At Cedarbrook we value life change. Our mission is to help people connect to a “growing relationship with Jesus Christ.” “Growing” implies that we are continually changing for the better, maturing in our faith, character, and behavior.
If you are struggling with personal issues of concern, we would like to help you as much as we can. Following are some ways we might help you:
1. Meet with one of our pastors. Our pastors are happy to meet with you once or twice to assess your current situation, offer a biblical perspective and recommendations, as well as referrals to trained counselors.
2. Transformational Prayer. We have people who have been trained in an emotional healing process to help individuals identify sources of emotional pain (fear, anger, depression, etc.) and receive deep inner healing. This process has helped hundreds of people at Cedarbrook over the years. If you would like to meet for an introductory session with a facilitator or to learn more contact tpm(Replace this parenthesis with the @ sign)cedarbrookchurch.net (Lisa Diederich). You can also read about the process here.
3. Mending the Soul. In January of 2015 we began offering support groups for survivors of abuse. All of our facilitators have received training in the Mending the Soul program. Read more about Mending the Soul here. To find out more about joining one of these groups, contact pjwalker2603(Replace this parenthesis with the @ sign)gmail.com (Patti Walker).
4. Helpful books. Pastor Remy has written three books that might help address your emotional pain. Many people have found great help for issues of shame, addiction, anger, low self-worth, and loss. His books are available in the lobby of Cedarbrook Church or on Amazon.com in either paperback, Kindle, or audiobook formats. Click the links to learn more:
