In March 2020, we thought we’d be sheltering in place for two weeks to keep Covid-19 at bay… 

We’re now 18 months in and there seems to be no end in sight. Some of us have navigated this pandemic fairly well, there are those in our community who have not.

In a recent study conducted by the University of Minnesota Center for Infectious Disease and Research, before the pandemic, the rate of children’s depression and anxiety were estimated to be 8.5% and 11.6%, The study found that one in four children are reporting depression and one in five are reporting anxiety, that’s a 20 to 25% increase.

As the pandemic continues, continued research indicates that the numbers will continue to climb.

Country Club United Methodist Church hosts a community prayer event each year, and this year we will be focusing on coping skills for the whole family. 

While the biggest jump in anxiety and depression has been in our children, all of us have been affected in some way. Our keynote speaker Dr. Rebeca Chow, Ph.D. will lead a discussion addressing how the pandemic has affected all of us at different stages in our lives.

After her address and FREE coffee and breakfast snacks, there will be four different breakout sessions to choose from.

Registration is required! We will follow city ordinances in regards to Covid safety. Masks must be worn at all times when in the building. 

Online Registration for the event will begin Tuesday, August 24, 2021.
