Life Enrichment

This post is also available in: Spanish

The Life Enrichment program is designed to help you live every day of your life with purpose and wholeness and to bring about complete healing and restoration in your broken places.

Life Enrichment is an initiative of Mt. Zion Ministries. Its mission is to train people in the Christian walk by teaching them to overcome adversity and temptation, ultimately allowing them to mature in Christ. Due to our human nature and experiences in life, we often bear obstacles that stand in the way of us becoming all that God has planned for us. Life Enrichment teaches that we can be delivered from bondages by the redemptive power of God and overtake and recover all that God has intended for us. Life Enrichment provides a place of refuge for the hurting and offers hope for any situation through anointed words of encouragement. We teach the importance of being strong in the Lord and the power of His might, in order to stand against anything (Ephesians 6:10-11). Our goal is for people to become overcomers and learn to take an active part in the local church body, where they will continue to receive support and further growth.

The heartbeat of our Life Enrichment program is founded on the promises of Isaiah 61:
• God will heal the broken-hearted
• God will liberate those in captivity and set free those who are bound
• Comfort all who mourn
• Rebuild, repair, and raise up brokenness
• Take away shame and give honor
• Take away confusion and give joy

Each 10-week session provides a small group setting where individuals can share with others having similar needs. Trained leaders oversee each group to assure that the work of the vision is accomplished. There is no charge; however, an offering will be taken.

UPCOMING SESSION (JANUARY 8-MARCH 14):

Sunday (5:00 PM – 6:00 PM)
Location: Mt. Zion Church
Childcare is provided!

Life Controlling Emotions in Spanish
Location: Mt. Zion Church (Room 608-A)
Instructor: Rudy Aguilar Sr.
Class Description: This group discusses how emotions affect and control our lives and explores ways to conquer them. A crisis may cause our emotions to become temporarily unbalanced; however, when a crisis is dealt with, our emotions should fall back into balance. When this does not happen, every action or reaction is a result of an emotion out of control. This group supports and teaches individuals how to regain balance and stability of mind.

Sunday (6:00 PM – 7:00 PM)
Location: Mt. Zion Church
Childcare is provided!

Anger Resolution
Location: Mt. Zion Church (Room 608-A)
Instructor: Rich Nadon & David Hayward
Class Description: The Anger class teaches that when an emotion is not dealt with, it can become anger. Anger reveals the condition of the heart. Anger usually stems from either hurt, frustration, or fear. Many people deny their anger and its influence on their actions-they believe people with anger explode. Many are very subtle at controlling anger, but others catch a glimpse of it from time to time. Anger Resolution helps identify the source of anger and teaches individuals how to deal with the root of it in their heart.

Marriage Class (closed after 1/15; both spouses must attend)
Location: Mt. Zion Church (Room 608-B)
Instructors: Michael & Melanie Sanchez
Class Description: This class is for married couples only. You must be married and you must attend as a couple. It is based on the idea that our marriage should be a reflection of the relationship that Christ has with the church. Based on the first chapter of Ephesians, it outlines the marriage relationship as God intended it to be. In our relationship with God we make mistakes; the relationship would be over if God had not made a way for us to get back into right standing with Him. Our marriage is the same way. We need a redemption plan, a way to resolve our problems with one another and return to our love relationship. What is a redemption plan and how do I implement one in my marriage? This is a class for any couple who wants to enrich their marriage and allow their relationship to be an example of God’s intention for marriage.

Monday (7:30 PM – 8:30 PM)
Location: The District
Childcare is not provided!

Healing for Women (closed after 1/16)
Location: The District (Green Room)
Instructor: Nuha Hayward/Michelle Strange
Class Description: Women place a lot of importance on relationships. When you are in a relationship, there is a risk involved. You may be hurt. Once you are hurt in a relationship, the pain and devastation that you feel can keep you from being able to trust. You may begin to deal with people out of your brokenness. You may have difficulty connecting with people and maybe even with God. There is hope for you because healing can be found in God. Whether you have experienced adultery, betrayal of a friend, abuse from a parent or spouse, disappointment from God, or whatever hurt may be in your heart, God can heal the broken places and bind up the wounds.

Substance Abuse (Ages 16-25)
Location: The District (Room 5)
Instructors: Gabriel Carnell/Ariel Obando/Abby Barry
Substance Abuse (Ages 18+)
Location: The District (Room 1)
Instructor: John Curtis & Monika Downey
Class Description: The Substance Abuse group emphasizes that drug and/or alcohol addiction is a curable disease. It presents realistic means for taking responsibility for the addiction and behavior that results from it, as well as practical strategies for coping with problems or pressures that motivate abuse of the substance. The group encourages you to discover the reasons for turning to the substance and alternative courses of action.

Tuesday (7:30 PM – 8:30 PM)
Location: The District
Childcare is not provided!

Boundaries in Relationships
Location: The District (Room 5)
Instructor: Sarah Bury, Rosiland Savage
Class Description: Boundaries must be set to enable us to see ourselves as individuals responsible for our own lives. This individual responsibility should not be given to anyone else. Likewise, boundaries are needed to prevent us from taking the responsibility for the needs of those we are not responsible for. Taking responsibility for someone else can allow them to remain immature and irresponsible. This group will equip you to set those boundary lines and will promote healthy growth in your relationships.

Life Controlling Emotions

Class Description: This group discusses how emotions affect and control our lives and explores ways to conquer them. A crisis may cause our emotions to become temporarily unbalanced; however, when a crisis is dealt with, our emotions should fall back into balance.

Man to Man
Location: The District (Room 5)
Instructor: Gabriel Carnell
Class Description: When men try to measure their success as a man, they often compare themselves to other men or to some criteria that they feel society has set as a measuring rod. The real measure of your success as a man, when based on the principles of God, is not about other men. It is about your uniqueness in God, your purpose, and your responsibilities based on the relationships that you have chosen. This class presents the principles of being a successful man of God. It offers the opportunity to share with other men and to learn the place other men have in your personal growth.
