As believers, we know that God created us, that our sins are forgiven and that Jesus promised us eternal life with Him in heaven. Still, at times, we may feel hindered by various spiritual, personal, emotional, family or financial challenges. Jesus does provide the spiritual tools to experience victory even when we may not sense His presence, joy or peace.
All the pastors are available for spiritual help. In addition, Pastor Jon Hall and Pastor Mike Catanzarito provide individual and marriage counseling from a biblical perspective. Pastor Mike also works with children. Call the church at (419) 289-8334 to make an appointment with any of our pastors. Pastor Jon’s cell is (419) 282-6186. .
