Christ’s Ambassadors Ready and Equipped...to serve others
Have you ever needed a word of encouragement?
Have you ever been discouraged by events in your life?
Was anyone there for you?
Often, it only takes a kind word or a show of concern to boost the spirit of a discouraged friend, relative or family member. In the book of Acts, 4:36, Luke talks about one of the great encouragers, Barnabas. Barnabas is called a “paraklete”, a Greek word meaning someone who encourages, consoles, comforts, and comes along side another.
Hazel Dell Christian Church is committed through its CARE Ministry to come along side hurting people in need of comfort, consolation, encouragement in three specific areas — marital issues, joblessness, or abuse.
This ministry is available to anyone in the community regardless of whether they attend Hazel Dell Christian Church. Our trained CARE Lay Ministers have similar personal experiences in the three (3) areas and desire to be encouragers to others individuals or couples, like Barnabas.
Our CARE Ministry team will connect you with a CARE Lay Minister who will meet with you for 2-3 sessions, each session lasts between 60 to 90 minutes. There is no cost for these sessions.
All sessions are held strictly confidential and are intended to offer hope and encouragement for you and your family. Sessions are coordinated at Hazel Dell Christian Church at a time and date that is convenient for you and the CARE Lay Minister.
Finding someone who understands what you are going through is difficult. God can help you in your time of need. He doesn’t want us to suffer alone. His help is vital and important to your Spiritual life with Him.
Contact us today and let us serve you and your family the hope that only comes from the Lord. Our CARE Ministry team desires to show you God’s unwavering love and support in your time of need.
