Marble Care Line
Confidential, Christ-centered support for those who are hurting from those who care.
Seek the Lord and divine strength, seek the Lord’s presence continually. - 1 Chronicles 16:11
Praise be to the God of all compassion and comfort. God comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. - Corinthians 1:3-4
Life as we know it has changed drastically and with this has emerged a number of spiritual and emotional needs in our communities. The Marble Care Line Ministry is intended to help us spread God’s love and hope through caring support. The Care Line’s trained volunteers provide non-judgmental, active listening to callers. If you need to speak to someone during these challenging times – perhaps you feel lonely, have experienced loss, lost your job, lost a loved one, are ill or perhaps you feel stuck and cannot decide how to move forward, call The Marble Care Line and get the support you need. A trained volunteer will be there to listen to you with a Christ-centered ear, a caring heart and a commitment to keeping all that you share in confidence. You do not need to walk this journey alone – we are here to walk alongside you.

Times of Operation
The Marble Care Line is available Wednesdays through Sundays, 12:00pm to 8:00pm.
Care Line services are available to adults 18 years and older. Volunteers are trained in providing confidential, Christian, spiritual care and are not licensed counselors or mental health care providers. Our goal is to share God’s love and hope, and ensure that callers get the most appropriate and compassionate support to meet their needs.
Please know that our policy is to hold all calls in confidence and that we value the trust you place in us. However, there are times when Care Line volunteers may be required by law to break confidentiality. An example of this may be when callers are perceived to be in immediate danger to themselves or others, and in such cases, we may need to break confidentiality by contacting the proper authorities to intervene for the safety of the caller or others.
Reasons for Calling the Care Line Include:
- Losses including loss of a loved one, job or home
- Feeling scared, overwhelmed or depressed
- Lack of hope
- Need to share information with someone in confidence
If you would like to volunteer, please send an email to CareLine@MarbleChurch.org expressing your interest, and a member of the Care Line steering committee will follow up with you to advise of next steps.
