Family Services provides a variety of support services to assist church leaders as they help members to pursue a life consistent with eternal gospel principles.
Church leaders may contact Family Services to seek advice about individual members who are experiencing social, emotional, and mental health challenges. Possible interventions and solutions may be discussed.
Church leaders may invite Family Services to participate in Stake Self-Reliance Committee meetings, Bishops Welfare Committee meetings, trainings, workshops or devotionals to educate and assist members and/or leaders to better understand and support members dealing with any social, emotional, behavioural and relationship challenges.
Church leaders may invite Family Services to identify and develop church, professional or community resources to assist church leaders and members with specific local challenges.
Church leaders are encouraged to refer to the resources in the Gospel Library app (Life Help & Individuals and Families) and Counselling Resources at ChurchofJesusChrist.org. Other links to Church resources are provided in the Church Leader Resource Guide to Family Services. For more training view Family Services General Leader Training powerpoint presentation.
