Hug Church
Finding Peace in Stressful Times

Hi Hug fam!

I’ve been hearing that our #Overwhelmed series has been helping people become aware of their codependency, stress, and anger. This past Sunday, we talked about anger and how God wants our anger because God wants all of us, not just the pretty and put together parts.

“God wants all of us and anger is part of us.”

At Hug, we do something called FLOW, experiential interactive exercises, to help us engage and practice what we learn. This week, we yelled our anger to God like David lamented in the Psalms. I know a lot of people felt their burdens lifted as they felt God heard them and received their cries.

This Sunday we have a special event! Karis Gibbons will be joining us live for a Q&A on anxiety. You may have seen her video that went viral on facebook!

Anxiety is something that is becoming more and more common in our fast-paced world. I’m looking forward to learning from Karis in our time and hope you will join us this weekend.

As always, we eat dinner together afterwards. Join us this Sunday at 5 PM!

Welcome Dinner

Food = Relationship

Relationship is something we value at Hug. Eating together was seen as one of the highest forms of relationship in the ancient world! (The pharisees were bothered the most when Jesus ate with the outsiders.)

That’s why we provide dinner every week after our services so that we can practice being in relationship with one another.

And here’s another opportunity for those of you who are new to Hug. We’re having our very first welcome dinner, a backyard casual get-to-know-each-other time at my house this Saturday. It’s a chance to meet other people who are new to Hug as well as our leaders. Please RSVP so we can get enough food!


Tuesdays with Eddie

Tuesday Talks
Last week we launched Tuesday Talks, where anyone can sign up for a half-hour phone call to talk about what’s on their heart — whether it’s a question about God, a desire to vent about something, or a need for prayer. I’m here to listen and care! I appreciated having the opportunity to hear what was on people’s minds and it helps me know better how to pray for all of you.

If you’re interested in future Tuesday Talks, sign up here
