Community Care

In this challenging and often painful period in our community, knowing where to turn for help can be difficult. This page is intended to make that search easier. At times, it will also include individual needs that you may be able to assist with.

Community Care Fund

We have set up a new Community Care fund to help with needs that arise in our community. To donate via Church Center (online or app), select "Community Care" in the drop-down menu. On Venmo, simply add "Community Care" as a note in your donation.

If you, or someone you know, is in need of financial assistance during this time, please contact Pastor Gunther Kriwinski at .


We offer counseling for areas of need including marriage, family, addiction, and different patterns of abuse. The individuals who provide this service have various areas of training and licensing.
