Adult Education topics during the Education Hour
Sundays 9:45 - 10:45 a.m.
The First Grounds For Hope Bible Study of the fall session will be a study of the book,
Get Out of Your Head: Stopping the Spiral of Toxic Thoughts, the New York Times bestseller written by Jennie Allen. Jennie is the founder and visionary behind IF:Gathering, an organization that equips women to know God more deeply and to disciple others in their own lives.
Are your thoughts holding you captive? I’ll never be good enough. Other people have better lives than I do. God couldn’t really love me. Jennie Allen knows what it’s like to swirl in a spiral of destructive thoughts, but she also knows we don’t have to stay stuck in toxic thinking patterns. As she discovered in her own life,
God built a way for us to escape that downward spiral. Freedom comes when we refuse to be victims to our thoughts and realize we have already been equipped with power from God to fight and win the war for our minds.
In Get Out of Your Head, Jennie inspires and equips us to transform our emotions, our outlook, and even our
circumstances by taking control of our thoughts. Our enemy is determined to get in our heads to make us feel helpless, overwhelmed, and incapable of making a difference for the kingdom of God. But when we submit our minds to Christ, the promises and goodness of God flood our lives in remarkable ways. It starts in your head. And from there, the possibilities are endless.
This study, which is based primarily on the book of Philippians, will be conducted over a minimum of 6 weeks and will begin on Sunday, September 20th. There will be a fee of $15 to cover the cost of the book and study materials, otherwise you can purchase the book online through Amazon or other book sellers. If you wish to participate in the study each week on Sunday mornings at 9:45 a.m., my polling resulted in a majority opting for online meeting, therefore we will be meeting on zoom. Please contact Pastor Jim or Ann Wood in the church office to let us know of your wish to be a part of the study ahead of time in order to receive materials and the zoom link.
