Workshop starting Tuesday

GREENVILLE – If you wrestle with, worry, anxiety, and fear you are not alone. Worry, anxiety, fear, and panic are escalating levels of response to an approaching unpleasant situation.

According to researchers a relatively large percentage of the population is afflicted with troubles in which these emotions play a central role. Worry and anxiety tend to deal with the future: typically ill-defined or even unknown potential problems. Fear and panic are considered to be responses to well-defined, more immediate threats. The situation causing discomfort could be real or imagined.

Beginning on Tuesday, the biblical counseling ministry of Bible Fellowship Church is offering an eight-week workshop entitled When I am Afraid. The study will concern overcoming the problems of worry, anxiety, and fear from a biblical perspective.

The workshop will be held at the YMCA in Greenville from 7 – 8:30 p.m.every Tuesday night. The registration fee is $10 and includes the workbook and all materials. Call the church office at 937-547-1952 for more information or register online at

Pastor Cobb, the teaching pastor of Bible Fellowship, said, “We do not claim to be experts but we have seen good results helping people deal with these kinds of problems. We want to offer the community help from a biblical perspective.”
