9 AM – “Emotional, Mental, or Spiritual? Defining the Struggle” – There are so many different ways to look at our struggles. Psychiatry looks at the brain and chemical imbalances. Psychology looks at the mind, behaviors, and emotions. Many Christians perceive issues as only Spiritual in nature. So, which is it? Studying certain passages in Scriptures will help us navigate this confusing terrain and help us gain a reliable (and Biblical) view.
10:30 AM – “Getting to the Heart of our Struggles” – Whether you are struggling yourself or helping others who struggle, God does not remain silent. Instead, He speaks to us in our pain and He speaks through us to help others. Yet knowing where to start can be difficult. Together, we’ll look at our struggles and our greatest needs for wellness.
11:45 – 12:45 – Lunch
12:45 PM – “Depression” – According to the National Institute for Mental Health, an estimated 19 million people in the United States suffer with depression. Chances are, if you are not someone who struggles with depression, you know someone who does. Depression left unaddressed can also lead to suicide. Having a better and Biblical understanding of depression can not only bring encouragement and healing, but can also save lives!
1:45 – 2:00 – Break
2:00- 3:00 – “Anxiety” – Fear is not only one of the greatest motivators of actions, but it is also one of the greatest paralyzing agents. Anxiety Disorders, Obsessive Compulsive Disorders, and panic attacks all fall under the Biblical “Category” of fear. Having a greater understanding of our fears will take us to a greater understanding of the One who pleads, “Fear not. For I am with you.”
