There are times in all of our lives that the path becomes bumpy, and things may not proceed as we would hope or pray that they would. At times like these, it’s good to know that there’s a Family of Faith behind us to help us over the rough patches. Sometimes it’s due to illness; sometimes it’s due to financial situations. Sometimes individuals or families need counseling for a wide variety of reasons. FPCP’s clergy may be called upon to assist members or guests with finding the right kind of support in times of need. The agencies listed below are those that FPCP has a long-standing relationship with and that are frequently used for assistance in specific areas of need.
Please contact one of the clergy if you need counseling in those areas of need in your life or the life of your family, or if you need help in obtaining the support of one of the following agencies:
