You're not alone.
As a church, we are committed to becoming like Jesus in every area of our life. This includes not only our spiritual lives, but our emotional and mental lives as well.
The conversation around mental health can be confusing and intimidating, but one thing we know for sure: God created our minds, and there is nothing that we walk through that is outside the scope of His power and care.
We hope the following resources can help you learn more about your mental health and how you can live a life that glorifies Jesus.
YOUR FIRST STEP
If you feel like you are struggling or would like someone to talk to, our pastoral staff would love to sit down with you. While we are not licensed counselors, we would be happy to listen, process with you, and provide biblical advice on whatever you are walking through.
We are also able to refer you to several trusted counselors and resources that will help you continue the journey to healing.

Conversations around mental health can be difficult to navigate, and one particularly heavy conversation you may have with someone is around the topic of suicide.
Because of this, we want you to be as resourced as possible should you find yourself in a conversation with someone that you suspect or who overtly informs you that they may attempt to take their own life.
