Sometimes life events throw us into unknown territory and we find ourselves beyond our capacity and unable to see our next steps. Pastoral care is a healthy dose of truth, love, guidance, freedom, and healing that we offer to all our church members. It is the heart of our church to lead people to what Christ offers in trying times! Together with a strong network of industry professionals and leaders in our church, we help people navigate through seasons of trial into greater faith.

What is Pastoral Care?

“Be shepherds of God’s flock that is under your care, serving as overseers-not because you must, but because you are willing, as God wants you to be; not greedy for money, but eager to serve; not lording it over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock. And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that will never fade away.” 1 Peter 5:2-4
Prayer Requests & Praise Reports
Your prayer request will go into our weekend service prayer booklet called, “The Book of Miracles”. Every week our entire church prays for the prayer requests submitted. We are excited to stand with you in prayer, believing for the miraculous through each submission. Click below to submit a praise report. We look forward to hearing your good report!
