SOUL CARE

Care, restore, equip — we’re here for you.

about us

Soul Care is a ministry of Christ Chapel Bible Church that provides biblical care in variety of ways including groups, couples, and individual care.  This care is provided primarily through trained volunteers, not licensed counselors. We do not offer emergency care or care for minors under the age of 18.  

OUR MISSION: We exist to glorify God by comforting sufferers, restoring sinners, and equipping saints.  

OUR GOAL: To provide biblical care and support to help those seeking help meet the challenges of life in a way that will please and honor the Lord Jesus Christ, allowing for the full enjoyment of His love and plans for our lives. (Galatians 6:1-2, 2 Corinthians 1:3-4, 1 Thessalonians 5:14) 

OUR VISION: To provide short-term biblical care for those seeking help in a variety of contexts…groups, classes, and individual care; and to equip the members of the body of Christ to walk alongside others in their suffering.  

LOOKING FOR HELP?

You're not

ALONE

Just like you would go to the doctor to keep your physical body healthy, sometimes you need a little soul care for your emotional and spiritual health. Whether you’re feeling overwhelmed or stuck in unhealthy habits, come sit down with us. We’d love to introduce you to the hope and healing found in Jesus Christ. You’ll never be the same.  The Get Started button below is the entry point for requesting care for groups and individual care*.

*Currently we have an extensive waitlist for one-on-one care. We are happy to provide groups, classes, and community counseling referrals in the interim. But you are welcome to fill out the form, but please understand that there is a longer than usual wait time to see someone.

THRIVE

Thrive is a Christ-centered discipleship program that takes people to the root of sin and suffering and leads us to embrace the freedom found only in Christ’s finished work on our behalf. Click below to inquire about Thrive. Applications are now closed for Fall 2021.

Living in this fallen world is messy, but the truth of the gospel changes everything. Join Ryan McCarthy this spring and dive deep into the transformative truth of Jesus’ work on the cross and how it targets our hearts, core desires and motivations. You’ll discover that when our hearts change, our behaviors change as well. You’ll learn how you can truly change and help others do the same. This seven-week class includes lectures, class discussion, video clips and homework.

“I’m not angry, I’m just …” Have you ever found yourself saying this? If so, how do you most often finish it? “I’m not angry, I’m just … irritated? Tired of this? Having a hard time letting this go? Discouraged? However you finish the statement, the presence of anger is deceptive, but real. And when it’s not dealt with, destructive. Come and learn what the Bible prescribes for the troublesome emotion of anger in a two-week class.

CLASS AUDIO RECORDINGS >

Whether it comes in the form of over-committing, folding to others’ expectations, focusing on what others think of us, seeking attention or avoiding it, we all struggle to one degree or another with what the Bible calls the “fear of man.” This three-week class will help you address this nagging issue and replace it with something infinitely more life-giving and freeing.

We all feel it at times—life comes at us at lightning speed from a hundred directions. The demands, duties and deadlines won’t let up. And apparently, some people are able to float above it all with a peace that transcends all understanding. (Really?) Come explore what it looks like to deal with fear, stress and anxiety in a way that works for the rest of us who don’t always feel so spiritual.

Open to: Ages 18+, all genders

We all welcome some emotions — joy, excitement, relief. But others? Not so much. Bitterness, anxiety, depression, regret and embarrassment are all feelings that can barge in, boss us around and wreak havoc in our lives and relationships. The key is understanding these emotions and what God has to say about them. With that knowledge, we can begin to process and engage with even the most toxic emotions in a healthy way. Please register in advance.

Anchored - Reclaiming Our Identity In Christ
Women's Small Group
Thursdays, February 16 - April 6, 2023
6:30 to 8 p.m.
Register Below

“Who am I? It's a question we all ask ourselves at some point. Depending on the season we focus our identity on our job performance, marital status, personality type, or social network, among other options. However, there's a larger question to consider. Who does the Bible tell me I am in Christ?”

“Our identity in Christ is a fixed anchor guiding us through the changing seasons and circumstances of our lives. We’re not primarily defined by our college degree, marital status, the number of children we have, where we live, or the work we do. It’s our identity in Christ that shapes every aspect of our lives.” We invite you to a women’s small group to dive into these truths and anchor your identity in Christ. *Identity Theft by Melissa Kruger, (pages 3 – 4).

There’s plenty of good reasons to be afraid in this life — we could lose a loved one, drop the ball at work, receive a bill that we can’t pay, etc. — but as grown men, acknowledging our fear does not come naturally to us. God knew that fear and worry would be common emotions for men to battle in everyday life. That’s why He has given us great hope in the Bible and in Jesus Christ! However you struggle, this seven-week small group will help you identify the source of your fears, gain strategies for handling them and learn to rest in God’s protective care. Join us this summer as we move towards change together.

In this seven-week women’s small group, we'll walk through biblical truths to gradually gain hope, peace and rest for everyday life.

This group is designed for women ages 19 and older.

