Mental Health Awareness: Stress

Mental Health Awareness: Eating Disorders

The next few Caring Corner articles will bring information about some of the most common mental illnesses.  Sometimes we are too close to the situation to recognize when we or someone we love is losing their mental balance.  It is often easier to ignore or deny a concern than to talk about it honestly or seek care.  But God promises to walk with us THROUGH the dark times so we need not fear taking the [...]

Stewardship Campaign - Staying Vibrant! Week 5

Thank you for your ongoing partnership in the ministry we share here at Light of Christ!    It would be an understatement to say that it's challenging to have a sense of connection through these past many months. And, as we look on into 2021, we anticipate that we will continue to be challenged. But one important point of connection is in our giving. That one decision, that one choice of what to do with [...]

Staying Vibrant! Week 4
