Care Ministries


The Care Ministries of Calvary Chapel Modesto are provided to assist you and your loved ones during life’s most challenging times by demonstrating the love of Jesus Christ through comfort, care, and compassion.

The biblical basis for our Care Ministries is summarized in 2 Corinthians 1:3 – 4 where we read “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, Who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.”

Our Care Ministries provide practical comfort, care, compassion and counseling through the following groups:

GriefShare Ministry

GriefShare is a place where hurting people find healing and hope. You don’t have to go through the grieving process alone. Through friendly, caring, and understanding people you will gain great godly counsel that will teach you how to walk through the journey of grief and you will be supported along the way.  


Next session will begin:  January 13, 2022


DivorceCare Ministry

A support group where you can receive wisdom and encouragement from God’s Word to help you deal with divorce. This 13 week video seminar for parents and children alike is produced in a compelling format and features real-life stories of people who have experienced divorce. After the video the class will break into groups for discussion and prayer.  


Next Session will begin:  January 13, 2022


DivorceCare for Kids (DC4K) Ministries

DC4K is designed to help minimize the short- and long-term effects of divorce on your children’s schoolwork, emotional health and spiritual life. As your children begin to heal from the pain and confusion, their relationships with you, God and others will grow healthy and strong.
