Bethel Church Counseling hosted 2020TALK: Building Resilience & Finding Hope on Thursday, September 24 from 6:30-8 p.m. at Bethel Church.


No one saw this coming. It seems like we should have our feet under us by now but so many of us are struggling with grief of many kinds, uncertainty, and bouts of incredible stress. Our relationships have been impacted. For many of us, our emotional state and coping strategies are strained. But what if we can turn to real, solid help, build resilience and use this as a stepping stone into a HOPE-filled future.

3 uniquely gifted and qualified speakers will offer tools that are evidence-based to lower anxiety, increase mood and have a more hopeful outlook, offer help to parents, teachers, and caregivers and bring a spiritual perspective that offers hope.  This will be an informative in-person event at Bethel Church, Fargo with Livestream at and on Facebook on the Bethel Church Fargo page.

No need to register.

Childcare is not available.

If attending in person – masks are strongly encouraged until seated in the Worship Center. Designated seating in the Worship Center will provide social distancing.
