October 5 – Demystifying Mental Health in Gilbertsville

Falkner Swamp (2077 Swamp Pike, Gilbertsville) hosts “Demystifying Mental Health” with Pastor Zack Jackson. Zack is pastor of Community UCC in Reading, and adjunct professor of theology at Palmer Theological Seminary. Zack is passionate about deepening the conversation in faith communities between religion and science so we can be better equipped and informed.
Many of us live with mental health challenges. Our own, or those we love, live, and work with. It can be hard to see God working through these challenges, and yet, as Christians, we hope with patience those things we cannot see (Romans 8:25).

Our time with Pastor Zack will give us opportunity to ask questions and deepen our understanding of mental health challenges.
A brief outline:
9:30-9:45 – Gather in Fellowship Hall for snacks, coffee & name tags
9:45-10 – Move to sanctuary and get settled in
10-11:30 – Presentation intermingled with small group discussion

Spread the word! This is free and open to the community.
Registration is appreciated but not required by calling 610-323-4053.
