HELP, HOPE & HEALING
Don't face it alone.
Even devoted Christians can struggle with depression and anxiety. And we aren’t immune to life’s most difficult challenges such as grief and divorce. Counseling at ACAC combines high quality professional therapy with a Biblical perspective while providing a cost-effective option for those in need.
Our counseling resources provide both group and individual therapy resources to help people both inside and outside our church family. Let us know how we can help.
The CCC is a non profit ministry that was originated out of the ACAC Counseling Department that provides professional, private counseling. Go to the CCC website for more information or call 855-222-2575 today. Carol Landfried, our Intake Coordinator, will connect you to the right person.
