9 Keys to Contentment - May 30th

9 Keys to Contentment-2

Contentment is something that we know about but that we don’t always experience. It´s easier for us to relate with feelings of tension and anxiety than with those of contentment and peace. We live in a world that has a rapid pace and one million reasons for us to be stressed, nevertheless we can learn how to experience contentment even if the circumstances around us don’t change.

“9 Keys to Contentment” is a study of the Book of Philippians and how Paul the Apostle lived a life of contentment in the mist of prisons and persecution. He said in Philippians 4:11: “I’ve learned to be content in whatever situation I’m in.”

We invite you to join us and see how you too can learn to be content in whatever situation you are in.

It will be an interactive class/workshop where we will discover together how each of these 9 keys can open our hearts to contentment and joy.

KEY 1. Trust in God KEY 2. Praise and Joy KEY 3. Overcome Worry KEY 4. Renew the Mind KEY 5. Justified by Christ KEY 6. Leave the Past in the Past KEY 7. Obey the Lord KEY 8. First Things First KEY 9. Serve Others

Note: Based on a study of Sharon Steele.

Starts Tuesday, May 30th,1:00-2:30pm 6 Week Class Class Fee: $30 Facilitator: Astrid Gale

The Ultimate Journey - Ongoing

What if you’re not really the way you’ve come to see yourself? As you travel the first phase of The Ultimate Journey, you’ll unpack the lies that have held you back, tripped you up, and even derailed you at times. Phase I is a safe harbor where you’ll unload excess cargo and baggage that have weighed you down for years. As you do this, you’ll be freed up to chart a new course that will lead you into an incredible love relationship with your Creator. This class is a personal journey where you will process through your life. Each group includes 3 participants and 2 facilitators, creating a safe, intimate environment to do the work of restoration and healing. Due to the personal nature of this class, attendance is mandatory for all sessions, and we encourage thoughtful consideration whether this is the right time to go through this process.

10 weeks

$225: $175 for the class; $50 for materials (ordered separately)

Important Note: Phase 1 has been a deeply transformative experience for hundreds of women and men. Because of this, Phase 1 consistently has a waiting list, and sessions often fill up in advance. If you are interested in taking Phase 1 at any time in the future, we strongly encourage you to complete and return the registration form. You will not be put on the waiting list until we have your completed registration form. Once you are on the waiting list, we will place you in a class as we have facilitators available. You would have the option to defer to the next session if openings do not match your availability.

The Ultimate Journey: Phase II - Ongoing

As you live out this intimate, bonded relationship with your Creator, you will learn to draw everything you need from Him.
