September 24 – The Journey Through Grief, Change and Loss

We have all experienced the challenges that come through grief, change (even good change) and loss. Our panel of workshop leaders will discuss their own stories and what they’ve learned as they’ve navigated through life’s most difficult hurdles: divorce, pregnancy loss, job loss, loss of reputation, suicide of a loved one, health issues, and more. You aren’t alone and we want to resource you with comfort and with practical ways to journey through grief, change and loss in the healthiest way possible.


October 22 – The Journey to Freedom from Codepedency

Led by Steve and Debby Temmer, this workshop will equip you to break free from codependency in your key relationships. This will be a helpful resource to you in all of your relationships, but particularly geared for those most important ones like marriage, family, and closest friends. Freedom is possible and we will offer you insight and tools to live better in relationships and enjoy your life more.

April 23 – Live to Be Missed!

To love others well will bear fruit in their lives as God uses YOUR LIFE to “influence them forever!” You may never know (in this life) how God has used your life to impact another’s life. GO FOR IT! Leave the results to Him (as well as the glory). Our CHARACTER has a profound impact upon our INFLUENCE. DO NOT UNDERESTIMATE THIS IMPACT!

As a leader, you will make one of these two choices throughout your life: To either impress people for the moment or be an influencer for Christ that will last for eternity! The choice is yours!


Breaking Free Class

Would you like to understand how your past has impacted your present life and learn how to move forward and thrive? Do you want to break free from negative coping patterns that have been creating problems in your daily life? how about improving understanding of yourself, others in the dynamics that occur in relationships? If you said “yes” to any of these questions, then this class is for you!

In this class you’ll learn that codependency is a disease of immaturity, rendering a person unable to experience appropriate levels of self-esteem, unable to set boundaries with other people, unable to own their own reality, unable to take care of their own needs and wants appropriately, and unable to express their own reality moderately and it be appropriate age levels.

The quality of your recovery is proportional to the quality of your surrender.

Sharing his own story of heartache, pastor and NYT bestselling author Jentezen Franklin shows that the walls we build around our hearts to block out pain also block out hope, healing, and love.

 “This could be the most powerful book you read. It will strengthen your faith and renew your hope that you can love again.” – CRAIG GROESCHEL, senior pastor, Life Church; bestselling author

Here he gives you the tools you need to tear down those walls, work through your wounds, and find the strength and courage to love like you’ve never been hurt.

“Christian spirituality,” writes Benner, “involves a transformation of the self that occurs only when God and self are both deeply known.” The self is not God, but it is the place where you meet God. Genuine self-knowledge revitalizes your spiritual life and opens the door to becoming who God has created you to be.

Rest assured, you need not try to be someone you are not.
