The Family Church is a body that believes in healing, miracles, and the right of each person to walk in the fullness of their dreams and destiny in Jesus Christ.  We are committed to healthy community, healing, and restoration for each person: Spirit, Soul and Body.  The Transformation Ministry offers many opportunities for you to live your most-abundant life through the following:

Altar & First Responders Ministry

At Family Church, we believe that Supernatural living is “Normal Christianity.” So we pray and believe for healing, deliverance, and miracles.  At the conclusion of each church service, a team of prayed up, trained up volunteers are available to pray, with great faith, for you and your needs. In the presence of the Holy Spirit, some feel led to receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior; Our Altar/First Responders serve as a first point of contact in helping direct them to “what now?”  

If you are interested in joining us, we are looking for solid Christian with a passion to pray and encourage people, who are willing to commit to training and being a regular participant in our services.  Contact the church office (916) 971-7555.

Inner Healing Ministry

There is a “why” for everything you do. Our Inner Healing team members are trained volunteers who help you identify, through Spirit-led prayer, the roots of a challenge or recurring life pattern. God is a good Father, and His truth brings freedom where there has been bondage.  We are committed to making your Inner Healing appointment a safe environment for you. Many report incredible freedom and peace from just one appointment!  We have daytime and evening appointments, as well as Zoom appointments, available at no charge.  To schedule an appointment, contact the church office (916) 791-7555.

Intercessory Prayer

At The Family Church, we believe in the power of prayer; we know that when we pray, something happens; when we pray more, more happens.  You are welcome to submit your prayer request or to join us for Intercessory Prayer.  There are scheduled times where we go before the throne room of God, in unity, to both bless and war on behalf of our church body, the region, and those God has placed in authority over us. We also have our online ePrayer Team who pray, with great faith, for your needs.  If you would like prayer, contact the church office at (916) 791-7555.

Pastoral Counseling

For those who have deeper or foundational wounding, there is one-on-one pastoral counseling available. This allows for building of healing and behavior momentum, coupled with new life skill development. Our pastoral counselors utilize a prayer-led Inner Healing model that focuses on revealing the root of errant belief systems and behaviors to bring lasting change.  Pastoral counseling allows line-upon-line, precept-upon-precept healing to occur.  Both daytime and evening appointments are available.  There is a suggested donation of $65 per session. To schedule an appointment, contact the church office at (916) 791-7555.
