Care and Counseling
C A R E
(Compassion, Awareness, Redemption & Empathy)
Our mission is to offer CARE to the family of God and to our community.
We do this through a number of ministries which are detailed below. We endeavor to show CARE (Compassion, Awareness, Redemption and Empathy) to those we serve.
When we are broken and broken-hearted, we need the compassion of a loving God (Psalm 116:5); the awareness of our deepest need (Rom. 3:23); an understanding of the redemptive heart of God (Col. 1:13-14) and someone to partner with us who will demonstrate empathy (2 Tim. 3:16).
