September 24th, 12:00-1:00 pm—Anxiety
Anxiety is a normal, expected and common experience in life. As human beings, we worry about keeping ourselves and our loved ones safe, upcoming decisions we must make, our future security, and many other things. But in the era of constant news and information about potential threats to our safety and future security, many people are finding it more difficult to manage their anxiety in our complex world. Come learn some general tips to deal with anxiety and enjoy roundtable discussions with Dr. Nilima Nirmul-Gyuricsko, a member of GBPC with her husband Eric and their family. Nilima is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist with Chesapeake Psychological Associates who specializes in the individual treatment of adolescent and adult clients. She enjoys working with women’s issues, middle school and high school adjustment issues, identity issues and employs an eclectic mixture of therapeutic approaches in order to tailor her work to best suit her individual client’s needs.
October 22nd, 12:00-1:00 pm—Talking to Your Kids About Faith
One of the philosophies of Orange is that the church (yellow) and parents (red) are partners in helping our children know and love God. When put together, the red and yellow make orange. This workshop is designed to help equip parents and connect them with resources to feel comfortable doing their part to help develop and deepen their children’s faith. Director of Children’s Ministry Stacey Michalak, Director of Youth Ministry Andrew Marshall and Rev. Anita K. Herbert will be sharing insights they learned at D6, a family ministry discipleship conference they attended in September. Come learn strategies for having the most important conversations you will ever have with your child!
Lunches are $7 a person, and will be wraps or chicken salad croissants, pasta or potato salad, cookie, brownie or fruit, and a drink. Sign up for a box lunch from Tessa the Wednesday before the event: firstname.lastname@example.org
