Beats & Battles
2020 was a very difficult year, for many, 2021 has not brought relief. This page is designed to complement our current 6-week series “Beats & Battles”. On this page you will find many resources to help navigate the difficulties of life.

Counseling

Each one of us faces trials in our lives that stem from depression, anxiety, loneliness, anger, disappointment, and grief. Often, it feels like we’re alone in our fight to overcome those trials. If you find yourself facing any of these battles, we are here to help. We have licensed professionals as well as our pastoral staff standing by.

Professional

We have partnered with local professional counselors to provide 1 free hour of general counsel. This is not intended for treatment or for those that are suicidal. This hour is designed to address the challenges discussed during the weekend message.

Pastoral

Many times, our battles have a spiritual component to them. Knowing where to look for relief can be overwhelming. Our trained pastoral staff would love to walk with you during this difficult period.

Celebrate Recovery

If you want freedom from life’s hurts, hang-ups and habits we encourage you to check out Celebrate Recovery at the Real Life Church. This ministry seeks to celebrate God’s healing and redemptive power in our lives through the Eight Recovery Principles Celebrate Recovery is based on.

Resources

You might not need to seek professional help or speak with a pastor, but would still like resources addressing the topics discussed during this six-week series. You might also be looking for resources to pass along to a loved one. In either case, you are in the right place. Below you will find several resources that speak to the difficulties of life that many of us face. These resources are book recommendations, video-based series, and other resources to support and encourage you. Many are free but some do have a small cost associated with them.

Fear and Faith
Failure, rejection, sickness, losing a loved one, being alone—the fears we carry are many and heavy. Fear can be a tyrant, a bully we can’t hide from. It can paralyze our spirit, damage our relationships, and hinder our faith. When we’re struck with fear, where do we turn? Can God really be trusted? In five heartfelt sessions based on her book, Fear and Faith: Finding the Peace Your Heart Craves, speaker and author Trillia Newbell invites women to explore their fears and how those fears impact their relationships, self-esteem, peace of mind, and walk with God. Watch Now.

How to Overcome Worry
Most women struggle with worrying too much. What can we do to be less worrisome, anxious and fearful? Elyse Fitzpatrick, speaker and author of “Women Helping Women,” talks about why women struggle with worry and explains how women can overcome their fear, worry and anxiety. Watch Now.

Look at the Book: Don’t Be Anxious
This three-part series of labs takes on anxiety by studying Matthew 6:24–27. If the Bible is going to effectively speak to our anxious hearts, we need to learn how to read it well. In this lab, John Piper lays out the arguments and gives three short lessons for our daily Bible reading. Watch Now.

Goliath Must Fall
It’s likely you have a giant in your life. It’s holding you captive, intimidating you with its taunts, and stealing your joy. Adversaries such as fear, anger, addiction, and others can stake a claim and, before you know it, gain a foothold in your heart. How do you live as if these giants are dead and silenced once and for all? In this six-session video Bible study, Louie Giglio examines the David and Goliath story to show you how: by focusing on the size of our God, not the height of your giants. As they go down, you gain freedom to walk in the victory Christ already won over the enemies that rob you of God’s best for your life. Watch Now.
