Do you need Pastoral Care?

Life is filled with joys, struggles, difficulties, and change. Pastor Marcus can provide support to you and/or your family by listening and walking with you in what you are going through. Pastor Marcus will do his best to point you to Jesus for He is Lord and Savior of our lives, this world, and eternity.

Pastor Marcus is open to members and non-members alike. He is willing to encourage, support, and help regardless of what your previous connection with the church is.
