Care and Support

Grace Church desires to continually grow in how we care for those in need and who are hurting. The Bible calls us to love God and to care for the needs of others. In faithfulness and obedience to His Word, we work to address the tangible needs of individuals, couples, and families in our church and in our community.

We offer many kinds of care and support, such as marriage enrichment, financial training, intercessory prayer, assistance with biblical conflict resolution, and aid during difficult circumstances. Our goal is to provide opportunities for each person — at every season of life and despite pressing demands — to learn to pursue God in prayer, seek wisdom in biblical counsel, and grow in the midst of difficult trials.

The Care and Support Ministry at Grace Church focuses around four key areas:

Support and Care

We are committed to strengthening marriages and families, prioritizing our impact on children through age 18, and bringing the message of Christ to our community. Our Thursday Care Nights also offer a variety of support groups. Find out more info about groups.

Visitation

Pastors and members of the visitation team are available to visit our members who are hospitalized or homebound. Individuals are also advised to call our Care Team at 952-224-3000 to make a visitation request.

Biblical Care and Counseling

Our goal is to help people meet the challenges of life in a way that honors the Lord and allows them to discover His plan for their lives. We rely on the knowledge of God’s Word and an understanding of ministering to people as we help individuals who are facing difficulties, trials, and suffering.

Biblical Counseling is the process where the Bible, God’s Word, is related individually to a person who is struggling under the weight of personal sin or difficulties with suffering so that he/she might genuinely change to be pleasing to God.

We believe that the Bible provides thorough guidance and instruction for faith and Life (2 Peter 1:3, Romans 15:4). Therefore, our counseling is based on scriptural principals.

Our counseling practice includes the importance of prayer, dependence on God, a thorough knowledge of the Word of God, and an understanding of ministering to people.

Our Biblical Counseling goal is to help you meet the challenges of life in a way that will honor the Lord, allowing you to enjoy His love and discover His plans for life.

If you are interested in promoting personal change in your life focused on Christ, we invite you to contact us at 952-224-3023.

Prayer

Intercessory prayer teams meet throughout the week, lifting individual prayer requests to the Lord. Individuals are invited to meet privately with trained prayer supporters at the conclusion of most Sunday worship services. Anointing for healing and pastoral counseling is available by appointment. Submit a prayer request by:

Biblical Counseling Training Conference

Grace Church and Faith Biblical Counseling provide the tools and education you need to help others arise victorious over the burdens of life. Learn to support people as they transform their marriages, heal broken relationships, and overcome sin.

You don't need to be a pastor, minister, or church employee to participate. You just need a compassionate heart and a sincere desire to point someone who is hurting toward Jesus through lessons found in the Bible.

Three Central Beliefs of Biblical Counseling

  1. The Bible is the authoritative source by which all truth must be evaluated.
  2. When properly interpreted, the Bible reveals how a believer can please the Lord, and live in a God-honoring way regardless of their circumstances.
  3. A genuine change of heart is totally dependent on the ministry of the Holy Spirit.

  • Become Equipped: to console with more compassionate, Bible-centered, practical instruction.
