Mental Health

Dear Church Family,

As we continue to face the challenges brought on by COVID-19, we recognize that some of you may be feeling sad and lonely, separated from your friends and family during this difficult time.  Please know, you are not alone.  Your pastors and church ministry leaders are praying for you, and we hope that the peace of God will fill your hearts today and always.

In collaboration with our pastors, the mental health professionals in our church family have put together a list of resources that we hope will be a help to you for the duration of this pandemic.

If there is anything you need in the coming weeks, be it prayer or just someone to talk to, please reach out to us.  We are here for you.

Blessings,

ECC Leadership Team
