Chalice Weekly Family Update

January 7, 2021

January’s theme is… Imagination

Sunday Morning Service at 10am

Set Your Imagination Free

with Rev. Nica Eaton-Guinn

As we dive into our theme of imagination this month, we explore what can happen when we allow our imagination to guide our lives. Can we free ourselves from our day-to-day habits and beliefs to thinking outside the box and creating a life beyond our wildest imagination? Join us for an interactive service setting your imagination free.

A year ago, we were hearing rumblings of a new virus, not knowing how that it would completely turn our world upside down. Though many of us found ways to cope and be creative, many still became depressed, overwhelmed, and withdrawn.

From young children to teens to adults, your mental health is important. You are not alone. The Ventura chapter of the National Alliance for Mental Illness (NAMI) offers free programs using support groups, classes, and webinars, plus many more resources.

You can also call 211, a free service available in Ventura County, to speak with someone about accessing many services including mental health assistance for people of all ages through Wellness Everyday.

Finally, Chalice is blessed to have a wonderfully caring and helpful Pastoral Care Team. If you need someone to talk to, send an email to Along with the Pastoral Care Team, Sam Dickerson and Rev. Nica Eaton-Guinn are always here for you.

You are loved!
