Journey offers Pastoral Care in three different areas:
- Spiritual Care (one-on-one)
- Care Groups
- Equipping yourself and helping others
Not Alone Ministry
Spiritual Care (NotAlone Ministry) is a one-on-one conversation where life’s challenging issues can be addressed. It provides biblically-based guidance for the purpose of healing, restoration, and living lives honoring to God, in a safe and caring environment. We want you to know you are Not Alone. Topics of discussion may include: marriage, parenting, anger, depression, abuse, fear, grief, addictions and more. There is no cost to receive Spiritual Care. Spiritual Care does not provide professional counseling, however we are happy to provide you with referrals.
Care Groups provide a place where you can connect with God and others who are facing similar trials and issues in life. We are here to help.
