We want to pray for you!
Our Lord invites us to come to Him with every concern and joy of our lives through the gift of prayer, and He promises to listen to us as our loving Father. The Apostle John writes, "This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us." [1 John 5:14] As Christ's family, it is an honor to lift one another up in prayer.

Sometimes, living in this sinful world brings deep pain and prolonged suffering to our lives. It is during these times that we can often feel isolated and alone in facing our struggles. Our merciful Savior calls on us to bear one another's burdens [Galatians 6:2] and tenderly invites us to cast our burdens on Him [Psalm 55:22]. If you are in a situation where you could benefit from counsel and support, our pastoral staff stands ready to provide care and guidance. When needed, we can also provide referral to a qualified professional Christian counselor. Always feel free to schedule a confidential appointment with our pastoral staff by calling the pastoral office at 248-402-8020.
