Care Ministry

We are here for you. Nobody should ever have to go through this alone or isolated.

We don’t have all the answers but we will walk together through this.

No strings attached, even if you don’t come to church on Sundays or ever become a Stakeholder, we want you to know we are here for you.
Below are several ways for you to receive care and support. If you have any questions, or need to speak directly with a pastor, feel free to contact us at 502-426-6668.

Listening Appointments

Everyone needs an outlet – a person you can turn to when your feelings of isolation and loneliness are too much to carry on your own. We have a team of pastors who are ready to listen. Tell us what you’re going through, what feels hard, or anything else you’d like. We will listen, offer biblical advice, and pray with you. We can also suggest further resources and mental health professionals if needed. Sign up for your 30-minute listening appointment below.

Mental Health Q&A Facebook Live Discussions

Lead Pastor, Tyler McKenzie & Online Campus Pastor, Adrienne Feldmann led two Facebook Live Q&As to discuss mental health & COVID-19 with Brian Woodring (Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist), a counselor who specializes in dealing with acute and post traumatic stress as well as critical incident stress management.

Let’s Talk About Mental Health – Sermon Series

Statistics show us at least 1 out of 5 Americans battle a mental health issue each year. That means 5 out of 5 Americans love someone battling a mental health issue. It’s time to talk about mental health!

Northeast has discussed stigmas that come with these issues, spiritual practices that have proven helpful for people in our church, and what to do when it seems like nothing helps… even God.

Care Groups

Online Care Groups

We’re in a time where social distancing is mandatory. But, that doesn’t mean social isolation. There are ways to get connected to others no matter where you are, and we want to take advantage of that during this time. You can still find comfort, care, connection and support. We’ve created several groups to help you through this, so if you find yourself wanting to talk/vent/listen/get support, check out these groups. If you can’t find what you need, please email our Care Pastor.

Divorce Care Group

  • When do we meet: Weekly, Tuesdays from 6:30 – 8:30pm
  • Location: Northeast – Brownsboro Campus
  • Are you feeling lonely? Ashamed? Depressed? Embarrassed? Angry? Hurt? Afraid? Through the divorce process, we experience all these feelings and it seems like no one understands, which leaves you feeling deeply isolated. All the sudden you’ve become one of ‘those’ people – a divorcee’. This is most likely unchartered territory and you may not know how to handle it. The Divorce Care class teaches that those feelings are normal, and even a necessary response to the healing process. Come connect with other people that are experiencing the same feelings as you! If you’re going through a divorce, or ever have, and feel like you need healing or a community, come check out Divorce Care.