Hope Unshakeable
Not currently offerred

Grieving the loss of a child is a journey that no parent needs to travel alone. We know the heartbreaking reality that child loss grief doesn’t go away. We also know that there are aspects of grief that can make you feel lonely or isolated, like the fact that each parent grieves differently or that support fades weeks and months after the death. But we want you to know that you are not alone. Losing a child is more than a parent can handle on their own, but the Lord promises His strength, love, and comfort. “The Lord is near the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.” Psalm 34:18. Hope Unshakeable is a small group that will help you, not only walk forward in your grief journey, but connect with others who have some of the same feelings of grief and pain from loss.  This group is for women only, age 18 and older.

For questions email Linda at [email protected]

Loss is one of life’s inescapable realities. It is so much a part of the human experience, it’s like the air we breathe. Loss forces us to realize that even the good things we want and enjoy are fragile, temporary and unrecoverable. Loss takes friends, it takes family, it takes health, it takes relationships; yet God meets us in our loss and gives us others to share the sorrow of our losses with.

Are you facing loss in your life? Losing something you once had, the impending loss of something you love or the loss of something that you wanted but never received? Sometimes our loss is so great that our experience drowns out all truth, all hope; come let us remind you of the truth and hope found in Jesus. 

This is a small group for men and women ages 21 and up.

Uprooting Anger Men's Group
Not meeting at this time

If you struggle with irritation, complaining, bitterness or other forms of anger, join us for a six-week small group study. In Christ, we have been equipped with what we need to uproot our anger in its many forms. Join us for a small group experience that will involve weekly homework and discussions that will both convict and encourage.  You will need to be able to commit to majority of the sessions, so if you are going to miss two or more sessions we ask for you to wait for a group at a later date. 

When People are Big, and God is Small
Not currently available

Do you over-commit, fold to others' expectations, focus on what others think of you, seek attention or avoid it? These struggles are based in what the Bible calls "fear of man". All experiences of the fear or man share at least one commone feature: people are big. They have grown to idolatrous proportions in our lives. They control us. Since there is no room in our hearts to worship both God and people, whenever people are big, God is not. Join this group to help uncover the spiritual dimension of people-pleasing and point the way through a true knowledge of God, ourselves, and others. This group is for women ages 19 and older.

For questions email Linda at [email protected]

WHAT IS BIBLICAL COUNSELING?

“Biblical Counseling is a fluid event and process, as part of the great commission, whereby one or more theologically and relationally qualified persons provide spiritual, emotional, and behavioral service, comfort, and guidance in love to one or more persons through the truth and power of God’s Word under the ministry of His Holy Spirit.” John Henderson, “Equipped to Counsel: A Training Program in Biblical Counseling” 

equipping classes

Soul Care equipping classes will serve as a next step for shepherding and discipleship. At Soul Care, we believe everyone has been equipped through the Spirit and the Word of God to comfort and care for the suffering.

Who is this for?
For lay counselors, small group leaders, mentors, and anyone who wants to grow in how to walk alongside someone through sin and suffering

Be One Make One Reach One is a phrase we are using more and more at CCBC as we think about what it means to Be a disciple and make disciples. Instruments in the Redeemer’s Hands is a class designed to equip you to come alongside others and help them know and grow to be more like Jesus. The subtitle of a book that this class is named after is revealing and an invitation: People in need of change helping people in need of change. God has called to participate in the process of change in the lives of others. We all need help to know how, and this class will explore the different parts of the process of helping people change. Through faithful ministry of every part, the Body will grow to full maturity in Christ. Don’t just sit on the sideline. Make ministry your life and life your ministry. Learn how to become an effective tool for change in the lives of others. Not only will you have the excitement of seeing someone else’s life changed, yours will be as well.

A friend feels rejected. A counselee is angry. A church member's child is ill. You want to help, but where do you begin? Author and counselor Michael R. Emlet outlines a model of one-another ministry based on how God sees and loves his people primarily as saints, while bringing comfort to the sufferer, and faithfully speaking truth to the sinner. 

 

Filled with everyday illustrations as well as counseling examples, Emlet demonstrates what it looks like to approach fellow believers simultaneously as saints, sufferers, and sinners. Emlet unpacks Scripture and draws on his many years of counseling experience to help counselors, pastors, and friends love others wisely and well. 

 

Michael Emlet encourages church leaders to approach people as “saints, sufferers, and sinners.” This categorization helps the counselor know whether to turn to Scriptural passages that remind a person of their identity in Christ, console them in the dark day of suffering, or confront them for their unrepentant sins. 

Caring For One Another 
West Campus
Sundays, 1/8, 2/5, 3/5, 4/2 and 5/7  
4:30 p.m.

There is a difference between caring about people and caring for them. Sadly, many of us care deeply about the people in our lives, but struggle to care for them well. This study can help even the most experienced of us to care for one another with greater insight, depth and purpose. All of us need help in this caring for one-another more effectively but thankfully, there are some great and helpful resources available to help us grow. This class will provide both valuable content as well as practical opportunities to develop our skills with one another.
