‘Preparing for the Resurrection’ workshop @ First Christian Church
Mar 27 @ 10:00 am – 3:00 pm

SHERIDAN — First Christian Church and the Wyoming Association of Churches will host a biblically-grounded workshop, “Preparing for Resurrection,” on March 27.

The workshop, running from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., will be led by author and coach Rev. Rebekah Simon-Peter.

The workshop will take a deep look at how participants can prepare for resurrection by re-writing and renewing their own life stories. Participants will look at the memories, relationships and feelings that are disempowering them instead of empowering them. They’ll turn negative self-talk to positive renewal and action. They’ll also take a look at how they can let go of the attitudes and beliefs that are holding their spirits down, and celebrate spiritual release.

The workshop is free, but advanced registration is recommended.

For additional information or to register call First Christian Church at 674-6795.
