care ministries

"Carry one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ."
(Galatians 6:2, NIV)

If you're feeling sad or struggling inside, don't suffer alone. The Care Ministries at Grace Point offer compassionate care to meet you where you most need support, whether in a group setting or one-to-one.

Grace Point offers the following support ministries:

  • GriefShare

    GriefShare is a friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life's most difficult experiences. Most people quickly feel comfortable and accepted in their GriefShare group as they discover there are others who understand the hurt and the loss they are experiencing.

    Don't go through the grieving process alone. We encourage you to email our Care Coordinator, Eileen Hemming, at for more information.

    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 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 Care Ministers can provide them with the focused care, encouragement, and support they need to make it through the crisis. Tell them about the Grace Point Care Ministries!

    Our Care Ministers are There to Care!

    The GP Care Ministries Team has received training to provide high-quality, confidential, one-to-one, Christian care to hurting people. Our ministers meet regularly 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.

  • prayer ministries

    We're convinced that prayer is the lifeblood of ministry. Therefore, we are persuaded that the ministries of Grace Point must start and end with prayer. We are humbly dependent on God for His guidance, provision and blessing in all that we do.

    Prayer is also vitally important in the life of the individual believer. We want the people of Grace Point to become people of prayer, who communicate with God regularly about their own needs, and who intercede often for the needs of others. We pray because God's Word encourages us to do so. We pray in confidence that God hears and answers prayer.
