The Care Ministry provides help to those hurting so they can find healing and hope. We accomplish these goals through multiple ministries, including counseling, support groups, and prayer. As you look through the Care Ministry pages you will find detailed explanations about our various ministries, how they can be of help to you, and how you can be a part of them as we serve our community and church members.

Counseling

Counseling is provided for depression, anxiety, relationship issues, anger management, seeking God, or anything that concerns you. An effort is always made to pair you with a team member who is experienced in your specific need. Counseling is available in individual, couple, and family sessions to anyone in the church or our community. All appointments are confidential, kept in a timely manner, and run approximately 45 minutes.

Celebrate Recovery
Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-centered and biblically based 12-step recovery program focusing on God’s healing power through fellowship with others. By working the 12 steps and the 8 Beatitude Principles, issue groups open up, share experiences, and explore hope. At Celebrate Recovery, we discover and heal from the hurts, habits and hang-ups that keep us from experiencing God and living well with others.

  • Hurts: The feeling of being hurt is an emotional reaction to another person’s behavior, or to a disturbing situation (abandonment, co-dependency, divorce or relationship issues).
  • Habits: A habit is an addiction to someone or something (food, gambling, sex, shopping, relationships, pornography, abuse, smoking, money, alcohol or drugs).
  • Hang-ups: Negative mental attitudes that are used to cope with people or adversity (anger, depression, un-forgiveness).

Are you a prayer warrior? 

Every Sunday, during each service, volunteers pray for God’s guiding hand to be with those attending a LifeBridge worship service, as well as for those leading and speaking at our services. “For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them.” -Matthew 18:20.
