GraceCares exists to glorify God by guiding people to become like Christ in all of life.
We do this by providing support for individuals and families affected by emotionally, physically
and spiritually difficult circumstances.

Do you need help? Do you need to know someone cares about you? GraceCares provides help, hope and healing for life’s struggles, and we’d love to meet you.

Pastoral Care

Pastoral care is one of the many ways that Grace hopes to show Christ’s love. The core of our care ministry is providing support to individuals and families. We care for those affected by illness, hospitalization, terminal diagnosis, disease and bereavement, as well as their long-term effects. Our pastors and staff visit hospitals and health care facilities. To schedule an appointment, to share a concern or to notify us of medical emergencies please call 512.345.7840.

Upcoming Events

Men’s Accountability Workshop

Sundays, June 2 – June 16 (9:15  – 10:15am)
Education Building, Room C

We hear a lot about accountability at church, in small groups, and in Christian books.  But how do we actually do it?

Take part in the Men’s Accountability Workshop to figure out how accountability is done in the context of deep Christ-centered relationships. During this workshop, you can expect to not only learn about accountability but to start practicing it. Whether you’re currently seeking an accountability friendship or already have one, this workshop will give you a biblical basis and the practical tools to become more like Christ in all of life.


Celebrate Recovery

Thursdays • 7-9 p.m.

Celebrate Recovery is a highly effective program for finding freedom from the chains that shackle our lives and hold us in bondage to sin, shame or a painful past. We refer to these as “hurts, habits and hang-ups.” We all have them, and they can make life unmanageable. Come find hope for change! CR meets Thursday nights at 7 p.m. in the Live Oak Building, The Loft.

PrayerShawl Ministry Logo


Grace Cares Prayer Shawl is an outreach ministry of women who crochet or knit to offer shawls they donate to comfort those who are suffering from loss, cancer, serious illness, or any trial in which one needs to feel God’s love and strength. The group meets twice per month, on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays from 1-2:30 p.m. in the Brides room in the Worship Center.


We also accept monetary donations, needles, crochet hooks, yarn, knitting or crocheting books or patterns. We kindly ask that wool yarn is not donated since some people are allergic to wool.

“[The PrayerShawl Ministry] gave me a prayer shawl for my mom in 2018 when she fell and ended up in hospitals, then rehab, then assisted living, then memory care. She passed away in June 2020 and, despite COVID, they allowed family in and I was with her two days prior and also as she passed. I wanted you to know the shawl was with her, on her, etc. for those two years. She appreciated it so much as did my family. After her passing, my sister wanted it. I shipped it to her with other things and she absolutely treasures it. Just wanted to thank you and your group so much.”


– Katy, Prayer Shawl Donation Recipient

Here at Grace, you often hear the phrase, “I am just the Pastor, you are the minister.” Care Ministers are one such expression of people who provide emotional and spiritual support to others during a difficult season of life.

This can be a confusing time when you feel isolated and have questions about issues you’ve never faced before. GriefShare gives you the people and the place to help you face these challenges and move forward.

“DivorceCare has been so helpful in my transition from being a married person to a single person.  It has given me a place to understand that all those emotions that go through me and change every 5 minutes are normal in a divorce. I didn’t know I really, really needed this group until I was part of it.  Now, I am so grateful for the healing, friendships, and growth that have come out of DivorceCare.” – Anonymous DivorceCare participant


“DivorceCare at Grace was SO helpful to me and supported me at a very difficult time of transition in my life. The forum gave me a safe space to learn how to restart my life.  It allowed me to share with other people who wanted to focus on healing from divorce with a Christian perspective. DivorceCare also gave me the chance to build new friendships with some trusted and spiritual people keeping me from isolation. I highly recommend the DivorceCare program!” – Anonymous DivorceCare participant


“As a participant Divorce Care gave me a safe place to process my divorce. I was devastated, ashamed, and overwhelmed. The structure and boundaries of the program gave order to the chaos in my life. Talking to others going through the same thing helped me to feel normal and understood. The Christ focus affirmed that God still loved and forgave me. As a facilitator Divorce Care gave me the opportunity to show Christ’s love to people that are hurting. I had traveled this road years before and being able to relate and give comfort was a blessing to me. It is still one of my favorite ways to serve God and my church.” – Anonymous DivorceCare participant and facilitator
