There are times in every Christian’s life when the pressures of family, marriage, finances, or work can build to a point of crisis. When that happens, the pastoral staff at FWC is available to provide counseling based on biblical principles and prayer to strengthen and rebuild that Christian’s faith.


Family Worship Center has staff devoted to serving the needs of our members. If you need bereavement support, funeral planning, pastoral counselling or have an emergency situation, please contact Dale Usey at or call 225-768-8300.


Hospital visitation is available upon request of the patient or family member. Our pastoral staff make regular visits to all local hospitals. Please call 225-768-8300 to request a visit.


FWC has a team of trained volunteers who are available to minister to the elderly living in nursing homes, rehabilitation centers, and senior apartment complexes in Baton Rouge and the surrounding areas. Visitation, which is key to this outreach, is complemented by music, prayer, and ministry of God’s Word.


When a member of our church family is sick, we want to be where they are—in hospitals, convalescent and rehabilitation facilities, and hospice—to offer them and their family member’s prayer, support, and encouragement from God’s Word. Our volunteers are sensitive to the patient’s physical and spiritual needs.


We believe in water baptism by immersion just as Jesus was baptized in Mark 1:9-10. This is a public act of confession of salvation and one’s faith in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Baptismal services are offered twice each year at FWC during on Campmeeting Sundays.


At FWC, we believe in the dedication of infants and small children to the Lord. This is an act done voluntarily by parents, at their request, as a public commitment to the Lord to raise their child(ren) in the fear and admonition of the Lord, according to God’s Word.


At Family Worship Center, there are plenty of ways for you to be involved in ministry. As an FWC volunteer, we can arrange for you to pray with people in area nursing homes, comfort those experiencing the loss of a loved one, or share the gospel of Jesus Christ with men and women serving time in prison.
