Mental Health Ministry
O Comfort My People
In Spring 2021, Westminster Presbyterian Church applied for and received an O Comfort My People mental health ministry grant through the Presbyterian Mission Agency. Through this generous funding, WPC officially launched its congregational work of building awareness, skills, and resources around mental health.
Since then, we’ve had mental health-themed worship services, special workshops and seminars (including Mental Health First Aid training) and personal sharing opportunities.
We hope to de-stigmatize mental health challenges. We also hope to connect people coping with mental health challenges to resources using tools from within the rich spirituality of the Christian faith and beyond it.
