A men’s group that focuses on the Biblical application of twelve steps that will guide us through the process of identifying the root cause(s) of our destructive behavior(s). Specific topics include:
surrender to Jesus Christ
A Detailed self-examination in order to understand the root cause(s) of our destructive behavior(s), confession, repentance, building strong character, making amends, and maintaining progress through prayer, Biblical meditation, and ministry. The primary goal and objective of this workshop is to stop the cycle of destructive behaviors by becoming the man of God that we were intended to be.
The Overcoming Destructive Behaviors Men’s Group is a 14 week workshop that meets one night per week. Meetings are conducted face to face and/or by Gotomymeeting/Skype in order to provide flexibility. Work outside of the weekly meetings is required to prepare for each meeting, so additional time must be set aside in order to do the work. This work involves reading, answering questions, and writing down your thoughts as you read through each step.

If you are unable to physically drive to the office, we use a program-GoToMyMeeting which enables you to dial in on your computer and join the group. We will be able to see you and you can see us. This will be especially helpful when bad weather hits our area or if there are babyitting issues, etc. If you miss a session, call Carol for a brief overview of material.

Women-"Boundaries"-“Physical boundaries help us determine who may touch us and under what circumstances -- Mental boundaries give us the freedom to have our own thoughts and opinions -- Emotional boundaries help us to deal with our own emotions and disengage from the harmful, manipulative emotions of others -- Spiritual boundaries help us to distinguish God's will from our own and give us renewed awe for our Creator -- Often, Christians focus so much on being loving and unselfish that they forget their own limits and limitations. When confronted with their lack of boundaries, they ask:
Can I set limits and still be a loving person?
What are legitimate boundaries?
What if someone is upset or hurt by my boundaries?
How do I answer someone who wants my time, love, energy, or money?
Aren't boundaries selfish?
Why do I feel guilty or afraid when I consider setting boundaries?
Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend offer biblically-based answers to these and other tough questions, showing us how to set healthy boundaries with our parents, spouses, children, friends, co-workers, and even ourselves.”

STRESS MANAGEMENT AND ANXIETY FREE LIVING
This workshop focuses on understanding stress and anxiety and creating successful strategies for dealing with difficult issues and emotions. Life circumstances can be very difficult and in order to process these hard times succesfully we need to understand what is a the root of our stress and anxiety. For example, it is important to understand that there are difficult people in the world and there are people who create stress in our lives. We need to have the tools to be able to work with these people and through these circumstances so that we are able to have the peace of the Holy Spirit.
The workshop will be 12 weeks, meeting one night a week. In order to provide flexibility, attendance can be face-to-face, Skype, or by telephone.
