Caring Ministries

Your concerns are our concerns.

Part of Living Deeply is caring deeply. The leadership of Cedar Springs — our elders, deacons, and staff — want to connect you with help and support, whether it’s through providing pastoral care, connecting you to a caregiver in Stephen Ministry, or referring you to a professional counselor in our community. Please follow the links below to reach a ministry leader who would love to help you navigate your difficulty.

Stephen Ministry

Stephen Ministry is a lay care ministry in which trained congregation members – called Stephen Ministers – provide one-on-one Christ-centered care to those who are experiencing something difficult such as grief, job loss, or chronic illness. Typically a Stephen Minister serves one person at a time and meets with that individual for about an hour a week.

The Job Club is open to anyone looking for assistance in finding suitable work. The Job Club pairs participants with mentors and provides networking and support. Contact Maria Cervera at (865) 291-5211 for additional information.

Mental Health Concerns

The gospel of Christ declares that we are a community of broken people, all of whom need grace. In fact, God’s Word tells us that it is through our brokenness and our weakness that we can find true strength, as we depend less on ourselves and more upon our kind and powerful God. As a church, we want to be a place where we can speak up about our struggles and reach out and receive the support we need. Let us know if you’re struggling.

Emergency Concerns

If you experience an emergency during the week and want to reach one of our caring staff or pastors, you are invited to call our church office at (865) 693-9331.
