Care and Counseling



We believe strong marriages are at the core of strong families, so we strive to support couples as they work to strengthen their marriages or heal wounds that are causing challenges.  As married couples, you will have the opportunity to attend conferences or events during the year that help you focus on your marriage.  In addition, we have trained marriage mentors who are willing to walk alongside you and your spouse to help you strengthen your relationship or help you navigate a challenging season.  Visit our Marriage Ministry page to learn more.

Lay Counseling

Trained lay counselors disciple and counsel people who are struggling with life's challenges, such as relational and emotional difficulties.  Our counselors help people recognize - and walk in - the freedom they have in Christ Jesus through a Bible-based approach.

If you are interested in learning more about or to begin the process of receiving lay counseling, contact Corrine Brannaka at .  


 We believe in the power of prayer and submitting to the will of God.  We pray individually, as a staff and as a church family through PrayerLife (Wednesdays at 6:45pm in the Nook, September through mid-May).

To request prayer: drop a note into the offering plate on Sunday mornings or call the church office to speak with someone or leave a message during off-hours.

Visitation Team

 Our visitation team reaches out to people who are in local hospitals or home bound to offer comfort, encouragement, support, and prayer for them and their loved ones.

If you know someone who would be blessed by one of these visits, or if you are interested in joining one of our visitation teams, contact Corrine Brannaka at  or call the church office.

Prayer Shawls

 This ministry prepares hand crocheted or knitted shawls in an array of beautiful colors and soft yarns.  These shawls are bathed in prayer as they are created and prayed over by members of this group.  They are available for you to give to someone in need of encouragement.

If you know someone in our church body, community, or even across the country who would be blessed by receiving some encouragement in a time of hardship or grief, we will provide you with a shawl and personalized card for delivery.

If you are interested in making shawls or receiving one, please contact Abigail at .
