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:

Family Matters: for family members of loved ones caught in drug/alcohol addiction
Addiction is a broad highway with many lanes. The complexity of this journey causes countless "family matters". These matters inevitably cause hurts, harms and habits to those closest to the problem. The suffering can be overwhelming. Where do you find help, a listening kindred heart, and most importantly, a silent tongue? A gathering of family members who share this burden is an already tested plan to alleviate some of the pain and helplessness.
When: Tuesdays, 7:00pm - 8:30pm
Place: Union Place 305
