stretched thin - week 4


october 28, 2018

A few things about this message series:

  • The subject of mental health is a real thing and it is hitting our culture in a big way.

  • Our current message series, Stretched Thin is a conversation about stress, anxiety, and mental health. And our goal is to open up this conversation, make us more aware of this issue, and encourage those who struggle realize that they are not alone

  • We hope to not give the impression that we can address or fix or that we are the experts, but we want to bring this subject out into the light and offer hope, healing, and help.

  • If there is only one message you hear, hear this: You are not alone.

  • And we want to create some healthy frameworks for helpful and hopeful discussions, clarify some distinctions (clinical vs. situational), and give some practical advice/help – where and how to move forward. 

  • God cares about every part of us - mind, body, spirit - He made it all - not just our bible knowledge, church attendance, and eternity.
