Pastoral care and counseling

Our goals in Pastoral Care are to guide and help individuals discover Christ-centered answers to a wide range of personal, relational, financial or other challenges. We have trained pastors who facilitate a free service for individuals seeking guidance for a variety of issues including marital and family relationships, communication and intimacy, parenting, grief and loss, anger and bitterness, inner personal struggles, and spiritual discouragement. Our volunteers receive extensive training, ongoing supervision, and continuing education.


If you are someone who could benefit from professional counseling, you're not alone! We have many from our congregation who have (and still) meet with our counselors monthly and weekly. If you would like to schedule an appointment or just have some questions answered, please reach out.
