Parachute Ministries

Our vision is that everyone would have someone to walk alongside them during challenging times. Chances are good that whatever you're going through, there are others who have made it through a similar experience and/or are able to walk alongside you so you don't have to go through it alone. Whether you or a loved one are experiencing the challenge of a cancer diagnosis, grief, divorce, parenting, mental illness, incarceration, addiction, financial hardship, unemployment, etc., we want to connect you to someone to be a friend on your journey. If you would benefit from this, or if you feel led to be available to walk alongside someone, contact Melissa Clark at or call the church office at 812-372-1571.
