RESOURCES

"NOT ALONE" PANEL DISCUSSION & MENTAL HEALTH RESOURCES

If you or someone you love is struggling mentally or emotionally, you are not alone! We are here to help you find hope and support in whatever you’re going through. Below are some resources our pastoral team has gathered for you to watch or share.

IS IT OK TO NOT BE OK?

Yes, it is. A good first step would be to watch these short introductory videos about anxiety, depression and suicide. They will help orient you to a Christ-centered approach to the most common mental health problems.

HOW DO I KNOW IF I OR SOMEONE I LOVE IS DEALING WITH ANXIETY, DEPRESSION OR SUICIDAL THOUGHTS? AND WHAT DO I DO NEXT?

Recently, one of our pastors sat down with some local counselors and therapists. In their conversation, they talk about signs to look out for and helpful tips on how to grow toward greater mental and spiritual health.

Watch this panel discussion "NOT ALONE" here or below.

IS THERE ANYONE I CAN TALK TO ABOUT MY MENTAL, EMOTIONAL AND SPIRITUAL HEALTH?

Yes! We offer groups and Care Partners who are ready to come alongside you no matter where you are on your journey. Please reach out to Deb on the Care Team today.

DOOR CREEK CHURCH MESSAGES

ARTICLES & BOOKS

6:8 Devotional Journal

Door Creek Church’s Micah 6:8 Task Force spent several months together, reading through the entire Bible to discover what it teaches about doing justice and loving mercy. Pick up a hard copy, or download the 6:8 devotional to retrace our steps and discover its teaching for yourself.

“The Gospel and the Poor” by Tim Keller

Tim Keller offers a concise summary of the Bible’s teaching about doing justice and mercy on behalf of the poor.

“Is Black Lives Matter the New Civil Rights Movement?”

In this article, Dr. Mika Edmondson provides a biblical and wise framework for how followers of Christ can discern truth as we navigate a world filled with movements like Black Lives Matter.

Generous Justice by Tim Keller

In this helpful book, Tim Keller explores a “life of justice empowered by an experience of grace.” Read this to see how the gospel directly connects to doing justice and loving mercy.

Redemptive Poverty Work by DR. Alvin Sanders

Dr. Alvin Sanders’ short book helps us avoid the common pitfalls well-intentioned Christians make as they begin to practice justice and mercy among people in poverty.

Uncommon Church by Dr. Alvin Sanders

In Uncommon Church, Dr. Sanders shows how community transformation is possible when churches like ours work with people in poor communities instead of treating them like goodwill projects. 

The Color of Compromise by Dr. Jemar Tisby

Dr. Jemar Tisby reveals the subtle, but deep ways racism has wounded the American church. Reading this is both painful and inspirational and will provide wisdom for improved race relations within the church.

ONLINE CLASSES

The Beginning of Life & Abortion – TGC Course 

Part of doing justice is caring for women who face unexpected pregnancies and defending the unborn. This free online class provides a biblical and scientific introduction to abortion for those wanting to practice justice and mercy in this way.

Ministry & Disabilities

What does practicing justice and mercy look like when it comes to people with disabilities? This free online course serves as a helpful introduction on how the church can come alongside this beautiful but often overlooked community.

RACE PANEL DISCUSSION

Panel discussion on race, hosted by Pastor David from the Northside Madison Campus.

As a predominantly white community, we want to share with our brothers and sisters of color our commitment to face our failings, embrace our learning and love as Jesus first loved us. Full version available on YouTube and Vimeo.

*Please Note: The recording software cut out in a couple of areas, and those sections were replaced with audio directly from the camera. The sound quality was impacted during those times.

They are the equipment God gives us to benefit others, reflecting His love to the people around us. We don't choose our gift or earn them. Spiritual gifts are given to us. They reveal that God is here and working to fulfill His purpose in the church. We need each other! Needs are met when the church body is thriving and using our gifts in love.

GOD IN THE STORM eBook

GOD IN THE STORM

Now offered as a free eBook!

“When the storms of life come, we are most often caught by surprise—like lightning on a sunny day. This book comes out of a time like that, when my wife Lori was diagnosed with breast cancer—no family history, in perfect health, and then overnight her doctor tells us she’s not going to make it. Our five kids' ages spanned between 5 and 17. The fear was suffocating and at times overwhelming, yet day after day through His daily kindnesses, God held us up.

Lori and I trust that our story would encourage you and those you know going through a “storm.” God is with us and for us and able to use hard things for good in our lives. May this book draw you to Jesus and make you more like Him! Marc Maillefer, Author
