Wholeness: Living with Life’s Lows – Sept-Oct Series

This series will explore how we can integrate our life “lows” into a larger life of faith in Jesus Christ.  What is it about Christian faith that can help us find wholeness, balance, and integration – so that our “lows” do not feel like separate pieces of life?  The series will offer hope and encouragement to those of us dealing with stress and anxiety, depression, anger, and grief.  God’s love is good news both for those dealing with serious mental illness and for those who care for them.


Breakfast Tailgate – Sundays at 9:30am

Young adults are invited to bring a lawn chair for our 2nd annual “Breakfast Tailgate” and discussion in the parking lot.

Some of the topics we’ll explore this Fall include . . .
Is there really a “happiness dip” that occurs from 35-45 years of age?
What brings you alive – and how can you get more of that in your life?
Are there any parts of your life you feel like you’ve left behind?  Is it too late to reclaim them?
What do you do to keep yourself healthy – physically, emotionally, spiritually?
What makes it hard for you to stay healthy?
Fun facts about anxiety, stress, depression, anger, and grief.
Do you ever worry that there are “unlived” parts of your life?  What can we do about that?

Bring a Friend – Sunday, September 23, 10:30am

Invite a friend, neighbor, family member, or stranger to join us on Sunday, September 23. Visitors will be treated to a plethora of gifts, also known as a “swag bag”.


Breakout Room and Arboretum Visit – Sat. Sept. 29, 9am-4pm

On Saturday, September 29, we are heading to Breakout KC in Leawood. We’ve reserved two Breakout Rooms to test our teamwork, ingenuity, and level of awesome-ness. Afterwards, we will enjoy lunch and a visit to the Arboretum. Sign up online or at the church. The cost is $33 for the Breakout Room and Arboretum. Bring additional money for lunch.
