Mental Health Awareness Month at GCC
For the month of March, the Youth Council has started a Psycho-educational series on mental health. Last week, we took the Enneagram Personality test, (which consists of 9 different personality types) that helps us understand our personality and the different perspectives we have. It also helps to know which personality we have so when situations arises, we can use the different coping strategies that work well with our personalities.
Last night, we came up with a list of healthy vs. unhealthy coping strategies for stress. We even acted out some scenarios about unhealthy coping strategies (which was a lot of fun to do)! 😀
The verses dedicated at the end of each Tuesday were read from:
1 Timothy 4:12-16:
12 Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity. 13 Until I come, devote yourself to the public reading of Scripture, to preaching and to teaching. 14 Do not neglect your gift, which was given you through prophecy when the body of elders laid their hands on you. 15 Be diligent in these matters; give yourself wholly to them, so that everyone may see your progress. 16 Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers.
2 Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. 4 Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.
5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; 6 in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.
Join us for Together Tuesdays at Neelsville Presbyterian Church from 7pm – 8pm.
For the glory of God alone.
