What stresses you out during the Christmas season?
What turns the celebration of Christ into an emotional meltdown?
Maybe it is schedules, budgets and/or toxic interpersonal situations?
The good news is that there tools, principles and wisdom to rise above these situations. When we approach stress with a “victim’s mentality” we are vulnerable to biological, mental and relational viruses. However, when we approach stress as a challenge to overcome, we enter with the health of a Jesus-disciple.
Join us for our annual holiday preaching series at LifePointe called, MERRY STRESSMAS, DON’T LET THE GRINCH STEAL CHRISTMAS. Discover with us how to reach the other side of the holidays being healthy, happy and holy!
