Resilience Film Viewing
Wednesday , January 16, 2019 6:00pm – 8:00pm | McAdams Hall
RESILIENCE: THE BIOLOGY OF STRESS & THE SCIENCE OF HOPE is a film highlighting the effects of toxic stress and the importance of building resilience. Come learn how stress can affect children’s developing brains but how supportive adult caregivers can buffer those deleterious effects. Come explore how we as Christ’s ambassadors can build resilience in our church and community. We will have dinner at 6:00pm then start the movie around 6:45 pm. If you would like to come to dinner RSVP with Janet at Janet@stpaulchurchky.org .
