Sources for Help

Asking for help is hard, we don;t want to be a burden or feel our situation or problem is too small to be of concern for God.  But looking at Scripture, it's clear that God wants us to turn to Him.  He wants us to acknowledge our need, not hide from it.  We are free to seek help, even encouraged to do so!

Here are three truths that may be helpful in softening your heart in this struggle:  1)  Needing help has always been part of God's design for us.

2)  Asking for help is a blessing to others (it gives them an opportunity to serve God and to share Christ's love with you).  3)  Asking for help acknowledges the truth of our need for God and of God's grace.  Please consider these sources if you are in need of help during a difficult problem.

Note: Professional services do involve costs, but your church family at Bermudian wants you to receive the help you need.  If you are seeking professional help and need financial aid, please speak to our pastor, ministers, or deacons.

    The Bermudian faith community has a wonderful team of brothers and sisters who have completed a three-year lay counseling program through the American Association of Christian Counselors.  While this ministry does not take the place of professional or pastoral counseling, these brothers and sisters are here for you when you just need to talk with someone about a problem you're having.  What you talk about will remain private between the two of you.

    Quite Place

    Quite Place is a Bible Study / Support Group for persons involved in care-giving for a spouse or other loved one with serious problems.  Practical help, encouragement, and emotional support are given from God's Word, Pastor Larry, and other caregivers as they also share thoughts on self-care.  The group may spend time over a cup of tea or cup of coffee, a moment of rest, and some time to share with others who understand and may be just the help or peace you desire.  

    Please join us if you need a Quite Place.  Strict confidentially is stressed.  We usually meet at 7:00 pm on the 3rd Tuesday of each month.  Call the Bermudian Church Office at 717.292.1861 for confirmation of the next meeting.
