– CARE –

In the midst of our struggles and brokenness, we do not have to walk alone.

Life is full of joys, sorrows, struggles and loss. At Grace Road Church, we don't want you feeling alone when you face new seasons or difficult times. We care deeply about these things and how they affect your life, and we desire to care for you, walk with you, celebrate and mourn, and help you through each step.

We believe that as the body of Christ, God has called us to bear one another's burdens. One way we do this is through our pastoral care services. At Grace Road, we have several options available for anyone who is looking for support, counseling, benevolence or simply someone to talk to.

Recently engaged? If you desire pre-marital counseling, let us know and we can make arrangements to meet with you and your fiance as you prepare for marriage.

Are you facing marital struggles? Unexpected trials? Grief? Addictions or sin patterns that seem impossible to break? Are there bills you can't pay or does it seem you can't ever get on top of your bank account? No matter what it is you're facing, through Compassion Groups, Mental Health Groups, or through one-on-one care or counseling, we want to give you opportunities to find hope and freedom. Our pastors are available to meet and discuss any or all of these topics. Specifically, our Director of Care Carl Binger has a master’s degree in mental health counseling and his heart is to care for the family of believers at Grace Road and the local community in the Rochester region.

We also recognize that there are some women's topics in which seeing a male pastor may not be your preferred choice. We have other options available. If you would prefer a referral to a Christian female licensed mental health counselor (who we know and recommend at no cost to you), or would like to be connected to a woman who is available for one-on-one care, please let us know.

If you are interested, please fill out the Care Request Form. Once you have submitted this form, we will follow up with you as soon as we can. Also, we ask that you review the Informed Consent Form. If possible, please print, sign and initial where indicated. Please bring this form to your first meeting. When we meet, we will review this and answer any questions you may have before getting started.

If you would like more information, please contact our Director of Care.
