Care and Counseling

Contact Us

Valley Church Care & Counseling exists because hurt and pain exist.

Through individual counseling, couples counseling, and other opportunities, we desire to show the love and compassion of Jesus Christ and to equip others to show His love as well.

Christ-Centered Counseling

Our Care and Counseling ministry offers counseling services to any Valley Church individual, couple, or family in need, whether it is for relational issues, addictions, depression, grief, or a difficult time.

Divorce Care

Going through divorce or separation is one of the toughest traumas one can experience, but you can find hope and healing. You are invited to find help and be with others who understand and are sharing in this healing journey.

13-Week Session (Tuesdays)

Tuesdays, 6:30pm • Valley Church
January 16–April 16, 2024

What To Expect

  • Small Group Size: Our group is usually around 10 people.
  • Complete Confidentiality and Privacy: What is shared stays in the room, and it is safe.
  • Small Fee: there’s a $10 fee for a workbook that is used throughout the course.


  • Video Teaching: We watch a 35-minute video each session followed by discussion.
  • Empathetic Leadership: The course is co-hosted by individuals who have experienced divorce. They understand the difficulty but also the hope provided through Christ.

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 you feel. This can be a confusing time when you feel isolated and have many questions about things you’ve never faced before. Grief Share meets weekly to help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life.
