CARE MINISTRIES

PASTOR VINNIE CAPPETTA, CARE MINISTRIES LEADER

God designed the church to be a healing community—where people can experience love, grace, care and support in the context of relationships.  Jesus doesn’t wait for us “have it all together” – He seeks us, finds us and saves us when our lives are a mess (Romans 5:8). At Crossroads, we seek to embody the healing love of Christ to those who are hurting. Pastor Vinnie is a licensed counselor who oversees the pastoral care ministry at Crossroads. If you need short-term counseling, pastoral care, or a referral, please contact Pastor Vinnie or call his office at Crossroads, 508.877.7733 x103.


8 WAYS CROSSROADS CARES...


SPIRITUAL CARE

Our elders provide spiritual care for issues like crises, reconciliation, prayer, spiritual questions, and spiritual growth. Each member or regular attendee belongs to one of the four groups of elders. Pastor Joe and Pastor Vinnie provide pastoral care Monday-Thursday for issues related to health, crises, grief, trauma, mental health, relational difficulties, spiritual questions, spiritual direction and prayer. 


PASTORAL COUNSELING

Pastor Vinnie is a licensed counselor and provides free, short-term counseling for a variety of issues here at the church Monday-Thursday from 9:00am-5:00pm.  If you would rather work with someone outside the church, he can also refer you to some resources for finding a counselor or psychiatrist.

Each year, we offer one of these courses to raise the emotional health of our congregation.

  • Emotionally Healthy Spirituality: Introducing people to a transformative spirituality with God.

  • Emotionally Healthy Discipleship: Practical skills to launch people into a transformative spirituality with others.
