Care

Healthy Mind, Body, Spirit

Our passion to care for you flows from the love of Christ! At Faith, we encourage everyone to get involved. This is the greatest way to give and receive care and prayer while you grow in community with one another. We know that those who are healthy in their mind, body and spirit are also the best candidates to serve others. We have many avenues where you can become equipped to use your gifts, life experiences, and compassion to make a difference in the lives of others for Jesus! Whether you are healing from a divorce, having surgery, getting married, or in need of someone to pray with, we value the privilege of serving you.

 

Marriage

God’s Word tells us that there are three in marriage; man, woman, and God. Marriage is a wonderful gift from God, rich with blessings, but it is not easy! It requires dedication, care, and selfless love. Our cars require routine maintenance to stay in top performance mode: gas fill-ups, tune-ups, oil changes, etc. Marriage is much like a car - we need to be pouring into our marriage with prayer and being in God’s Word, serving together, having date nights, taking part in marriage equipping or enrichment opportunities, and putting each other first in our marriage - yes even before our kids!



Hospital Visits

Our desire is to demonstrate the love of Jesus to those who are in need. If you are ill, hospitalized, or struggling with a care need we want to hear from you. Once we are aware of your needs, your situation will be assessed for the best follow-up to offer support, prayer, and encouragement.

2017 FALL MARRIAGE RETREAT

Hilton Branson Convention Center | Branson, MO
September 29 - October 1, 2017





Dan Seaborn and his wife, Jane


Speaker and author, Dan Seaborn, is back by popular demand, bringing with him his sense of humor, real-life stories, zest for life, passion for marriage, and love for the LORD! Dan and his wife, Jane, will be taking us on a journey to find JOY and direction in our marriages. Together, they form a captivating team and present us with an honest and authentic picture of a Christian marriage.

The Hilton Branson Convention Center is a 12-story AAA Four Diamond hotel perfectly located just steps from historic downtown Branson and Branson Landing. The Landing is a popular dining, shopping, and entertainment location adjacent to Lake Taneycomo. You may actually find yourself not even needing your car until the retreat is over! Free parking is available and can be upgraded to garage or valet parking. The hotel offers a beautiful heated outdoor pool that is open year round, an indoor pool, a fitness center, areas to gather with friends and play games, and enjoy refreshments, etc. A full hot and delicious breakfast for two on Saturday and Sunday mornings and lunch for two on Saturday is included. Arrive early on Friday and enjoy the day in Branson! Check-in begins at 3 p.m. on Friday. Free time is built into the weekend so you can relax as a couple on Friday and Saturday evenings. Plan a date- night, connect with other couples, take in a show, go for a walk, or do as you please! Sunday morning, Pastor Chris Sommer and Andy Weiss will lead us in a time of worship and celebration of marriage. The retreat ends at noon Sunday; giving you plenty of time to head home or experience more of what Branson has to offer!

Enjoy all of the above for just $349 per couple; that’s less than the cost of two nights at the Hilton if you booked on your own without any of the added benefits! A deposit of only $49 holds your spot; $150 is due by June 1 with the final balance of $150 due August 31. If preferred, smaller payments can be made at more frequent intervals to meet the above deadlines.

*Couples need to register under one name to avoid paying multiple deposits. Spouse's information will be collected on the registration form.
