Creating Caring Faith Communities

Sunday, March 26, 2023 - 12:30pm to 02:00pm

Elim Lutheran, Scandia

Learn about mental illnesses, the impact of negative attitudes and five things each of us can do to make Minnesota a better place for people who experience mental illness. We will discuss multiple ideas for beginning or enhancing a mental health ministry in your faith community.


Learn more on Elim's website. This event is part of a Lenten campaign at Elim that explores how faith communities and mental health issues intersect. Seth Perry, pastor of Elim, kicked off the series with a personal video about his experiences as a pastor with Bipolar disorder. His intention is to create a constructive and supportive dialogue about mental health and church life. Watch Seth's video


This event is funded with support from the synod's mental health mini-grants.
