Description: We will discuss the mental health crisis among our youth and provide families with tools to help deal with what their children are experiencing. Our Student Choir will be performing and our speakers will intentionally model age-appropriate discussion of mental health concerns without shame or judgment. This will be an open, important conversation.

Children are welcome at this service. The dialogue will be age appropriate and our Student Choir will be performing.
