Faith’s pastors counsel our members on a variety of practical issues as they relate to the Christian life. Such counseling is entirely confidential. We focus on the spiritual issues. In some cases, problems facing people go far beyond the expertise of the pastors into medical issues or issues requiring ongoing counseling or therapy. In those cases the pastors refer people to Christians with expertise in those areas.
Christians have always been known for works of charity, both among strangers and among their own. Here at Faith we have a fund called Helping Hands, distributed at the discretion of the pastors. In the case of non-members we do not hand out cash or anything redeemable for cash, but generally seek to help people with specific needs such as groceries or gas on a limited and not ongoing basis. In the case of our members, we are of course a family, and treat all genuine need and hardship as a family matter worthy or our mutual attention.
