This is a hands-on, do-it-yourself workshop in which you
will take home something each week that you made.
The projects will vary from week to week. During the
course of five nights, we will be making wood crafts,
yarn crafts, and even a healthy salad!
Note: Adults only, limited to 30 people.
led by Pastor John
In this class, subtitled “Models of Faith in a Complex
World,” Pastor John will explore the lives of Christian men and women who have inspired and shaped him. From Augustine of Hippo in the 4th century to Nelson Mandela in the 20th century, we will explore stories of Christians whose faith helped them navigate difficult questions in complicated times.
facilitated by Pastor Bonny
After the funeral, when the cards and flowers have stopped,
most of the people around you return to their normal lives.
But your grief continues, and you feel alone. If you have
experienced grief from the loss of a family member or close
friend, we hope this group will be an “oasis” on your long
journey through grief, and a safe place to share with others.
facilitated by Denise Tamminga
Each week this class will include a panel of married couples who will lead us in honest discussion about marriage. Topics will include love styles, handling high stress seasons, understanding the impact of your childhood on your marriage, communication and conflict resolution,
and how to build a strong spiritual foundation.
led by Pastor Fernando
El matrimonio es maravilloso, complicado, realizador,
estresante, excitante y cien cosas más... y a veces todo a la vez. Hay momentos de felicidad intensa, así como momentos de terrible frustración. La idea de “Crecer Jun-
tos”, es para explorar cómo renovar nuestro matrimonio, en si, es entender por qué mi pareja se comporta así, y
como podemos mejorar en nuestra relación.
led by Jeff Schwieger, Psychologist
This class is designed for anyone who is personally struggling with depression or anxiety and for anyone who has a friend or family member dealing with either of these
issues. Jeff will share his personal experience with depression and anxiety, help us understand the nature of depression and anxiety, and help us discover responses,
tools and resources that are helpful and not so helpful in
dealing with depression and anxiety.
Our 7th and 8th graders will also dive in to the “Rebuild :
Revive : Renew” theme, as they explore the temple as the
place where God meets humankind, where heaven and
earth are joined together. The lessons will focus on the Gar-
den of Eden, Noah and the Ark, the rebuilding of the OT
Temple, Jesus as the new temple, and the New Jerusalem.
Our high school students (9th-12th) will also dive in to the
“Rebuild : Revive : Renew” theme, but at a deeper level.
They will explore God’s relentless determination to create a
place where God will commune with people — from a gar-
den to a temple to God’s Son to the new Heaven and Earth.
In the end, we will live in God’s presence for eternity.
Children love Summer Family Nights! This year our theme is
“Rebuild : Revive : Renew.” We will explore the good news
of God’s big plan to rebuild this broken world and restore us
to life in God’s presence.
