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.

Care, Encouragement, and Support

The CSPC Care Ministry has multiple and diverse care teams that are capable of providing various forms of care, encouragement, and support to our members. We are currently prepared for both short- and long-term care needs.

  • Prayer Support (including emails, texts, and/or phone calls)
  • Meals after surgery or during the course of medical treatments
  • Visitation: A visit can be scheduled while a member is recovering from surgery, having health concerns that require them to stay at home, being physically homebound, or becoming the sole caregiver for a loved one
  • Transportation to doctor appointments
  • Small Home Repairs and/or Lawn Care

Recovery Ministries

If you’re interested in a recovery group, please reach out so that we can provide you with the information you need.

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.

Interested in becoming a Stephen Minister? Please complete the application and email it to jeannette@cspc.net or drop off to the church office.

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.
