Who welcomes new babies to your congregation?

Is the Cradle Roll, Guild of the Christ Child, or New Baby Ministry equipped to help a young mother suffering from the most common complication of childbirth? 

 

The goal of Project Healthy Moms from Mental Health America of Georgia is to increase awareness, identification, and treatment of PMADs and support for those suffering while also reducing the stigma. You may know PMAD as postnatal depression. This year over 25,000 Georgia women who are pregnant or have just given birth are likely to suffer.  The feelings of worthlessness and depression have long reaching effects on their young families; they may lead to violence or suicide.

As a congregational leader you may even be the first person to recognize that something is wrong.

Are you prepared to help?

Is your church’s baby or health ministry aware of the resources available to help?

Take a look at the website for Project Healthy Moms.  You will find the information for Moms, Family, and Friends, valuable. The Online Tool Kit contains a screening assessment in English and in Spanish. The WarmLine offers young mothers contact with another mother who has experienced PMAD. There are information on peer support groups, a resource list, and more.

Lutheran Resource in Response to Gun Violence

The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, saddened by the all-too-frequent occurrences of gun violence in the U.S., invites you on a journey of prayer, scripture, stories, and church teachings with this resource, A 60-Day Journey Towards Justice in a Culture of Gun Violence - an ELCA Resource  Through daily observances, it calls us to work toward the prevention of gun violence as people of God who strive for justice and peace in all the world. It may be used for individual reflection, group Bible study, adult education sessions, and congregational daily devotions. This began on June 16 but can be used at any time.
