Sometimes It's Hard to Ask for Help
We're brought up to be strong, self-sufficient, independent people. We tend to think that if we ask for help, it is a sign of weakness. So we try to keep our struggles hidden, stuffed deep inside. However, that's not God's plan. Galatians 6:2 says "Bear one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ." God wants us to care for others--and allow others to care for us in our time of need.
If you're sad or struggling inside, don't suffer alone. Ask for help. We've got a team of Barnabas Care Ministers who are ready to listen, care, encourage, pray, and help you through a tough time.
Do You Know Someone Who Is Hurting?
Do you have a friend, neighbor, co-worker, or relative who has been struggling with the loss of a loved one, loneliness, cancer, a layoff, relocation, divorce, a spiritual crisis, recuperation, single parenthood, or any of countless other life challenges? Our Barnabas Care Ministers can provide them with the focused care, encouragement, and support they need to make it through the crisis. Tell them about Barnabas Care Ministry!
Our Barnabas Care Ministers are There to Care!
The team at Barnabas Care Ministry at Grace Point has received 50 hours of training to provide high quality, confidential, one-to-one, Christian care to hurting people. Our Ministers meet weekly with their care receivers to listen, care, encourage, and provide emotional and spiritual support. (Males are matched with males, and females are matched with females.) The caring relationship lasts for as long as the person needs care. It's free, and it's a powerful way you can help a hurting friend.
