Abundant Life Series begins March 6, 2017

This group has two phases:  an initial 5 week exploration of the ‘abundant life’ God desires for us.  We’ll explore this from the emotional, spiritual, physical, mental and social perspectives.  In the second 5 weeks we’ll function as a support group for those folks who have set ‘abundant life’ goals that they wish to work on in a safe, confidential group setting.  Those interested can take the initial 5 weeks alone.  Those wishing to do the  second 5 weeks must have completed the initial phase.

There is no registration fee. Sign up at the church library or email   Bring a journal to the sessions.

Cyber junkie: escape the gaming and internet trap by Roberts  gives compulsive gamers and surfers – and their family and friends – a step-by-step guide for recovery.

Or is the problem an obsession with food? Why can’t I stop eating?: recognizing, understanding, and overcoming food addiction by Danowski gives readers a full understanding of this debilitating condition: its sources, patterns, consequences, and physiological underpinnings. Unlike fad diets and drugs with their side effects, hidden costs, and infamous failure rates, the program outlined in this book goes to the root cause of chronic overeating and puts the tools for a lifelong cure into the hands of anyone willing to accept responsibility for a healthy, happy future. RECOVERY RESOURCE Dan
