“I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me… just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.”
(Matthew 25:36, 40)
As a church, one of the reasons we exist is to care and attend to the personal needs of the individuals who make up our congregation. The People Care Ministry is committed to assisting individuals, marriages, and families to overcome the obstacles in life that prevent them from being all they can be in Christ.

Pastoral Spiritual Counseling
It is important to note that the counseling we provide is strictly pastoral care/spiritual counseling. We do not provide any professional counseling services, but do provide referrals to local counselors and psychologists. For more info, call the church.
This resource is given to couples prior to their wedding. A mentoring couple will walk alongside a couple as they prepare for their wedding. We will officiate weddings that have gone through premarital mentoring. For more info, call the church office.
Many families will face financial hardships from time to time. For Grace attendees, the benevolence fund confidentially assists families experiencing financial hardship. It is used to cover the necessities of life when a family has exhausted all other fund sources. We purposely look at a long-term fix instead of short-term help; therefore we offer financial counseling to those who need it. Individuals meet on a case-by-case basis with the deacons. For questions, call the church office.
