Abundant Living

Struggling with anxiety, depression, fear? Are you a people pleaser stuck in co-dependent relationships? Has the dysfunction of your family dynamics wounded you? Do you find yourself repeating the same family patterns that you swore you would never repeat yourself? Has the brokenness of life caused a disconnect between you and God? Do you find it just too hard to forgive those who have crushed your spirit? We all struggle with hurts of this world and broken relationships. Living in bondage is not the life God envisions for us. Jesus says in John 10:10 that he calls us to a live a life of abundance. In this group we will unpack how we can experience a life of freedom from the many hardships our wold has to offer. We will dissect such struggles as forgiveness, shame, spiritual warfare, and self worth and how to acquire freedom from them. This group is a study based group. Anyone is welcome. It is interactive, so come with your questions. Handouts will be provided. You will just need to bring a pen and Bible. At the end of each meeting there will be opportunities for personal prayer and ministry.
