Dear Friends,

Today is National Suicide Prevention Day. I want to remind you of four things that I shared this weekend that are important to tell yourself and your loved ones:

  • You are loved by, and matter to, God.
  • No pain lasts forever.
  • There is always hope.
  • Others can help – just ask.

This weekend in worship I shared an important sermon focused on suicide prevention. In this hope-filled message, we looked to those in scripture who struggled with suicidal thoughts, heard from people who have lost loved ones to suicide and learned from professionals offering guidance on how to identify and help those who are struggling with suicidal thoughts.

If you were not able to join us this weekend, you can worship anytime on demand. Just go to and click on one of the three worship services on the page.

We also have a variety of suicide prevention resources on our website: Here are a few resources from this weekend:

  • Sermons: If you would like to re-watch the sermon or share it with a friend, here is the link to the September 8, 2019 sermon. We have two other sermons on the impact of suicide: July 9, 2017 and June 24, 2012.
  • Family Discussion Guide (downloadable pdf)
  • National Suicide Prevention Lifeline: 1-800-273-8255
  • Support Groups for those who have lost loved ones to suicide.
  • Gun Locks: We have a limited number of these available in the Commons of Building B.
  • Suicide Prevention Training, for those who want to go deeper, will be part of our Community Health Fair on Saturday, September 21, from 9:30 am – noon. Learn more and register online.

In Christ’s love,


Adam Hamilton
