We have been invited by our partners in the Missouri Mid-South Conference of the United Church of Christ to participate in these Suicide Prevention Seminars that they are presenting across the state in November.

Suicide Prevention Seminar

Let’s face it, suicide is a tough discussion to have with our youth.  Let’s get together and learn how to have a healthy conversation that could potentially save someone’s life.

We will:

Look at suicide in the bible

Learn what a PIT crew is

Practice a discussion you could have with someone you think might be suicidal

Learn and collaborate with each other as to how to deal with the topic of suicide in your youth groups

Cindy Birkner, youth ministry resource coordinator for the Missouri Mid-South Conference, will be hosting this seminar in different parts of the conference.
