     “Blessed are they that mourn, for they shall be comforted.”  Matthew 5:4 KJV

    Are you suffering from unresolved grief due to major life losses that were something other than the death of a loved one? [For example, loss of childhood,  innocence, self-image, hope, a major career; loss of limbs or functions; estrangements, etc.]  We often choose to ignore many of these losses, and we can get stuck.  There are many books and programs that focus on recovering from “loss through death.”  But, loss of relationship is only one of twelve major types of losses. What does the process look like when you deliberately choose to mourn any of the other losses?  Join us for this in-depth study and process of how to mourn our losses and resolve our griefs and sorrows. This class is for women only at this time but please contact Pat Farnand if you are a male interested in a future class. Registration will be open soon for this class. Questions? Contact

    Pat Farnand at patfarnand@yahoo.com for further information.

    In a culture that encourages us to live as far above our means as possible, how we manage our personal finances can often be a source of worry, guilt, or confusion. God’s desire for us is simple, but it usually stretches our faith. Living by God’s plan won’t necessarily make you rich, but will lead you to a fulfilling, peace filled journey with God that money can’t buy. He wants us to be wise managers of all he has entrusted to us and generous givers who give in response to his great love.

    We offer courses and other resources to help our church community manage their personal finances in such a way that puts God first, and that brings glory to Him as our provider including the following:
