Support & Counseling

We Can Help

Immediate Needs 

If you have a mental, emotional or physical emergency, including suicidal thoughts, please call 911 immediately to receive help. If you would like emotional and spiritual support due to an emergency hospitalization or death in your family, please call the church at 317.848.2722 and follow the prompts to reach the staff member on call.

Care Foundations

God & Prayer

It is vital to do first things first. Please invite God into your life difficulties through prayer. Ask for His guidance, wisdom, and comfort as you embark on this journey of challenge, growth, and healing. At the conclusion of each service, there is also an opportunity to meet with someone for prayer, encouragement and next step recommendations.

Small Group Community

Grace provides many opportunities to connect with small groups which provide an environment for deep relational connection and support.  Apart from God, no one can walk alongside you in your times of need more effectively than those whom which you regularly do life.

Care Appointments

Grace wants to connect with you personally. We believe that face to face interactions provide the most effective way to show compassion and ignite transformation. Schedule an appointment during the week to meet with one of our Care Ministry Team Members for prayer, encouragement, and resource recommendations.
