Life is full of joy, but we know that it also has its share of hurts. At Cornerstone Lutheran Church, we have a heart for loving people through their pain, whether they are in our church or our community. Hope can be found in support groups like GriefShare, DivorceCare for Kids (DC4K), caregivers, employment needs, or for those with disabilities. And, support can also be found in creating homemade comfort shawls for those in need. Find out more, below.

Supporting Each Other

  • Mental Health Resources

    Our pastors want you to know that you can always contact them if you are in need of pastoral care. If you need to contact a pastor for an after-hours emergency, call 317-814-4252 follow the prompts.

    Sometimes however, the help that you need goes beyond what our pastors can provide. So, we also want to provide you with a list of resources -- places that you can contact to ask for help. 

    Don't go through your hardships alone. Reach out and find the help that you need. We care about YOU!
