this week, we are introducing the idea of anxiety. what is it? should I be anxious as a Christian? how does it affect my life? come learn with us at MDWK, Wednesdays at 6PM!

miss a MDWK? watch this recap to catch up on what you missed!

 

WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS: ANXIETY&WORRY

WEEK ONE: What is anxiety?

WHAT IS ANXIETY?

-Anxiety and stress aren't exactly the same!

Stress is how your body deals with experiences and emotions, and anxiety is how your mind processes/thinks through/mentally deals with experiences and emotions.

IS IT OKAY THAT I FEEL ANXIOUS? 

Yes&No.
We all feel anxious and worried, because we all live in a broken world. You are NOT A BAD PERSON because you feel anxious. However, constantly living in a state of anxiety is not a good thing. It doesn't help us to live the life that God wants us to experience. 

HOW TO I COMBAT AND GET OVER ANXIETY?

Our first step to combat anxiety is to acknowledge and name our emotions when we experience them. We will talk more about other ways to combat anxiety in the coming weeks!

 

Your weekly challenge this week is: 

When you feel anxious or worried, 

name OUT LOUD "Hey. I'm feeling anxious about _______."

Physically naming something is a good way to get a handle on your emotional state.

WHO WE ARE

Motion Student Ministry looks to move students towards Jesus, each other, and the world around us. We move towards Jesus in relationship. We move towards others in community and friendship. And we move toward the world around us with tangible love and the message of the Kingdom.

We are a place where anyone can belong. We believe and live out Acts 17:25 - it's only in God that we fully live, move, and have our being.

WHAT WE DO

MIDWEEK | WEDNESDAYS 6:00PM-7:30PM

Midweek is a time where all students from 5-12th grade gather to hang out, and learn together how to experience the work of God in our own realities. We look to form friendships, have real-lifee discussions, and challenge our views of the world. Meet us in the Student Center at Friedens Church!

HIGH SCHOOL SUNDAYS | SUNDAYS 9:25AM-10:15AM

On Sundays, if you're in grades 9-12, come down to the Student Center! Grab coffee, hang out, and engage with the Bible in a way that points to who Jesus is and how we can be more like Him. Middle schoolers will have some take-home material to be done with family as they continue to pursue God together.

Grab a calendar from the parent resources section below for a listing of all events this semester!

COMMUNITY FOCUS

Every couple months, we take time and look for ways to serve and love the community around us. In January, we will be looking to create some simple cards to give to different local nursing homes and care facilities. With little to limited visitation during COVID, a lot of residents are experiencing loneliness and isolation. These cards will be a little way we can let them know people are thinking of them and praying for them.
