Veterans Day at Rosener House

Join New Community Kids for a Veterans Day Community Engagement activity at Rosener House. Kids will help elderly clients do a craft.

Feeling Powerless in the Midst of Trauma and Tragedy

Feeling Powerless in the Midst of Trauma and Tragedy

  • New Community Church - Fireside Room (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Mass shootings happen in big cities and small towns, including one close to home in Gilroy. We’ve seen vast, deadly wildfires devastate whole communities. Some of us have experienced the sudden loss of a loved one, or unexpected news about our health. These traumas in our lives can leave us reeling with disbelief, fear, anger, and grief.

  • How do we respond as followers of Jesus?

  • What do we say to our children?

  • How do we manage our own fear?

  • How do we respond as a church community?

We'll take time to walk through social, emotional, and spiritual responses to trauma and tragedy in our lives, as individuals and families.

We do not know what to do, but our eyes are on you. 

- 2 Chronicles 20:12

In conjunction with our upcoming October sermon series on power, Drs. Kim and Tim Engelmann, who are members of our NCC community, will lead a seminar on this topic.

Dr. Kim Engelmann is a full-time staff chaplain at California Pacific Medical Center, Sutter Health in San Francisco. She is a certified Clinical Chaplain and Pastoral Counselor through the Spiritual Care Association. She also has been in pastoral ministry for many years serving both as a senior and associate pastor in multiple church settings. Kim loves to write and has authored many books and articles on the spiritual life. She has three grown children and resides with her husband Tim in San Mateo.

Dr. Tim Engelmann specializes in the integration of Christian faith and mental health. He was trained at Harvard Medical School as a Clinical Fellow in Psychology and holds a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from The Ferkauf Graduate School of Yeshiva University. Tim is the founder and president of the non-profit Christian Recovery and Renewal Center. Tim focuses on areas such as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, anxiety, depression, recovery, and marriage and family issues in his private practice at First Presbyterian Church of Burlingame, where he has practiced for over 20 years.
