Disclosure for Community Care
Community Care is a service offered by CityChurch to help individuals in crisis, hereby referred to as Care Recipient, identify their immediate next step. Due to the high demand from a large community, Community Care sessions are limited to 50 minutes and two occurrences per year.
Community Care Leaders, hereinafter referred to as CCLs, advise purely from a Free Grace Theological Perspective. CCLs are not licensed professionals and do not have the training or skill for the long term process of repairing severe emotional or relational issues.
Additionally, CityChurch does not provide, in any form or manner, psychiatric treatment or clinical mental health counseling. Referrals to licensed mental health professionals may be provided upon request.
CCLs reserve the right to cease any Community Care session, at any time, for any reason.
Information shared by the Care Recipient will be held in confidence within the Community Care Leaders team.
