Counseling Ministry Update

May 14 Counseling Center Fundraiser recap (from Dr. Peggy Reynolds):

  • Two of our church's youth shared their testimonies of recovery from mental health challenges, and afterward our Youth Director (Kaylee Bennett) and two of our counselors (Dr. Dave Cubito and Dr. Lauren Smith) met with the youth group in a workshop just for them.

  • Dr. Peggy Reynolds and three other professionals from the community spoke about ways to improve mental health for individuals and families. Two speakers highlighted Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), and a speaker from a treatment center spoke about hope in substance abuse recovery.

  • 10 informational tables were hosted by community agencies and a few of our church's care ministries.

  • It was an information-packed afternoon with opportunities for fellowship and Chad's famous cookies!
