Pastoral Care

A family; that is what New Life Christian Center is all about, and at the heart of every family is love. Our love for the Lord and for each other brings us together and makes the good times sweeter and also helps us through the tough ones.

At New Life, you’ll find that being a part of a family is a great feeling. There’s the comfort of knowing that you’re surrounded by people who love you, people who care for you and that’s what New Life’s Pastoral Care Ministries are all about. Our Pastoral Care Ministries are designed to minister to your needs at every stage of life.

Biblical Guidance Ministry

The Biblical Guidance office provides confidential counseling based on sound Biblical principles for those coping with life's stresses and difficulties. New Life’s ministers in the Biblical Guidance office, as well as specially trained lay members, are available to assist those in crisis. In addition, Life Groups are offered to help meet a variety of needs. Life Groups meet at their selected times and dates. For more information or to request an appointment with Biblical Guidance, call Pastor Terry Eubanks @ (706) 738-2526 ext.112.

Intercessory Prayer Ministry

Lifting up the special needs of our families is an important part of New Life’s Intercessory Prayer Ministry. If you have a need for which you would like our Intercessory Prayer Ministry to intercede, you may make that request by calling (706) 738-2526 from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm or by submitting a Prayer Request.

Hospital Ministry

The Pastoral Care staff extends compassionate ministry and prayer to those who are hospitalized through personal visitation in the area's hospitals. Recent changes in the law have limited the information hospitals can give to those requesting information about patients, so it is necessary to contact the Pastoral Care office to report any admissions or surgical procedures. You may call the office at (706) 738-2526 during regular office hours or (706) 738-2526 Ext. 112 when church offices are closed. Visits are normally made within twenty-four hours of the notification, but quicker response is offered if in an emergency. You can also submit a Prayer Request.

Car Care Ministry

Recognizing that dependable transportation is an essential need in today's world, New Life's Car Care Ministry provides free, basic preventative maintenance to New Life members (Partners) who are: widows, single mothers with dependant children, ladies age 60 and above who are single, and those whose military husbands are deployed. For more information, please call (706) 738-2526.

Benevolence Ministry

Extraordinary circumstances occasionally create special financial needs. The Benevolence Ministry seeks to provide financial assistance and/or Biblically-based guidance for members to help them in a time of special need.

You may call (706) 738-2526 for answers to questions you may have about making a request for assistance.

Homebound Ministry

The Pastoral Care staff extends personal ministry by regularly visiting those members who are confined to home or in facilities such as nursing homes and assisted living. In addition to the Pastoral Care staff, homebound ministry volunteers maintain regular contact with these members through monthly visits, cards, and phone calls. If you would like to participate as a homebound ministry volunteer, call (706) 738-2526 Ext. 112 to learn how you can become a part of this rewarding ministry.

Hospice Ministry

When members are diagnosed with a terminal illness and are placed in Hospice care, New Life works with Hospice personnel to provide prayerful, compassionate, and supportive ministry to both the terminally ill member and their family through the Pastoral Care office. Call (706) 738-2526 Ext. 112 to let the Pastoral Care office know when someone has been placed in Hospice care.

Widows Ministry

The Bible clearly communicates God's concern for the widow, and instructs us to take special interest in extending His love and concern for them. The Pastoral Care staff offers help at the time of loss through prayer and assistance. Widows Ministry volunteers deliver a special packet to the new widow a few weeks after the loss, and maintain contact with the bereaved for a period of time. The packet contains grief material and identifies various sources of help available at New Life. One of New Life’s ministers maintains personal contact with the bereaved for the first year after the loss. For more information or to volunteer in the Widows Ministry, call (706) 738-2526 Ext. 112.

Bereavement Ministry

Families share their grief at the passing away of a loved one. The New Life family is no exception. We endeavor to wrap our caring arms of faith and comfort around families who have suffered loss. When we are made aware of a loss, one of the Pastoral Care staff immediately attempts to contact a family member to express our condolences in the loss, to pray for the family, and to offer any assistance that the family may request. In addition, the Pastoral Care office notifies Life Groups where the deceased or family members of the deceased are attending so that those Life Groups can offer special ministry to the family. To notify the Pastoral Care office of a death, call (706) 738-2526 during office hours or (706) 738-2526 Ext. 112 when the offices are closed. You can also submit a Prayer Request
