October 4 Grand Opening
Matt and Edith Anderson
In the beginning, all was perfect. With the fall of man came physical problems, emotional struggles, and a spiritual disconnect from God. The fall affected our mind, body, and soul. Just as physical illness impacts our overall well-being, so do emotional struggles. Emotional struggles can steal our sense of hope and cloud our sense of purpose. Sadly 50% of adults will develop depression, anxiety, self-harm, eating disorders, bipolar disorder, PTSD, borderline personality disorder, schizophrenia, or some other mental illness in their lifetime. The good news is that there is HOPE when we seek God's face and accept help from the body of Christ in times of need. On Sunday, Stephen Wise from Cornerstone Counseling Center of Chicago will join Pastor Asa in sharing how we can find hope and purpose even you we don't feel it. You are not defined by your emotional struggle or your illness and you are not alone. Experience hope and help break the silence and stigma. Join us at 9:30 and 11:30am and invite someone you know needs to hear this message of hope.
Worship with us on Sunday, September 6th at 9:30 and 11:30 am and then enjoy an outdoor picnic with food, fun, family and friends.
