Emotional health is a critical component of living life with Christ. GCCC provides support for members of our community going through difficult times via several means:

Deacons Ministry

The Deacons ministry is here to provide care for members going through difficult times.  Deacons may meet one-on-one to provide support, or assist in building a support network. For inquiries, contact: ask.deacons@greatcommissioncc.org. Inquiries will be kept confidential within the current Deacon Board.

Meals Ministry

Need meals during a crazy time of life? (new baby, recovery from major illness/surgery, etc.) The deacons can arrange for meal drop off for a period of time. Email gccc.meals@gmail.com to arrange.

Christian Counseling Resources

Counseling and Education Foundation (https://www.ccef.org/ )

Paul Tripp Ministries (http://www.paultripp.com/)

Emotionally Healthy Spirituality (http://www.emotionallyhealthy.org/) that provide insights on challenges common to believers (e.g., depression, relationships, dealing with conflict)

We encourage members of our community to meet with a Christian counselor to address challenging issues. A list of counselors in the area is here.
