The County Line Care and Visitation team is made up of pastoral staff and trained volunteers that would love nothing more than to bring you the care and help that you need.  Listed below are the care teams that County Line has available.  Click on the links associated with the specific teams to request help or to get more infomation on how to get involved with these ministries.

Alcoholics Anonymous / Al-Anon Family Group Meetings

Alcoholics Anonymous groups meet every Friday evening at County Line Church from 7:30 – 8:30pm in rooms 302 and 304.  Call the church office or visit for more information about AA.

Al-Anon meets every Friday evening at County Line Church from 7:30 – 8:30pm. Members do not give direction or advice to other members. Instead, they share their personal experiences and stories, and invite other members to “take what they like and leave the rest” – that is, to determine for themselves what lesson they could apply to their own lives. Call the church office or visit for more information.

Celebrate Recovery

The purpose of “Celebrate Recovery” is to fellowship and celebrate God’s healing power in our lives through the 12 Steps and 8 Recovery Principles. This experience allows us to “be changed”. We open the door by sharing our experiences, strengths and hopes with one another. In addition, we become willing to accept God’s grace in solving the problems in our lives.

By working and applying these Biblical principles, we begin to grow spiritually. We become free from our addictive, compulsive and dysfunctional behaviors. This freedom creates peace, serenity, joy, and most importantly, a stronger personal relationship with God and others.

Meetings are held every Monday from 7:00-9:00pm in the High School Room. You will be greeted by a Celebrate Recovery Team member at the door of the Student Ministries Entrance. For general information, please contact Anna Bell at (260) 908-0039 or Ric Reger at (260) 927-3853.

The mentor and mentoree meet once a week for a year.  The meetings are only about an hour in length and times and location can be coordinated to fit your schedules.  We also provide the materials for you.
Whether you are a mentor or a mentoree, this is the number one priority Jesus called EVERY follower of His to do.  Jesus called us to be disciples and to make disciples.  If you are not mentoring someone else or being mentored, then you are missing the most foundational key to the Christian life.  This is what life is all about!
Email Senior Pastor’s Assistant Sheila Stetzel today and begin the adventure of a lifetime, as God works in your life in ways you never imagined!

The mentor/mentoree relationship impacts both of the individuals participating.  Those who have engaged in this ministry are flourishing like never before in their lives.  Don’t miss what God has in store for you!
