There's no one who has not been impacted by the events we find ourselves living in! Anxiety, depression, fear of the future, and feelings of hopelessness are common, even in the church. Grief, loss, crisis, and trauma are all real after-effects of the pandemic and the uncertainty we now live in. They need help in learning to overcome adversity and develop effective coping strategies to live successfully in this ever-changing world. (See a list of potential topics below)
