At times everyone needs support, encouragement and guidance to help them through life. Care Ministries exist to comfort and care for individuals with the healing power, truth and love of Jesus Christ.

We are compelled by the compassion that God has shown us and hope that we can be an instrument to help meet your needs through confidential appointments, group support, prayer and benevolence.

Marriage Mentoring YouTube

At Friendship Church we care about marriages. We strongly believe Christian marriages should thrive and we want to help. Whether you are looking for marriage preparation, enrichment or a complete overhaul, consider having marriage mentors. We have many mature and committed couples trained to facilitate a hands-on method of mediation, validation, and negotiation which will assist you and your spouse with learning how to solve your issues together in a very firm and loving way.

There is a $50 fee for a helpful online assessment. However, let us know if this would be an issue for you.

If you would like more information or are ready to enhance your marriage relationship, Pastor Matt Clausen or call 952-447-0528.

If you have lost a spouse, child, family member or friend, you’ve probably found there are not many people who understand the deep hurt. That’s the reason for GriefShare, a special group facilitated by people who understand what you are experiencing and want to offer you comfort and encouragement during this difficult time.

Please view upcoming GriefShare events for more information.
