CARE

The Care Support Team helps people, in all phases of life, have a better relationship with God and others.

Care & Counseling

At some point in all of our lives, we all need extra help. Ada Bible offers many options for those who seek extra care. If you need prayer, meals or any care below, click Get Care below or phone us at 616.622.3175.

Spiritual Care

It can be helpful to talk to someone about the situation you are facing. Our Care Support Team can help you sort through a difficult time and offer prayer and biblical guidance for your situation. Spiritual care is not intended to take the place of professional counseling.

Professional Counseling

Ada Bible partners with many Christian counselors in the area trained to help with situations including depression, marriage struggles, parenting difficulties, and other complicated circumstances.

Hospital Visitation

Members of the Care Support Team are available if you have just given birth, hospitalized or undergoing surgery. Due to patient privacy rules, if you or a family member are in the hospital and would like us to know—you must first inform the hospital and then contact the church at 616.868.7005.

Funerals & Memorial Services

When you experience the loss of a loved one, Ada Bible can help you with a funeral or memorial service. Our Care Support Team can help families during these difficult times by offering support, comfort and prayer. For funeral care, call the church office at 616.868.7005 or send an email.

Marriage & Relationships

We highly value marriage. For those who are called to marry, it can be a significant blessing in their lives. However, to create a great marriage takes a lot of hard work, support from others and God’s direction in your life.

Relationship Classes

We offer Marriage Prep, Marriage Prep: Remarriage, Marriage Refresh and Respectfully Yours classes to help you create strong relationships. See below for details about each class.

Weddings

We love when couples decide to get married at Ada Bible. Many of our attendees have had their weddings in The Chapel at Cascade or at one of our other campuses. Our in-house event planners will work closely with you to help create a memorable and beautiful wedding day at our church. To find out more about our requirements to be married, email us.
