You Matter to God and to Us

As the hands and feet of Jesus, we are called to care for all people, regardless of status or background. We take this very seriously and are working every day to continue expanding the ways we are caring for the people of Merced.

The Marriage Course

Our lead pastor and his wife, David and Nancy Goebel, have a deep desire to see marriages thrive. They have led hundreds of couples through The Marriage Course and have helped many navigate the challenges of marriage in a way that encourages and strengthens couples.

The Marriage Course meets in the Hoffmeister Center for seven consecutive evenings and consists of both large group teaching and discussion time just for husbands and wives. Each session lasts about two hours and includes dinner, dessert, and childcare. See the video on the right for more information.

Celebrate Recovery

Celebrate Recovery is a ministry for those dealing with life issues along with family members who support them. Here, participants can openly deal with hurts, habits and hang-ups that stand in the way of being healthy and growing in their relationship to God.

This ministry will launch in the Winter of 2018.

Prayer Ministry

Prayer is essential to knowing God’s will and serving him faithfully. We believe that prayer is both powerful and effective in the life of those seeking the Lord.
