Care Ministries show the love of Jesus by serving the needs of those in our community who are suffering from the challenges of the broken world in which we live. It is our desire to offer care in ways that touch hurting lives, to encourage them in love to deepen their relationship with God and others.
Please email us with any questions; we are here for you.

Celebrate Recovery

Celebrate Recovery is for anyone struggling with hurts, hang-ups and habits that hinder their relationships with God, others and themselves. We have all developed coping mechanisms to deal with brokenness; some are deceptive like codependency, control, overspending, or self-righteousness while others are more unambiguous like chemical dependence or a gambling addiction. Celebrate Recovery welcomes you to a safe place to find community and freedom.

Please join us Thursday evenings, 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm in room F101 (there is no childcare at this time) for a Christ-centered 12-step program based on the beatitudes so that you can experience life to the full—just as our good shepherd Jesus promised. Contact celebraterecovery@coswayne.org for further details and any questions and view this compelling introductory video and learn more about CR here.

Counseling

For those with counseling needs, we would love to connect you to a trusted local licensed Christian counselor. Contact care@coswayne.org so that we can help assess and connect you with the appropriate counselor.

Divorce Care

This support group is for those going through the process of separation & divorce. Our newest session began on March 25 and continues for 13 consecutive weeks (no meeting on Memorial Day). Our meetings are free with an optional cost of $20 to buy the workbook, and you may join anytime during the 13 weeks. Click here to register.

Financial Management (Financial Peace University)

If you want real and lasting financial peace in your life, Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University (FPU) is for you! Through motivating and humorous presentations based on Biblical principles and practical methods, you will learn how to successfully manage your finances. FPU is for everyone – young adults, married or single adults, seniors and teens, regardless of whether you are financially secure, just starting out or financially distressed. Please contact Mike Winter at mwinter133@aol.com for more information on the class that will begin in September.

Grief Share

Do you know someone suffering from the loss of a loved one? GriefShare is a 13-week seminar and support group designed to help you rebuild your life after losing a loved one or close friend. Here you'll find a safe place to heal from your loss with others who understand what you are going through. For more information, go to griefshare.org and enter Wayne, PA, 19087, or you can contact Sandy McCoy at sjmaide@comcast.net.

Love-in-Action (deacons)

Church of the Saviour's Love-in-Action Ministry is funded by the generous gifts of the congregation to assist members and attenders with practical help, short-term financial support, and connections to various Christian and/or community resources. Contact with the Love-in-Action board should be made by calling the compassion line on 610.688.6338 (option 3), which is monitored daily by a deacon or deaconess.

Stephen Ministry

Stephen Ministry provides one-to-one, Christ-centered care to people in the congregation and community experiencing life's difficulties. Our Stephen Ministers are well trained, and experienced to provide hope and faith when life makes hard turns. If you are experiencing one of life’s many transitions (job loss, new baby, moving, beginning college, becoming an empty nester, loss of a spouse, divorce, new job, illness, newly married et al.) and would like to be paired with a Stephen Minister (or are interested in becoming a Stephen Minister yourself), please contact stephenministry@coswayne.org.

Visitation

Do you know someone who needs encouragement, comfort or a sense of belonging? Our goal through visitation is to regularly check on and encourage our members who are unable to participate in corporate church life. If you know someone who could benefit from a personal call, handwritten card or in-home visit, please contact Betsy King at betsyking94@outlook.com.
