As a whole, our Care Ministries at Substance Church exist to help support the deeper spiritual and emotional needs of Substance Church attendees, like:

Prayer

At Substance, we believe that prayer is powerful and a primary means through which God’s creative and supernatural power impacts our lives and the world around us. Are you wanting prayer support? We’d love to join you in your requests! Email prayer@substancechurch.com for prayer. You can be as specific or vague as you’d like- but know that our prayer team keeps everything confidential and they love to pray for people in faith knowing the Lord will guide you and give you peace in your current situation.

Weddings / Pre-Marital

Preparation for marriage involves much more than detailing a beautiful wedding, it involves laying the emotional, mental, and spiritual foundations upon which an enduring marriage is built. Because weddings are temporary whereas the tools for a great marriage last a lifetime, we believe at Substance Church that premarital counseling is one of the greatest investments you can make for your future. We’re honored you have expressed interest in our Pre-Marital Wedding Ministry! Please read through our pre-marital document and let us know how we can assist you in preparing for your God-centered marriage! Email marriage@substancechurch.com for more information!

Financial Care

The Benevolence Ministry at Substance Church exists to assist regular attendees of Substance Church by offering one-time financial grants to help cover essential needs in time of personal financial crisis. Individuals with more general non-essential financial needs or chronic financial issues will be directed to our Pastoral Care ministry to assess any changes that may be needed to become financially stable. Are you a regular attender of Substance and are having financial difficulty? Fill out our benevolence form, submit it (directions on the document), and we will get back to you. Email care@substancechurch.com for more information!

Counseling

Our Pastoral Care Team is happy to pray for you and share Biblical wisdom with you; however, sometimes professional help is needed. When choosing a counselor it is often helpful to discuss how much you want the counselor’s faith to be part of the process, what the end goals are, and how cancellations and emergency meetings are handled. Also, we recommend you check with your insurance company regarding specific providers beforehand. You should be able to view any counselors professional bio before working with them and it is helpful to think of the first meeting as an interview of sorts. You want to make sure any counselor is one that you are comfortable with and comes from a perspective you value. Below are organizations that have great counselors and are in our area:

Funerals
