Meets: Monday Nights from 6:30-8:30

  • Theme: Ladies Rise Above: Utilizes biblical truths and personal assessment tools in a large group setting in order to encourage and empower women & teens to Rise Above lifes discouragements and disappointments.
  • Description: Come join us at Rise Above where we will examine all three areas of personal discouragement:
    1. Spiritual Discouragement - We are taught in Sunday School that God is faithful, loving, and kind - while at the same time, our discouraging life events have led us to believe that he is distant, untrustworthy, and unjust. Rise Above will help you to overcome the conflict between the facts in your head and the feelings in your heart.
    2. Emotional Discouragement - We often try to fill our 7 inner core needs with things that were never meant to fill them. Rise Above will help you to identify your own personal needs and encourage you to begin filling them in God honoring ways that will bring true fulfillment and joy!
    3. Physical Discouragement - Our brains are the organ of thought, action, personality, and feeling. They help to determine our choices, behaviors, and attitudes, as well as how we relate to others. They are an extremely important part of our lives, yet we rarely consider what they need in order to develop spiritual and emotional well-being. Rise Above will examine topics such as: Food and behavior, blood sugar levels, serotonin and beta-endorphins, the importance of sleep, food intolerance, dehydration and much more!
    NO MATTER WHAT YOU HAVE EXPERIENCED.... RISE ABOVE WILL ENCOURAGE YOU AS YOU BEGIN TRANSFORMING YOUR HEART AND MIND THROUGH THE POWER OF JESUS CHRIST!
