Encouragement Letters

Encouragement Letters is a letter-writing ministry of encouragement and prayer for those who are facing trials and struggles. This ministry includes “Letters from Home” for our men and women serving in the military. A special thanks to the Ladybug Card Ministry and Ontario ARC for supplying the cards used in this ministry of hope. If you are interested in volunteering, it is a great opportunity that can be done from home. For more information, please email Jess French at

Caregivers Support Group

The Caregivers Support Group ministers to those who are the primary caregivers of loved ones who have become unable to care for themselves. The group meets monthly at Crosswinds, where caregivers are encouraged and prayed for, forming a community of healing and support. For more information, please contact Dodie Baker at (585) 554-6728.


DivorceCare offers a biblical approach for those going through the pain of separation or divorce. The 13-week program addresses related issues and helps develop strategies to move forward using video, workbook, and discussion groups in a safe, confidential community.
