Care & Counseling

You are not alone

Grace’s Care & Counseling ministry is committed to providing support and encouragement without shame or judgement, and providing practical and spiritual care in times of crisis. While we are a large church, we are committed to caring for each individual. Whether you are looking for counseling, support groups, or in need of a visit or a meal, our ministry is here to ensure no one is left on their own.

If you are facing an emergency situation, please dial 911. For questions or help, please email

The Mercy Team
