with Him and others. We would like to help you identify your unmet needs spiritually, emotionally, relationally, and then offer support and teaching specific to Hope and Healing with the end goal of connecting you deeper into the life of the church as a “worker” of the gospel of peace. Our church mission is to Reach, Equip and Work. We welcome you to join us in the process as we all attempt to live into the fullness of God’s plan for our lives.
