Fear, Anger and Depression have increased because of the potential threat of sickness - even death, and the loss of wealth and income. We need something larger than self to assure us that a greater good and gain is going to result from all the bad. An assurance of a good that could come no other way but through bad is necessary if we are going to avoid controlling anxiety, anger, depression - even suicide, in this crisis. God is the giver of unfailing promises and His Word is the communicator of such assurance - convincing us that He is faithful.

THE TRUSTING GOD CHANGE GROUP

This 5-week intensive biblical change group led by Patty Brown MABC is tailored for those going through hardships and seeking biblical strength to persevere in doing what is right. This study is based on Jerry Bridges book and study guide: Trusting God - Even When Life Hurts

Patty will teach you not only key insights needed to find spiritual strength for current hardships, but how to prayerfully meditate on those insights so that they influence your attitudes and responses to the hardship. God has sustained and transformed many people who have come to counseling through the truths we will be meditating on together in this study.

Five Sunday evenings at 7pm - May 17 through June 14

Take a look at one of the main assignments you will master during this course: What Does It Really Mean to Trust God

*The SELF-CONTROL CHANGE Group (for women)

Addictive Behaviors are resurfacing and increasing due to a mixture of more seclusion, less structure, and greater stress. People are seeking to escape the stress, the fear, the anger, the conflict, and loss as a result of the coronavirus through pornography, sexual-deviancy, internet and social media, gaming , online shopping, movie binges, eating, and substance abuse. Addiction is bondage to the rule of a substance, activity, or state of mind, which then becomes the center of life. Our loss of control to pleasure can be regained by gaining a higher pleasure and new habits that come from having a new center or core. God promises this new heart that can see more deeply the dangers of addiction and experience more fully the pleasure coming tomorrow for those who choose what is best today. Come learn how to gain and develop this new propensity.

What the Coronavirus Has Revealed About Us & How to Cure It

A crisis is like a divine knife exposing us to our deepest needs. Maybe a month ago we thought we needed less traffic or less work to do, but this crisis has made our deeper needs more apparent. The Coronavirus has increased stressors and temptations - maybe like never in our life-time. When a generation is faced with the potential loss of health and wealth on such a global scale, it is like a knife that exposes our fundamental needs. These exposed needs we often either taken for granted or we do not even recognize.

As a result of the Coronavirus our best scientists are now working non-stop searching feverishly for a cure. Our social engineers in similar fashion seek to stabilize society and the economy. As biblical counselors, we too are diligently working to identify and address and provide solutions to the current personal and relational stressors and needs which the current crisis is revealing. We have identified four major needs, stressors, and temptations humanity is facing right now in greater measure: ANXIETY, CONFLICT, ADDICTIVE TEMPTATIONS, & CHILD-MANAGEMENT.


JOIN ONE OF WEEKLY HOPE & GUIDANCE GROUPS (click here to join)
To help you during this time, the Lowcountry Biblical Counseling Center's Executive Director, Tim Bryant, with the LCBCC Counselors, offers on Sunday evenings from 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm virtual hope and change groups. These change groups will begin with Tim Bryant giving a 20-30 minute presentation on applying biblical Hope & Wisdom to address the increased challenges that Covid-19 has brought. Following this, participants break out into one of four virtual change groups led by LCBCC counselors:

1) Trusting God during Covid-19 with Patty Brown (for women)

2) Pursuing Unity in Conflict during Covid-19 with Tim Bryant (for men and women)

3)Practicing Self-control during Covid-19 with Dr. Pam Moore (for women)

4) Victory over Temptation (for Men) with Caleb Kennedy and Steve Puleo. (for men)

You will receive personal encouragement and guidance in these groups.
