Bible Question // What Does the Bible Say About Suicide?

Suicide is never the answer, because there is always hope - even when we can't see it! Suicidal thoughts and actions are so common, and talking about it will not make anyone more likely to do it. So let's talk about it! Plus, God has a lot to say to those of us who struggle and those of us who have loved ones who are struggling. This week, Amber Dismutè (Student Care Coordinator) dives into what the Bible says about suicide and what God thinks of those who struggle.

If a loved one, a friend, or yourself needs immediate assistance please use:
• National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 1-800-273-8255 (TALK) or 911.

If you find yourself or a loved one is struggling but are not in need of immediate assistance please reference the following resources:
• Lutheran Church of Hope Care Team (515) 222-1520 (We can get connected to counselors and ministry areas to assist you)
• NAMI- National Alliance on Mental Illness ( They have several meetings that you can find for your area listed at )

Ignition is the high school ministry of Lutheran Church of Hope. If you live in the central Iowa area, we would love for you to join us for Ignition and our weekend worship gatherings. You can find worship times online at

1) Pick a memory verse once a month and try memorizing it together. (recommended Hebrews 10:24-25)
2) Text each other Bible verses and/or encouragement once a week.
3) Pick a charity or missionary and raise money together for them
4) Every Sunday pick a new prayer partner in our group then you pray for that person and text them encouragement that week.
5) Do a Bible App devotional together
