The Mental Health Ministry (MHM) provides leadership and support for the congregation to develop an understanding and engage with love and respect those with mental illness and their families as children of God. As a community committed to extravagant welcome, the MHM coordinates the efforts in our church body that work to engage, support, and advocate for those with mental health and addiction and recovery issues in our community. MHM grew out of the Circle of Caring unit, begun in 2007, and has since continued to grow and expand.
The Mental Health Ministry could not do its work without our close community partners:
