When you’re hurting, it’s difficult to focus on anything other than the pain. Whether it’s a conflict in your marriage, an addiction, a death in the family, or another emotionally difficult issue, life can quickly become unmanageable. The Care Ministry is here to help people proactively grow as individuals and as couples and also to provide assistance for those seasons in life when you need someone to lean on.
There is POWER in coming together as a community to PRAY. We will have stations that will guide you through several opportunities to pray for family, friends, the church, our world and anything you need healing from. Come as your schedule allows.
At GFC, support groups are offered to give you a chance to recover from the curveballs of life, and to experience our “hand’s on” God who cares about what’s really going on in your life. Most of the support groups are now closed for registration except those highlighted below. To register for these groups, click on the group name. Registration will be available starting August 25th.

What is Soul Care? Everyone longs to be known, explored, discovered and touched. Soul Care is a relationship with a trained leader who is willing to come alongside you when life gets hard. Through one on one meetings your Soul Care provider will simply listen, encourage, support and be with you wherever you are on life’s road.
This ministry provides pastoral counseling to those in need.
- In times of loss, we will be there to give you ministerial guidance for funerals.
- In times of crisis, we want to be a support to you through compassionate listening and giving you guidance that hopefully will help you through this crisis.
- Premarital counseling is given to couples prior to their wedding.
- We will officiate weddings that have gone through premarital counseling.
As a part of the Care Ministry, we have a team of trained, caring volunteers that are available to visit shut-ins and loved ones of Grace Family members or regular attendees who are in a hospital or in hospice care.
