Black Rock Cares

OFFERING HEALING, HOPE & SUPPORT

Care & Prayer

Welcome to Black Rock Cares which serves the families of our church and Fairfield County through practical acts of compassion that focus on the emotional, physical, and spiritual needs of people. Through counseling, financial assistance, support groups and other forms of assistance, Black Rock Cares shows active love to those who are struggling with the challenges of life. At Black Rock, we care about you! Your need is our priority!

“All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work.”

2 Timothy 3:16

Groups

Community Group Care

One of the best ways to give and receive care is through Community Groups – small groups that meet weekly to help people build trusting relationships.

Living Free Groups

If you, or someone you know, are dealing with the effects of abuse and trauma, anger, anxiety or fear, chemical or other dependencies, divorce, grief or other issues, Black Rock’s Living Free Groups provide a safe place where you can find healing, hope, and support.

Counseling

Professional Christian Counseling

For information about expert counseling aimed at psychological and spiritual healing.

Financial Counseling

We have trained personnel ready to help you set up a budget and manage your finances responsibly using biblical principles. We are also available to assist those needing credit and debt counseling using the services of expert financial advisers.

Prayer

Submit a Prayer Request

Weekly Prayer Opportunities

The Bible teaches that the prayers of a righteous person (anyone made right with God through Jesus Christ) are powerful, and have wonderful results (James 5:16). At Black Rock, effective care and prayer go hand-in-hand.
