Join us on Sundays for our new series Hopeful Minds beginning January 17!
5:15 to 6:15 pm on Zoom. Watch your email for the link! Friends are welcome!
Hopeful Minds is a project developed by iFred, the International Foundation for Research and Education on Depression. It is based on research that suggests hope is teachable (a skill). The aim is to equip students with the tools they need to define, learn and grow a hopeful mindset and prevent hopelessness around the world.
Hopelessness is the leading predictor of suicide, and the number one symptom of depression. Higher hope, on the other hand, corresponds to greater academic achievement, improved health, increased productivity, less anxiety and depression, less violence, more social support and connection, and less loneliness.

We will be using pieces of this curriculum along with turning to Scripture to look at Biblical hope and what it means to have Godly hope. Right now it is easy to feel hopeless. We as Christians need to remember that our hope is in the Lord and NOTHING can take that away!.
The link will be emailed to you. Contact Candi at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
We begin in January 2021. Young people will have a chance to explore what it means to believe in Jesus with a look at his life in the gospel of Luke, through prayer walks and in conversations with mentors who share their doubts, feelings and belief in Jesus. A letter will be sent to parents by December 15 with more details.
Youth Leaders: Jenny Baker, Glenn Haas, Damian Ford, Hazelanne Karabudak, Art and Lindsay Shull, Andy and Justine Smith.
