Emotional or Spiritual Help
We know that this is a difficult time, and we’d like to walk with you and provide resources to help you however we can. Connecting with friends or members of your D-group and sharing honestly about your struggles is a great place to start, but we realize that you might need more. Here are some options:
- • Let us pray for you. We have staff and elders praying daily for needs of our community. Let us know your prayer request by sharing in through this online form.
- • Contact us directly via email or using our online contact form.
- • Consult our Mental Health Resources page to find a referral for a local counselor based on your need.
We know that this is an unprecedented time of job loss and financial hardship for many in our community. NDC can offer temporary financial assistance through our benevolence program. This program is designed to provide assistance to our members and regular attenders, as well as their friends and family for whom they may ask for help on their behalf. Here’s how the program works:
- • Fill out this online application, detailing the need for yourself or the person on whose behalf you are applying.
- • Each application will be reviewed by our staff and someone will follow up with you directly.
- • Once a legitimate need is identified, we can grant assistance in two primary ways:
- Grocery gift cards to assist with buying food for one month.
- Direct payments for an obligation that cannot be paid (e.g. rent paid to a landlord, utility bill paid directly to the provider, etc)
- NOTE: No direct cash gifts will be made through this program
- • After a grant is made, the recipient will be connected to a financial coach to help ensure they are maximizing the stewardship of their resources and opportunities to navigate through this time of hardship.
- • Multiple requests are allowed month to month but require consultation with a financial coach before receiving additional gifts.
Being stuck at home with a spouse or significant other can be difficult in the best of situations, but the added stress of the pandemic can strain relationships to a breaking point. We want to help. Here are some resources:
- • First, if you feel unsafe or are a victim of abuse call 911.
- • If you’d like to speak to someone about your situation, email us or fill out our online contact form, and we’ll set up a time to talk.
- • Maybe you just need a date night. But we can’t go out! No problem. We’ve partnered with Communio on this stay-at-home date night experience.
- • Maybe this is a good time to do a relationship check up. We can set you up to take the Prepare-Enrich relational checkup, an online assessment, and then walk through the results with you to give you some tools and resources to work on your relationship on your own. Email us or fill out our online contact form, and we’ll set up a time to talk.
- • This might be the time to stop putting off connecting with a counselor. We have a great list of professional counselors here on our Mental Health Resources page.
Let us know how we can help. If there’s something else, just email us or fill out our online contact form and someone will follow up with you directly.
