January 18th Update:
- Last night, we had a great discussion that focused on Philippians 4:4-7.
- We wrestled with the challenge Paul gives to not be anxious about ANYTHING.
- Each week, I ask one student to share their thoughts on our primary passage. This has been great not only for the students who are asked to stretch their hearts/minds by sharing, but it has been encouraging to the students who get to hear their peers perspective!
- If you're interested in joining us on Zoom on Sunday nights at 6pm, contact me via email (email@example.com).

Series for January: "Hi...I'm Anxious"
Anxiety is defined as, "a feeling of worry, nervousness, or unease, typically about an imminent event or something with an uncertain outcome." Even before a pandemic hit, students were wrestling with anxiety in various ways. Now with everything happening in our world, is it any wonder students are anxious all the time?!?!
During our time together in January, we will discuss what it looks like to work through anxiety as believers in Christ. We acknowledge that the Scripture says 'do not worry.' We also acknowledge that Jesus knew his disciples wrestled with anxiety and STILL stuck by them (hence telling them not to worry).
It is my hope during this series that students will not feel ashamed WHEN (not if) they struggle with anxiety, and that they will learn how to process not just their worries, but all they feel through the lens of the Scriptures and Jesus.
