Care Groups & Courses

We believe that we are not designed to do life on our own. Instead, we are meant to live in community – loving one another and following Jesus together.

One-to-One Care

Are you going through a difficult time and need someone to care, listen and share God’s love with you, one-on-one and confidentially? Are you hurting due to loss of a spouse, retirement, loneliness, unemployment, despair, childbirth, hospitalization, grief, separation and divorce, terminal illness, being shut in, faith issues or other problems? If so, a One-to-One Caregiver could help.

One-to-One Caregivers are trained, caring volunteers who have responded to Christ’s call to “carry each others’ burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.” One-to-One Care provides you with someone who cares, supports, listens, shares, and prays.

A One-to-One Caregiver is:

    • A Christ-follower who walks beside a hurting person
    • A caring Christian who listens and supports
    • A volunteer who has received 50 hours of training in how to provide compassionate care

A One-to-One Caregiver is not:

    • A counselor, therapist, or mental health professional
    • A person who will solve all your problems
