Pastoral Care

Pastoral Care

In different seasons of our lives we may find ourselves struggling with difficulties and realize that we need a little help to press on. As an equipping church, Grace Church views the struggles of our lives as discipleship opportunities – opportunities for us to grow even in the midst of our pain. In providing pastoral care, we seek to provide counseling environments where you can not only find the strength “to make it” but to move forward to a better place in your life and relationship with Jesus. These environments might include short-term pastoral counseling with a pastor or church leader, mentoring, and/or trusted professional counseling.

Understanding Dementia

The number of people with dementia is on the rise, and for each person diagnosed, care is required. In a community the size of the Grace community, there are likely many families caring for a loved one with dementia. Many any are doing it without any education or training, which leaves them vulnerable to confusion, fear, frustration, and ultimately, burn-out. By partnering with the staff of The Gardens, our goal is to equip caregivers to better care for their loved one by better understanding the disease and learning practical strategies to cope with it. We will also share the many local resources available to help families dealing with dementia, whatever their needs many be.

Registration for the Winter 2017 Caregiver training is now closed. For assistance in finding additional caregiver trainings or resources in our area, please email careministries@gracechurchsc.org.

Grief Share

It may be hard for you to feel optimistic about the future right now. If you’ve lost a spouse, child, family member, or friend, you’ve probably found there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel. This can be a confusing time when you feel isolated and have many questions about things you’ve never faced before.

GriefShare groups meet weekly to help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life. Each GriefShare session has three distinct elements:  Video Seminars, Group Discussions, and a Personal Workbook.
