Areas of pastoral counseling include:
Individual Confession and Absolution - Individuals meet with one of the pastors to discuss the spiritual challenges of life and to pray for God's forgiveness and renewal.
Pre-Marital Counseling - We normally meet three times in preparation for weddings. Please see our Wedding Guidelines.
Marital Counseling - Couples often find it helpful to talk through their difficulties with a pastor who can help to see different perspectives, especially the Biblical perspective.
Youth Counseling - Raising children has always been a challenge. We can help with resources and with heart to heart discussions with you and your children.
Sex Education - We can provide good resources to help your children understand God's plan for sexuality.
Depression, Anxiety, Etc. - Psychological problems are best treated with a combination of medical and spiritual help.
