Counseling Corner

September is Suicide Prevention Month. Suicidal thoughts, much like mental health conditions, can affect anyone regardless of age, gender or background. In fact, suicide is often the result of an untreated mental health condition. Suicidal thoughts, although common, should not be considered normal and often indicate more serious issues.

    •    If you or someone you know is experiencing a mental health crisis, call or text 988 immediately.
    •    If you are uncomfortable talking on the phone, you can chat with the Suicide & Crisis Lifeline at
    •    You can also text NAMI to 741-741 to be connected to a free, trained crisis counselor on the Crisis Text Line.

You are never alone. If you are struggling, please reach out. And remember: “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”(Philippians 4:13 KJV)

From the Elders of Fifth Ward Church of Christ
The leadership would like to thank each and everyone of you for adhering to the safety measures and guidelines we've put in place for the benefit of all those who choose to attend worship service in person.
We continue to review current CDC guidelines and have prayerful discussions about how we're moving forward. Worship service is open to all alphabet groups, no more A-M or N-Z on alternating Sundays. We meet as one group and all members are welcome to attend. Sunday Evening IN-PERSON worship has resumed, start time is 6:00 pm and it will be livestreamed.
While conditions surrounding the pandemic are improving, we are still being cautiously optimistic.
Masks are now optional, but please continue to make wise decisions for you and your family. As a reminder, if you are not well, please stay home so that you do not compromise your health or that of others.
Sunday morning Bible Classes both in-person and via Zoom start at 10:45 am ending at 11:45 am. All Wednesday Night Bible Classes begin at 7:00 pm, In-person, Zoom and Livestream.
Let's continue to be responsible and do our part to keep everyone safe as we worship our Lord and Savior and do His Will to keep GROWING in Love, Grace and Mercy. Stay connected through our communication channels so that you are up-to-date with church news, service times and our plans as we continue moving forward. Our ultimate trust is in the Lord, and we KNOW that He will see us through whatever lies ahead.
Safety Measures and Best Practices:
  • Masks - Masks are no longer required but are highly recommended.
  • If you are ILL in ANY way with ANY condition, please stay at home
  • If you are afraid, or uneasy about coming together, please do not receive our direction as mandatory. Use your best judgement
  • Communion - we will continue to use disposable pre-packed elements which you can pickup in the foyer of both entrances. Members may still pick up communion supplies at the building on Friday's from Noon to 4pm
  • Giving - there will be a box in the foyer for you to drop off your offering as you enter the building, or you may continue to use our online SimpleGive app
  • Confession - On the card select items that you want the Elders to address. For online access to Prayer on Confession Card CLICK HERE

Romans 12:10-13 10 Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another; 11 not lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; 12 rejoicing in hope, patient[a] in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer; 13 distributing to the needs of the saints, given[b] to hospitality.
