Jeanne Ley, Care and Concern
Crisis needs can strike any of us at any time. If that moment has come for you, turn to us. If we are unable to give you direct assistance, we have extensive knowledge of crisis agencies, churches and organizations in the Lake County area that can give you the help you need.
If you just need to talk or have a prayer request, please call the church office at 847-234-1001 for immediate help.
If you are homeless, your best first contact is PADS of Lake County. You can reach them at (847) 689-4357.
If you need counseling for a marital, family or personal problem, email Jeanne Ley, our Director of Care and Concern.
If you attend Christ Church and find yourself in a situation (a new baby, sudden illness, surgery or a family crisis) where you could really benefit from not having to worry about meals, call Jeanne Ley at 847-234-1001 or email her.
We make every effort to have someone there for you at all times. A pastor is on duty to speak with you about any spiritual matters you need to discuss. If you attend the Highland Park or Crossroads campuses, our Lake Forest office hours are available to you as well.
Call | 847-234-1001
Lake Forest Campus hours | 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday to Friday
After hours | Call 847-234-1001 and listen to the message. We will forward your call to someone who can help.
Need prayer? The best way to get your prayer request to us is by using the prayer request form or by calling the church during office hours at 847-234-1001. On the weekends, prayer teams are in the buildings throughout the services, and will be delighted to pray for or with you. Just ask someone with an Ask Me nametag. A prayer room is located at the Lake Forest campus.
If you are married, we can help you to keep your marriage strong. Letting God be the center of your marriage, and learning what the Bible says about how to keep your marriage healthy are both important keys to staying happy and staying together. We currently offer the following:
Starting Right is a unique premarital workshop opportunity for couples to grow together in Christ as they learn from licensed counselors and pastoral staff. Contact Jeanne Ley at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
PREPARE Inventory All couples are encouraged to take this relationship inventory that provides measurements in 10 areas showing where your strengths are and where there could be growth. Contact Jeanne Ley to get an activation code to take the PREPARE Inventory online.
The Alpha Marriage Course is an opportunity for spouses to connect over a meal and watch a video on topics such as communicating effectively, resolving conflict, healing past hurts, making each other feel loved, recognizing the importance of good sex, and having fun together. Visit the classes page for more information.
Counseling can be arranged through Christ Church if your marriage has hit a rocky patch. Most counseling is done through Christian counseling agencies outside the church, but other arrangements may be made depending on your circumstances. We also offer Premarital Counseling. Call Jeanne Ley at 847-457-7250 or email her at email@example.com to get help.
