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 Christian Counselors Collaborative is a network resource based at ACAC 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.
We hold weekly support groups that allow people who are facing difficult challenges to be Christ to each other and encounter His grace and healing. All groups are confidential. Participants can expect to:
- give and receive support and accountability
- keep their hearts and minds aligned with Christ and His teaching
- be transparent and 'real' with others struggling in similar areas
The following are active groups you can join today:
