A List of Resources

A List of Resources

real people…real stories

So many of us have personally experienced real seasons of darkness or hopelessness…or know someone close to us who has. We hope to provide you with resources to help in your journey of healing, or for you to better relate to those who are close and going through difficult times. Below you will find a list inside of suggested books and and other resources. Several of these books are for sale in our foyer on Sundays. Feel free to stop by the table and look through the books.


We will also be available and look forward with having you meet with one of our pastoral staff or elders to hear your story, pray with you, and provide some “next step” direction. Please mark your card on a Sunday morning, come forward at the end of the service, or call the office if you would like to meet with someone.


We do recommend professional Christian counseling to walk alongside those experiencing difficult circumstances or to simply provide outside perspective.
