When you're hurting, it's difficult to focus on anything other than the pain.

Whether it's a conflict in your marriage, an addiction, a death in the family, or another emotionally difficult issue, life can quickly become unmanageable. We're here to provide assistance for the seasons when you need someone to lean on.

For after-hours emergency pastoral care call 952-854-1100 and press 2.

Each evening consists of a 10–12-min. video followed by group discussion. Based on Beyond The Broken Heart by Julie Yarbrough.

Questions? Philip Cameron 

Isolation, uncertainty from lack of employment, pandemic, social upheaval, and just loneliness has taken a toll. We're here to provide prayer and support when you need it the most.

If you or someone you know would benefit from meeting with someone who can listen, pray, and help by mentoring you through an issue, check out our Prayer Support ministry today.


Your church family is here to weather the storms and celebrate the victories with you through prayer. Use our prayer wall to submit a prayer request so we know how to pray for you!
