Pastoral Care

Loving ALL with Care

Celebrating and responding to significant life events is an integral part of loving ALL people into a relationship with Jesus Christ. From births, marriages, hospitalizations, deaths and all of life’s events in between, we are here to help meet your needs. Our trained pastors and staff can provide pastoral counseling, arrange to visit you in the hospital or at home, conduct marriage, funeral and memorial services or simply support you in prayer.

Pastoral Counseling

Throughout life's challenges, you may find yourself in need of confidential pastoral support. Our Pastoral Care team offers spiritual and emotional care for those struggling with issues such as isolation, grief, relationship challenges, addiction, partner abuse and more. Some circumstances may require the care of a licensed professional counselor and we can help you connect you with the resources that meet your need.
