If you have a pastoral need or a question, we would be happy to help you and/or meet with you.
Valley Christian Church maintains a monetary benevolence fund, supported solely by the church body, called the Macedonian Benevolence Fund (Romans 15:26), to offer financial support and other forms of assistance to individuals and families within the church family in crisis and need. Depending upon the situation, Valley's Macedonian Benevolence Fund also offers financial counseling, spiritual support, and information about community resources. If you are in need of some assistance or know of someone who is, contact Pastor Dave Burkum. If you are able to help others who are in need, Valley Christian encourages you to contribute to the Macedonian Benevolence Fund.

CIGNA TELEPHONIC COUNSELING
Cigna (a company one of our church members works for) has opened up a disaster response line for the Coronavirus. ANYONE can call and schedule a telephonic (over the phone) consultation that lasts between 20-30 mins at no cost. It is a no-cost way to help people dealing with mental or behavioral issues resulting from the current coronavirus health emergency. The consultation is with a mental health clinician (professional counselor or therapist) and can be used any number of times.
If you would like to use this service, please call 866.912.1687. You will be asked for your name, DOB, address, and phone number to set up an account. You will also be asked who they work for to see if that company already has an employee assistance program with Cigna. THEN you will be able to schedule a 3-hour callback window where the clinician will call out to you for the 20-30 min consultation.
