Comfort My People Committee – Danville, IL

First Presbyterian Church of Danville - Amy Chrisman, Local ArtistFirst Presbyterian Church in Danville, Illinois observes Mental Health Awareness each Sunday during the month of May.  Comfort My People Committee offers bulletin inserts, moments for mission, special music, and skits.  We have a resource table offering books and pamphlets about various mental illnesses each Sunday in May.  Our church library now has donated books as well.  We recognize the ever present stigma which is often associated with having a mental illness and with loving someone who is diagnosed with a mental illness.  Our hope is to encourage families and friends with welcoming Christian love.  We strive to live up to our church’s moto – “The church with a heart, in the heart of the city”.
