Keeping Cool When You're Hot: Strategies for Managing Anger

Min. Roline Thomas

Anger is one letter short of danger! It is not a sin to be angry. The Bible tells us to be angry and not sin in our anger. You will be taught the real purpose for this God-given emotion. Learn effective ways to minimize negative responses in heated situations.
 
Toxic Faith: Dealing with Church Hurt and False Hope

Pastor Earnest Thomas

I've done everything the preacher said. I sowed a faith seed. I named and claimed it. So why am I still broke? Why am I still sick? Why is my house in foreclosure? Is it a lack of faith? When will I get my blessing? This class will help you discover the answer to many of these questions and help you turn your faith in the right direction.


Money on My Mind: Stretching the Dollar
Bro. Alvin Rogers

The economy is crazy; unemployment numbers off the roof. If you have a job, paydays don't come fast enough, and there is never enough money at the end of the month. But there is a biblical principle of "seed time and harvest" that does work. Yes, there are professional counselors to help get your bills on track, but to find financial freedom, you must know and follow biblical principles. Find out what these biblical principles are to help you stretch your dollar.

From Victim to Victor: Help for Sexual and Domestic Abuse
Min. Teresa Collins, Joliet, Illinois

"And we know that all things work together..." this is a scripture that is often quoted when people don't know what else to say. But if you are the victim of sexual or domestic abuse, you won't agree with that script, because you can't see anything "good" coming from that abuse. However, you can become the victor. It takes courage and help from others. Come and hear the real-life testimony of a "victim-turned victor".



Session 2 - 10:45 am - 12:00 pm

Marriage Enrichment: Adultery Proof Your Marriage

Pastor Earnest & Minister Roline Thomas

Is there really a way to adultery proof my marriage? How do I make sure me or my spouse won't have an affair? Is keeping tabs on my spouse the best way to prevent an affair from occurring? This question and many more will be addressed and answered from the Word of God in this class. Yes, you can adultery proof your marriage and learn to trust God in and for everything.

Moving On, Living Again: Life After Divorce
Sis. Bonnie Richards

Despite your best efforts the marriage ended in divorce and now it feels like you cannot move forward with life. This class will give you some life skills to move ahead with your life after divorce. You will see divorce as a curve in the road and not a dead end street. Yes, you can live again!

Surviving Storms: Anchoring in Hardships and Disappointments
Min. Michael Woods

Some storms come unannounced...some are predicted...but the truth of the matter is storms do come and they cause hardships in our lives. Storms will leave us disappointed with ourselves, others, and our circumstances. The song says "my soul is anchored..." and actually the only way to survive a storm is to be anchored. This doesn't mean a ship isn't tossed around and filled with water, but the anchor will keep the ship from floating away. So this is the question . . . what are you anchored by?

From Victim to Victor: Help for Sexual and Domestic Abuse (Repeated)
Min. Teresa Collins, Joliet, Illinois

"And we know that all things work together..." this is a scripture that is often quoted when people don't know what else to say. But if you are the victim of sexual or domestic abuse, you won't agree with that script, because you can't see anything "good" coming from that abuse. However, you can become the victor. It takes courage and help from others. Come and hear the real-life testimony of a "victim-turned victor".

If You Want Your Husband to Treat You Like a Queen.......

If you want to be QUEEN of the castle, you must first crown your husband KING! The S-word, "submission", isn't a bad word.
-Queen Roline
