God is using our church to bless the community we live in and to make His name great.  There are two ways you can join God in this miracle.  1) Make an honest assessment of your own mental health by having a conversation with a counselor or calling a hotline.  Use your health benefits or the free service at the church.  Be open with others about wanting to have that conversation and what you learned from it.  2) Get the word out to your family, friends, and coworkers about this free service.  The best invitation is not a social media ad but you telling the story of what your church is doing.  Each time you share this news you are pointing to the work of God to meet the needs of our community that can not be ignored.
