Care Ministry


We believe in the power of prayer! It is the key to leading people to Christ and the foundation of everything we do. Our Prayer Team is here to stand with you whether you have a need or facing a particular struggle.



Our Care Ministry is here to help you through the painful loss of a loved one. We don’t want you to face this season of life alone. If you need help coping emotionally, or addressing the details of planning the funeral of a loved one, we’re here to help. Our pastors are also available to officiate your loved one’s memorial service. For more information please call 727-799-1618 Ext. 1812


Water Baptism

We believe water baptism is an important step of obedience that shows others we have personally trusted Jesus for our salvation. Being lowered into the water and being raised again symbolizes death to our old way of life and entering into a new way of living in Christ.



The Counseling Team offers biblical principles for members and regular attendees of Countryside. Our goal is to provide biblical truth that will equip you for your journey in Christ. We provide short-term ministry that will encourage you to take the necessary steps for a healthy spiritual walk. To schedule an appointment please complete the counseling information form.


Hospital Visits

The Care Team offers practical and compassionate care to the members and regular attendees of Countryside. We visit hospitals, rehabilitation centers, nursing facilities, hospice and homes.


Child Dedication

Dedicating your child is a public commitment you make before God, your family and your church. By doing so you are committed to raise your child in the moral and spiritual principles of God’s Word, so they will develop a desire to love God and love people. It is not a ceremony that brings salvation to your child or a substitute for a believer’s water baptism.


Engaged Couples

We believe marriage is sanctioned by God, joining one man and one woman in a covenantal union, as defined by Scripture. Marriage ceremonies performed by a pastoral staff and performed in any facility owned, leased or rented by Countryside will only be those ceremonies sanctioned by God, joining one man and one woman as that gender was determined by God at birth.  If your desire is to have a Countryside pastor perform your ceremony, it is required that you attend and complete the Engaged Couples Seminar.
