SCSM is getting a new, bigger center! This facility will be much larger than the one we are currently in and will have dedicated work space for our staff, as well as more counseling rooms (we currently only have one!), a large multi-purpose meeting room, rooms for our groups and classes, and a large area for our volunteers and their numerous projects. The center is located on seven acres just across from Chestnut Forks Tennis and Swim Club off of Airlie Road.
How did this come to be? Many years ago, Chaplain Liz was very supportive to Debbie Coyner in her time of need and, as a result, Debbie was so appreciative as it was so helpful to her in her healing process, that she and her husband Gray wanted to give back to Spiritual Care Support Ministries. They believe that lives are being changed as healing occurs through this ministry, as Debbie experienced for herself.
God spoke to the Coyners and told them to build a new center so that the rent would be less for SCSM and so SCSM would then have more money to use for their ministry of helping children, teens and adults that are ill, dying, grieving and experiencing loss. SCSM would also be able to train more people so that they could effectively help others.
We are so very grateful to the Coyners for their faith in God, and in this ministry, and for their extreme generosity.
