    Children who participate in the workshop will learn about God’s desire for them to be safe from all types of violence, maltreatment, and abuse. Participants will be taught how to identify unsafe people and situations, and they will have the opportunity to practice responding in a safe way by asking for God’s help and confiding in trusted adults.

    A parent is required to attend so that he/she can continue to reinforce the concepts at home.

Care
  • GRIEF SHARE: November 4

    Whether it is the first, second or even third holiday after your loved one's death, you are going to be facing some tough emotions in the coming days. And due to the nature of Thanksgiving and Christmas - with their focus on family, yearly traditions, expectations, social events and "cheer" - those emotions can blindside you.

    You can lesson the emotional impact by knowing what to expect and by being prepared.

    Surviving the Holidays is here to help.
