Care and Support

If someone has enough money to live well and sees a brother or sister in need but shows no compassion—how can God’s love be in that person? Dear children, let’s not merely say that we love each other; let us show the truth by our actions. 1 John 3:17-18

If you are a part of the Great Lakes Church family and have experienced the loss of a family member or close friend, we want to be a support to you in two specific ways:

          1) Our qualified care team wants to be a blessing to you by providing support, comfort, and help (ie - making meals).

          2) Our campus pastors want to help in the planning and/or leading of your loved one's memorial or funeral.

To begin the process of planning a service or simply making us aware of a death, please call (262) 208-4521 and leave a message. Someone will get back to you as soon as possible.

In the meantime, you can click here for guidance on planning a funeral or memorial service.

Teams of trained, caring members are available to visit with any of the members of Great Lakes Church to offer both prayer and encouragement.

To request visitation call 262-208-4521 and leave a voicemail or submit a request ONLINE.

What is marriage mentoring? 

A relatively happy, more experienced couple purposefully investing in another couple to help them make their marriage better. The mentors are not counselors. Rather they are available to encourage you in your marriage by being a sounding board,  providing resources, and praying for you.

CLICK HERE for the Great Lakes Church marriage mentoring page.

Our pastors are available to meet with you and provide pastoral guidance from both life experience and the Scriptures.

To set up an appointment, please click on the pastor's name and it will link you to their email. Simply tell them what you'd like to meet about. They'll do their best to respond quickly.

If you want someone to pray with you, members of the Prayer Team are available after all of our services. Another option is to submit a prayer request ONLINE and it will be sent to a member of the Prayer Team.
