Life can throw different challenges at us! Sometimes we face situations that are confusing or too large for us to handle alone. We might just need someone to come alongside us and help us sort through the puzzle pieces of life. Our lay-counseling ministry does just that.
Our Lay-counselors are not professional counselors but are godly and gifted men and women who are non-judgmental, compassionate, and caring individuals. They understand the truth of God’s Word (the Bible) and how it can be applied to everyday life. They understand the power of God to heal the inner self and redeem situations. They are great listeners and want to walk with you through your presented needs while offering hope in Christ. Our free Lay-counseling sessions are 50 minutes long in a comfortable, private room at our church.
