Wednesday Nights @ Emmanuel
When friends and neighbors face a difficult situation, we often don’t know how to respond especially when their crisis appears overwhelming. As a result, we do nothing and our friends and neighbors suffer alone. Jesus has called us to “love our neighbor” (Mark 12:31).
“Where is Your Heart” is a study designed by Pastor Shaun to help give you tips on how to understand the feelings that your neighbor or loved one is experiencing and some practical ideas on how to help and encourage them. Each lesson is driven by a biblical view and will include related scriptures, prayer and some resource ideas for further study and encouragement. We'll learn how we can work with our local agencies to help those who are struggling with life.
All participating students will receive some basic counseling / coaching skills and resources for ministering to those who need more than just a hug.
We will cover nearly 40 crisis situations
over the course of 2018 including:
Domestic Violence, Natural Disasters, Divorce
Rape & Sexual Assault, Homicide
Substance Abuse, Burglary & Theft
Imprisonment, Kidnapping, Unemployment
Death of a Loved One, Eating Disorders
