Changes that Heal

In this ground-breaking book, Dr. Cloud takes the reader step-by-step through the four basic tasks of becoming mature image bearers of God: Bonding to others, separating from others, sorting out good and bad in ourselves and others and becoming an adult. Dr. Cloud not only explains and describes each task, but he also identifies the problems that result when we fail to accomplish that task, and he shows us what changes to make in our lives in order to bring about healing.
Leaders: Janice Heath and Cathy Garcia

Disciple 1

Disciple 1 provides a foundational overview of the Bible. Beginning with Genesis and continuing through Revelation, group members will read approximately 80 percent of the Bible. The study gives the Old and New Testaments equal time, emphasizing the wholeness of the Bible as a revelation of God. Disciple draws upon the work of scholars, personal Bible reading and study of participants and dynamic group discussion to aid understanding of the Bible. This is a 24-week study, 12 in the fall and 12 in the spring.
Leaders: Janet Tyner and Ingrid Akers
6 p.m. on Wednesdays for 24 weeks (the fall session ends Dec. 12)


If you’ve lost a spouse, child, family member or friend, you’ve probably found there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel. This can be a confusing time when you feel isolated and have many questions about things you’ve never faced before. GriefShare groups meet weekly for 13 weeks to help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life. GriefShare is for those experiencing fresh grief as well as long-ago, perhaps unresolved grief. For more information, explore griefshare.org
