We all have defining moments in our lives, challenging circumstances, relational pain and transitional seasons… how we react during these times has a direct impact on our future. We want to do life with you and be there through the good and through the challenging times, with a goal of providing you with helpful resources that will encourage you during the twists and turns of life. Our various support groups are made up of caring people interested in the support of others who are facing the challenges of life! It is our desire to present the love of Jesus Christ as the true source of hope and healing for those of us who are struggling. Please feel free to contact our Care & Support Ministry Team Leader, Mike Schultz with questions.
Our Care & Support Groups
Throughout the ages, God’s plan and desire has been for a husband and wife to remain married for life and to raise up their children to know Him, love Him, and to walk in His ways. At Creekside, we are very interested in preserving and strengthening marriages through our Marriage Mentoring Ministry. This couple-to-couple coaching ministry aims to help support and build stronger marriages in our church and community. In a private and comfortable setting, willing and trained volunteer mentor couples will meet with couples that are struggling, in crisis or need help making Christ the center of their marriage. Over a period of weeks together, we will go through a step-by-step marriage strengthening process-based firmly on the Bible and what God says about marriage, relationships and your personal relationship with Him. The goal is to make your personal relationship with Jesus your number one priority! This will then impact all the other relationships in your life, especially the marital relationship with your spouse. To learn more about how we can partner with you to strengthen your marriage, please contact Mike & Tina Schultz.
