Do You Need Counseling?
Receive Free Biblical Counseling From Trained Counselors
There is always hope! We understand that there are times in life where you just need a helping hand. We want to come alongside you to encourage you with Biblical truth that will make a lasting impact.
There Is Always Hope
We believe that God has given us all we need to know Him and to live in a way that is pleasing to Him. All our difficulties may not evaporate. However, when a person willingly submits to God's instructions and clings to his promises there is hope and help.
Common Issues We Help With
Our experienced counselors are able to help people through a variety of issues. Some of the more common problems we routinely help people through include:
- Those struggling in their marriage
- Parents in raising children
- Those dealing with sexual sin
- Those struggling with their emotions (e.g. depression or anger).
Regardless of the issue you bring to us, we believe that God’s Word (the Bible) is sufficient to answer any of life’s problems and questions.
Our counselors, whether they are a pastor or laypersons, go through a rigorous Biblical counseling training program and have experience helping people through similar issues to your own.
What to Expect
At this time, counseling sessions are offered on Mondays from 1:30 pm to 7:45 pm. Most counseling sessions take between 1 to 1.5 hours. Here’s what you can expect during that time:
Privacy and Care
Our staff will care for you and treat you with respect. Everything will be held in strict confidence except where, in the counselor’s judgment, there is a Biblical requirement to involve others (e.g. criminal activity).
Encouragement toward Christ-likeness
Our staff will encourage you in your successes and exhort you to think and behave in a way that pleases Jesus Christ.
We’ll assign you homework to take home between your weekly counseling sessions. The assignments are meant to encourage lasting change.
Give Us Some Time
Habits are not developed overnight, and new habits will take time to develop. In most cases, we ask individuals to commit to regular counseling appointments for a period of 3 to 4 months.
Since First Baptist Church of Reed City provides the facilities and the counselors volunteer their time we can offer the counseling free of charge. However, out of respect for our staff we require a $10 deposit which is forfeited for last minute cancellations. If a counselee leaves counseling or graduates from counseling without a cancellation the deposit is returned.
