Barb and Thom Rainey started attending Fair Haven at the old church building on Hwy 135 before it moved to its current location. They have been blessed to watch Fair Haven grow and be part of God’s kingdom work. They have been very active in Small Groups for about 20 years, and facilitating a group for about 15 years. They realize, as our church keeps growing, how important it is to be part of a small group church family. Small Group has inspired them by the fellowship and support they get from one another.

Video Study: “Anxious for Nothing – Finding Calm in a Chaotic World” by Max Lucado

Do you feel weighted down with worry? Does the uncertainty and chaos of life keep you up at night? Are irrational fears your constant companion? Could you use some calm?

In this five-session video Bible study, bestselling author Max Lucado explores God’s treatment plan for anxiety found in Philippians 4:4–8. As you follow this prescription – celebrating God’s goodness, asking for his help, leaving your concerns with him, and meditation on good things – you will experience God’s peace. This is a peace that “transcends all understanding” and will help you reframe the way you look at your fears.

While anxiety is a part of life, it doesn’t have to dominate your life. 

Stop letting anxiety rule the day. Experience more joy, clarity, physical renewal, and contentment by the power of the Holy Spirit.
