This resource is part of the Self-Care Outreach Collection.

True Rest, Joy, and Peace

Our campuses are desperate for self-care. This four-session series will invite your community—Christians and seekers alike—to explore their level of self-care (body, soul, relationships), and consider Jesus’ invitation for true rest, joy, and peace found in him.

Each study contains:

  • guided Scripture passage
  • reflection questions
  • life application
  • spiritual practices
  • self-care personal diagnostic

We pray that these studies may lead your community deeper together and deeper in Christ.
