Counseling Resource

We desire to spiritually support our members through the different challenges of life.  Our primary vehicle for spiritual support are Life Groups. Life Groups are a place where members can share needs, pray for each and receive spiritual support and encouragement.

While we hope that many needs can be meet in small groups, we realize that often times a member may need a trained counselor or a specialized support group to provide the needed help.

While our church does not have “in house” counseling, or support groups, we can point you to two local organizations that can help.  These local resources can supplement the spiritual support our church provides.  One of the organizations focuses on counseling, the other offers  support groups.  To learn more, check out our Counseling Resource Page.

Creating a Climate for Getting Along

Here are the thoughts from yesterday's topic.   The Bible passage we looked at is is 1 Peter chapter 3, verses 8-12

1) Embrace the inner qualities for getting along.  Vs 8 “harmony”

·      Sympathy- is there someone I need to be supportive and understanding towards?

·      Brotherly love – Is there someone I need to love even if they’re hard to be around?

·      Compassion – Is there someone I need to soften my heart towards?

·      Humble minded – Am I willing to admit when I’m wrong, or when I need help?

2) Break the cycle of conflict Vs 9 “repay…blessing”

  • Is there a situation in which I need to do right even though the other person is doing wrong?

 3)  Follow the three “musts” for experiencing God’s good life. Vs 10-11  “must… love life….good days

·      We must watch our words  “keep tongue from evil”

James 1:19   My dear brothers, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry

·      We must rethink our responses  “turn from evil”

·      We must monitor our motives  “seek peace”

4)  Live in a life that God is pleased to bless. Vs 12 “eyes of the Lord are on the righteous”

How to Help People Change

Here are the thoughts from yesterday's service.....

How to Help People Change: Biblical Principles for Influencing Others (Even Hard Headed Spouses).

1) Start with the one person you can always change - you

2) Start with a Supportive Attitude. Vs 1 “submissive”

3) Realize that people need to be won over, not pushed over. Vs 1 “won over”

4) If necessary, take a break from talking about it. Vs 1 “Without words”

5) Set the example of the change you’re looking for. Vs. 2 “When they see”

6) Give it time. Vs 2 “ When…."

7) Focus on changing what really matters. Vs 3-4 “Outward…Inner”

8) Prioritize the change that lasts -  Spiritual Change vs 4 “spirit”

9) Put your hope in the only one who truly changes lives – God! vs 5 “put their hope in God”

You can listen to the weekend message online
