National and local mental Health and emergency resources

It is always right to ask for help!

As believers in Jesus Christ we believe that everyone has dignity and worth and is made in the image of God and we are called to love God first and our neighbor as ourselves (Genesis 1:27 / Leviticus 19:34 / Luke 10:27).  As members of the body of Christ we are called to look out for one another in our time of need.  If you need help, please reach out and ask for the help you need.  DON'T GIVE UP, THERE IS ALWAYS HOPE! (hope video) God loves you and is with you and has provided many ways, through many different people, to get the help you need, no matter what it is!   We support you and encourage you and we are praying for you!

  • God can help you overcome addiction

    If you struggle with addiction (no matter what addiction it may be), there is help and RECOVERY IS POSSIBLE!  Asking for God's help is the best place to start!  But God gave us other people, medicines, medical and mental health professionals to help us as well.  If you need help with addiction, check out the local resources (below) or reach out for help by calling the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA’s) National Helpline at 1-800-662-HELP (4357).  You can check out their website here.  Or check out "Celebrate Recovery" (a Christ Centered 12 step program) by clicking here.  Always remember that God loves you just as you are and with God's help (and the help of others) healing and recovery is possible!
