Combat trauma is a serious concern in our country today. 

 

It not only affects the veterans, it can have a negative impact on families and communities. 

 

Combat trauma can manifest itself through issues like anger, anxiety, depression, social withdrawal, and most tragically, suicide. About 22 veterans commit suicide EVERY DAY in the United States. Symptoms are often linked to deep-rooted “soul wounds” related to unresolved grief, distrust of God/self/others, survivor’s guilt, unforgiveness, bitterness, and loss of identity.  

 

REBOOT Combat Recovery is a nonprofit organization that helps combat veterans and their families heal from the moral and spiritual wounds of war.  We accomplish this by facilitating a faith-based 12-week healing course in local communities. 

 

The course, which is not a support group, provides practical tools for service members and families dealing with the after-effects of combat. Participants learn skills that aid in their healing while helping to build community.  

 

We also encourage and welcome spouses and other affected family members to attend, since trauma impacts the entire family. 

 

The REBOOT course is veteran-led and is FREE to participants. 

 

Meetings are held weekly in a safe and private environment. 

 

A hot meal and childcare are provided, all with the purpose of removing barriers to families seeking help.  

 

The course starts with a shared meal from 6:00-6:30 pm, and the meeting is from 6:30-7:30 pm.

Community Bible Study Peoria Evening Class invites you to study "Red Sea to the Jordan River" (Exodus, Leviticus, and Numbers) for 2017-2018.

 

The Bible Study is for men, women and children of every denomination and every level of understanding.

 

This is a 30 week study that tells the story of how God delivered His chosen people, the Israelites, from Egyptian slavery and established them as a new nation. The books tell of a holy God's faithfulness to weak and sinful people. 

 

Biblical themes like doubt and faith, complaining and grace, crisis and intercession, and failure and repentance provide numerous opportunities for spiritual growth through this CBS study. All leaders in CBS are volunteers. 

 

The small registration fee (adults $35, children infant-teens $10) and weekly free-will offerings cover the cost of producing materials and annual gift to host church.

 

Participants grow in knowledge and their relationship with the Living God through individual study (answering questions and reading commentary on selected Bible passages), small group discussions (weekly sharing of answers and insights in small groups led by a trained leader), and effective teaching (lecture presented by the Teaching Director, a trained lay leader).

 

The class will meet every Thursday from September 7 to May 3.

The DVD seminar features nationally-respected grief experts and real-life stories of people as they work through their grief.

 

No matter the cause of your loved one's death, this is an opportunity to be around people who understand what you are feeling. You'll learn to recognize the symptoms of being stuck in grief but that you do not need to live as a slave to your grief. You'll learn valuable information about facing your "new normal" in life and renewing your hope for the future.
