New Women’s Group: “Slim Expectations” on Monday Nights, 8-9pm at the Pellissippi Campus starting Monday, July 15th, 2013.

Join us at fp Celebrate on Monday nights for this new Celebrate Group led by Linda Moore.

We will be starting a new Celebrate Group called “Slim Expectations.”  This group is for women who struggle with weight issues and food addictions.  The Group will focus on making healthy food choices, as well as overall well being.

Some of the books we will use are:

  • Breaking Free from Emotional Eating by Geneen Roth (She is the author of Women Food and God)
  • Breaking Free from Compulsive Overeating by Linda Mintle, PHD
  • Overcoming Overeating – How to Break the Diet/Binge Cycle and Live a Healthier, More Satisfying Life by Jane R. Hirschmann & Carol H. Munter (Authors of When Women Stop Hating Their Bodies”

We will discuss fad diets and why they work or don’t work.  We will work together to find the strength we need to face the challenges of having the willpower necessary to make healthy choices.  We will seek God’s help as well as support from each other as we work to reach our goals, one step at a time.

Celebrate on Monday nights starts at 6:00pm with great food, then a time of awesome worship and a challenging message from a variety of engaging speakers, such as our very own Chad Funk the Pastor of our fp Celebrate Ministry.

Following our corporate time together we have several Celebrate Groups for you to plug into to be ministered to and help you navigate your next steps toward growth and in your walk with God.

fp Celebrate is a place to connect, heal, and grow at Faith Promise Church.

fp Celebrate is a vital part of the Groups Ministry here at Faith Promise Church. As with all of our groups, we focus on creating environments where people Encounter God, Embrace Others, and Engage the World Around Us.

    Looking forward to sharing my journey with Faith Promise to help myself and others deal with this ever-growing problem…Food addiction and eating disorders.

  • Bridget Jones

    Is this an ongoing group, or time-limited? (i.e. 8-12 weeks) I would like to come to this!

  • Patsy Williams

    This is an ongoing group and we would love for you to attend. It begins next Monday.

  • Linda Moore

    Hi Bridget, I am sorry to just be getting back with you on this. This will not be a time-limited group. We are more into “supporting” each other and there will be new topics each week. We may decide to do a Bible Study based on the majority rule, but right now we are just concentrating on supporting each other and talking about our food hangups, whether it is overeating or food addictions, or whatever is brought out at the meetings.

  • Kara

    I’m interested in attending as well. Where in the building will the meetings be? Will there be signs or anything pointing that out once I get inside?-

  • Patsy Williams

    Hi Kara
    We are excited you will be attending Slim Expectations. You will enter the building at Entrance 1; look to your right and you will see sign in area; after signing in go up the stairs; bear to your right; and go to room 217 on your right. If you will text me 865-919-4769 when you get to the church, I will meet you at the check-in area and walk you to the room.

    Ok, thank you so much! I will let you know when I get there 🙂
