THIS WEEK’S WORSHIP SERVICE
The sanctuary will be open from 10:00-10:30 am for a time of quiet meditation, interspersed with music and readings, coordinated by Bill Braun. It is a wonderful opportunity to pause and reflect for a short while – to soothe our spirits and have a brief respite in our busy lives – a worship gem we hope you will attend.

About Mental Health First Aid
Mental Health First Aid is a public education program that introduces participants to risk factors and warning signs of mental illnesses, builds understanding of their impact, and provides an overview of common supports. This 8-hour course uses role-playing and simulations to demonstrate how to offer initial help in a mental health crisis and connect persons to the appropriate professional, peer, social, and self-help care. The program also teaches the common risk factors and warning signs of specific types of illnesses, like anxiety, depression, substance use, bipolar disorder, eating disorders, and schizophrenia. Mental Health First Aid is included on the
Substance Abuse and Mental Health Service Administration’s
National Registry of
Evidence-based Programs and Practices (NREPP).
