Resources to manage stress and help you grow spiritually

Emotional & Spiritual Support

We know that this season is challenging in some way for all of us. There are the "small" things to grieve like losing routine, time with friends, and the rituals that knit us together like birthday parties and weddings. And, many of us are facing big, hard things like job loss or the illness of a loved one.


We've posted some resources here to help a bit in your journey and, if you need some additional support, please connect with our care team.


During this season challenge yourself to ask:

  1. How can I lean into my community?
  2. How is God at work in this?


We believe that we're here to draw others into authentic Christian community and God is still (maybe especially) working in our lives in the midst of physical distancing. Looking to make some connections? We have many groups meeting virtually and we'd love to have you join one.


Now, more than ever, challenge yourself to do these two things:

  1. Take care of yourself!
  2. Look for a way to serve your neighbor this week.


We cannot give away what we do not possess. Take time to nurture your own physical, spiritual and mental health. And then, look for ways to serve and encourage your actual neighbors. Need some ideas? Check out our local service opportunities page.

Resources to Grow Spiritually

Try one of the reading plans on the YouVersion Bible app on your phone. These plans are very convenient and easy to use. For those of you who are beginning with the Bible considering doing "The Bible: Explained."


Have you downloaded the app "The Chosen" on your phone or computer? The app is a set of episodes about Jesus - a dramatized version of his life. Many on our staff team have really enjoyed watching them.


Also, consider finding something to watch on Right Now Media.  It's a great portal for viewing material. There are studies on faith, parenting, marriage and even faith-focused kids shows.
