Join us for interactive, discussion-based sessions as we continue this important conversation in the life of our church.

The Connection: Where Hearts Meet
6:15-7:30pm, C-102
October 17, 24; November 7, 14

All families at times face struggles and difficulties, but for families who adopt or foster children who have come from "hard places,” those struggles and difficulties are often greatly increased in intensity and complexity. This study is designed to encourage and equip parents with practical help based on Biblical truths and research based interventions.  While this study was developed for adoptive or foster care families, its information is beneficial for any parent, those considering adoption or foster care, or any individual who works with children and desires to understand trauma and healing strategies for the whole child.

This study will be co-facilitated by Grace and Matt Terhune and Jennifer and Gordon Thompson and will continue in the Spring Midweek semester.  Contact Jennifer Thompson at with any questions.
