As you may already know, earlier this year we launched the Military & First Responder Ministry at The Rock of KC Church. We know how life experiences can be unique within these career fields and the stress it can put on the family unit. We have a unique opportunity to be the hands and feet of Jesus within our church and community by supporting these amazing families through outlets such as discipleship, CONNECT groups, and courses like REBOOT Recovery!
The sad truth is that for many veterans, police officers, firefighters, and paramedics, the stress doesn’t end when the deployment ends or when they flip off the siren.
The stats paint an ugly picture:
- Over 20 veterans complete suicide every day.
- The #1 killer of law enforcement officers is suicide.
- 15% of firefighters have reported one or more suicide attempts.
- 38% of EMS providers reported contemplating suicide, and 7% reported attempting suicide.
And our community isn’t immune. But we're doing something about it.
Since getting involved with the REBOOT Alliance, we have seen the devastating impact of trauma but also the hope and healing that can come afterward. That’s why I’m asking for your help to make sure our community can continue to offer trauma healing courses to military and first responder families at no cost to them.
Would you please consider partnering with us through giving?
A gift of any amount goes a long way and 100% of the proceeds go directly to funding course materials, providing childcare, and feeding the participants and their families each time we meet through the 12-week course. All of which provided at absolutely NO COST to participants!
