CARE

Caring Community

At Reach Church, we recognize the amazing responsibility we have as followers of Jesus to care for the needs of people. With a strong commitment to walking alongside others through life's challenges, we offer a number of tremendous resources in hopes of effectively caring for our community including:

Upper Room Professional Counseling Center exists to provide hope and healing through individual, marriage, family, and group mental health counseling services that are biblically based and met with decades of experience and education where quality mental health care is concerned.

 

Whether individual counseling, marriage and family, group therapy, and more, we offer a wide range of professional support.

Stephen Ministry is a ministry in our congregation in which trained and supervised laypeople, called Stephen Ministers, provide one-to-one Christian care to individuals facing life challenges. Stephen Ministers are caring Christians who listen, understand, accept, and pray for and with care receivers who are working through a difficult time in life. Their role is to listen and care, not to give advice. Stephen Ministers are also trained to recognize when a care receiver’s needs fall outside what they are equipped to provide—at which point they help connect the care receiver with the appropriate outside resource.

GriefShare is for people grieving the death of a family member or friend. We understand that there are other losses in life that create feelings of grief. You might be experiencing a job loss, a divorce, estrangement from a child, or the loss of friends because of a move. This grief is real, but it is not the kind of grief discussed in GriefShare sessions. We encourage you to ask a pastor, counselor, or church leader for help in finding resources that will be of specific help in your situation.

A mental illness seems to rob you of your future hopes and dreams, and hopelessness begins to take over.

 

The doctor, the therapist, and medicine are not enough in learning how to live life in spite of having a mental health challenge. Those with lived experience (peers) can model and empower one another. As peers, we believe there is hope, and it is possible to live well because we have been there. We guide and support those with a mental illness, along with their loved ones, to find hope that is based upon research; that they and their loved ones might have hopes and dreams again, so they live a faith-filled, full, and vibrant life.

Since the early 1990’s, the Washington County Ministerial Association (WCMA) has maintained the Good Samaritan Fund to provide short-term assistance to individuals in critical need, commonly providing rental and/or utility assistance during times of crisis, and particularly in extreme weather months.

The Joseph's Coat thrift store is designed to make affordable clothing and household items available to the community. In turn, all proceeds from the thrift store are used to stock the food pantry for those in crisis situations.
