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.
