H.E.L.P. Ministry

H.E.L.P. Ministry of MPC

H.E.L.P is a Christian support group for those coping with chronic or severe mental illness and for family members who care for them.

This ministry is:

  • a place of refuge, support, and friendship
  • lay-led
  • hope-filled
  • respectful
  • confidential
  • educational
  • prayerful
     

H.E.L.P. is not:

  • a counseling service
  • therapy
  • a self-help plan

Regardless of your mental health condition — such as symptoms called depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, or anxiety – your presence and experience make the group stronger. We learn from one another the “tools” that manage symptoms.

A typical meeting consists of a speaker, video, or reading related to a mental health topic, followed by discussion and prayer.

This ministry is modeled after H.E.L.P. of Menlo Church in California.

Meeting times will be the 1st and 3rd Mondays of each month at 6:45pm at the Mandarin Road Campus in ‘Woody’s’ (on the back left side of the building). For more information, send questions by e-mail or call the church office at (904) 680-9944.
