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.
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
