In every situation, our desire is to assess the true needs of each member and their family and provide the necessary coordination of care and encouragement by using a member-to-member approach.
Scripture commands that we are to love and care for the members of the body of Christ. In obedience, we seek to coordinate meeting the needs of Center Grove members regarding: hospitalizations and surgeries, births, death and bereavement, counseling and benevolence.
If the need is critical, please call the Member Care line to reach the pastor on call.
“And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ…” Ephesians 4:11-12
We find many times in the Bible that God commands His people to pray. Our Lord Jesus give us the example of going to a solitary place to pray to the Father. Prayer is how we communicate with God; it allows us to worship, praise, and make requests of our Creator. It is privilege and joy to pray for each other.

It’s our desire to help you find the best care possible. The office of Pastoral Ministry actively seeks to meet the counseling needs of our church family through our own trained staff as well as with local Christian counseling partners.
If you are curious about counseling, our experienced staff members are ready to help provide spiritual wisdom and guidance.If you would like more information about faith-based licensed counselors, we would be glad to share our recommendations and provide a referral.

Support groups are small peer groups for those walking through a difficult season of life. They provide a safe, confidential environment where members develop insight and acquire tools to assist in coping and walking through challenging seasons.
GriefShare is a support group that helps individuals who are experiencing grief after the loss of a loved one. In this group, you will learn healthy ways of coping with grief and all its unpredictability. Center Grove hosts a GriefShare group twice a year. Use the GriefShare website to register for the next session or a session meeting at another location near you.
We believe the most effective approach to caring for Christ's church is to prepare the people for the work of ministry. This means that our goal is to equip church members to provide care and comfort to those who are hospitalized, grieving, seeking counseling, or in need of financial assistance.
If you are interested in serving on our Member Care team, please contact our Member Care leader Mitch Monroe at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Benevolence exists for members of our church family who face times of financial hardship. We seek to address immediate needs by providing for basic necessities utilizing the resources available within our church and the community.
In every situation, our desire is to direct the family or person toward financial self-sufficiency while seeking to minister to their personal and spiritual needs. Ultimately, our goal is to point each person toward their need for Christ and their need to obey His commands as it relates to their current situation.
If you’re seeking financial assistance, begin by completing our confidential benevolence form below.
After completing this form, it will be reviewed by the benevolence team. You may be contacted if more information is needed, and can expect to be contacted with a decision from the team within two weeks.
