We all experience the need for mental and emotional support from others when we face the challenges of life. Thus, the Pastor and trained members of our church are available to talk with when you are in need. We can assist with spiritual questions, grieving, relationship issues, emotional and mental challenges, and other topics that may arise in one’s life. We are here to support you and your family. We will listen, pray with you, and help identify additional support services and solutions.
Pastor J.R. is available for pastoral counseling for mental and emotional support and we also have resources being made available to our congregation by the Colorado Spirit Initiative, a crisis counseling, and assistance program. This program is funded by FEMA and delivered through Mind Springs Health in our area. They offer support and counseling to people in crisis situations like natural disasters and the pandemic qualifies for the delivery of their services.
This Initiative consists of professionals and paraprofessionals who support the community in coping with disaster disruptions, like this pandemic. It was started to provide services to community members who have been impacted by COVID-19 – whether it be loss of family and friends due to the virus, social isolation, financial loss, and more, and ALL SERVICES ARE FREE with no enrollment or sign-up needed. They offer tips for stress and resilience education, grief processing, problem-solving, and ways to access community resources. For more information, please check out their website: https://www.mindspringshealth.org/Colorado-Spirit-Initiative
As we are reminded in Romans 3:23, all have fallen short of the glory of God and thus we all need help from time to time. Now is one of those times.
To schedule a time with Pastor J.R. please contact the church office. To schedule a time with Mind Springs Health, please follow the directions on their website. I pray we all find the love and support of God from the various means we have access to the church, family, friends, and professional service.
