THIS SUNDAY | 7PM | VIA ZOOM
CALVARY ED TALKS PRESENTS
"CONFRONTING ANXIETY:
HOPE & HEALING FROM PSYCHOLOGY & SPIRITUALITY"

FEATURING DR. STEPHANIE GRISWOLD & REV. DR. GERALD HIESTAND

The weight of consistent anxiety can be especially difficult to overcome in our modern society. It hinders our ability to flourish in our lives. It can have severe consequences for our work, school, health, and relationships. We need support and resources for our mental health and wholeness now more than ever. 

We invite you to join us for a special CalvaryEd Talks event this Sunday, May 17, at 7PM. Hear from Dr. Stephanie Griswold and Pastor Gerald Hiestand as we seek to bring together ancient wisdom and modern insights on this important topic. 

Besetting anxiety has affected the lives of more and more people in our society, regardless of their age or background––children and teens, adults, and seniors. If you or someone you love is fighting this battle, we invite you to join us for this night of encouragement and insight.

Zach Wagner writes: "I’ve been going through this with my three-year-old this month and let me just tell you that this is a genuine delight to read. There are legitimate laugh out loud moments, tons of wit, and deeper insight for children and adults than you may expect. It would only take you an hour or two to read in one sitting. I highly recommend giving it a go and joining us for some lighthearted discussion on May 18."

The Calvary Book Club meets the 3rd Monday of the month to discuss a book that both intellectually stimulates and challenges our faith. Attend every month or jump in when a particular book grabs your attention.

SPECIAL NEEDS
SUPPORT GROUP

On Sunday, May 24 at 9AM, the Special Needs Support Group plans to meet via Zoom.

This is a group intended to engage God as we live together and encourage one another in a life that is in some way touched by special needs. In a relaxed atmosphere, we will together unpack this life and God’s role in it by celebrating victories and answers to prayer, sharing ways we see God working, looking for wisdom, bearing each other’s burdens, and encouraging one another.

GOT ZOOM?

During the last few months, many of us have had the opportunity to connect with one another using Zoom. While nothing beats being together in person, this technology allows us to continue to see each other's faces (only if you want) and hear from one another.

We want to ensure that everyone who would like to join in our Zoom gatherings is able to do so. Do you need assistance getting set up with Zoom? We have individuals who would be happy to help. Please reach out to Caroline Wittman to request Zoom assistance.
