CARE MINISTRY

WE CARE ABOUT YOU

We are committed to care for all people through our prayers, sharing God’s Word, our support, our contact, and our love; recognizing that our care may not remove people’s pain and struggle, but that we communicate God’s presence to each precious soul. We value life from conception to natural death and will see the face of Jesus in our caring both in those we serve and in those who serve us. Together In Christ – Caring for God’s People

re:generation

We all experience brokenness in life. 

At re:generation, we believe that anyone can experience new life and freedom by working through steps of healing given to us by God through the Bible.  All who are tired, broken or hurting are invited to come find recovery in Jesus Christ.

Re:generation is 12-step discipleship through recovery.   By working through these biblical steps within an authentic community, people have found healing from many personal struggles.  (100 Common Struggles).

We know that not everyone who comes to re:generation will enter understanding the Bible or believing in the God of the Bible.  Re:generation is a safe place for anyone to honestly process questions and doubts.  Our prayer is that you will find the same peace that we have found.

Do you want to know more?

Join a Groundwork Group. Groundwork is an important beginning to your recovery journey. For 6 weeks or so you will work through daily lessons, meeting weekly with your group. The lessons are short and meant to give you an opportunity to connect with God and work on your issues. We are confident that as you seek God, apply his word to your life and develop relationships with others, you will find healing, peace, joy and freedom.

God loves you.  He wants to heal you and has a plan for you.  All are welcome.
