Grief Support Group
Ginny Pedrotti and Pastor Darwin Ng | Reed Hall 247
Grieving the loss of a loved one, a dream, physical abilities, and financial resources are just a few ways we experience loss. The PazNaz Grief Support Group can provide a safe space with support, care, and teaching as you journey through grief.


Group Spiritual Direction
Led by Dr. Brad Strawn | Reed Hall, Room 249
Group Spiritual Direction is a practice of listening to God, through silent prayer, on behalf of one another, for the enrichment of one another’s relationship with God. Members take turns sharing with the group something from their life that God has placed on their hearts. Then the group, in silence, listens to God on their behalf. Finally, members of the group share what God has revealed to them. You don’t need previous experience with this practice to participate. All you need is a willing heart to care for your own and others’ relationships with God, a willingness to listen for God’s leading, and an openness to God and one another. Note: this is not a typical intercessory prayer group where requests are shared and individual audible prayers are offered up. Pastor Brad Strawn will provide instructions for the practice.


Restoring Community
Led by Roger Schrage | Meguiar Hall, Room 134
This discussion group will focus on restoring community. By responding to questions raised at the last joint Sunday School gathering. To provide sufficient time for all to share on several questions, the session will begin during the Common Table dinner time and continue through the class time. Please plan to join the group in Meguiar Hall, Room 134 (downstairs from Gilmore Hall) immediately after picking up your meal from the serving line.  Come prepared to share, listen, and connect.


Voices of Faith: Same Gospel, Different Views
Led by Walker Railey | Reed Hall, Room 248
Each week we will study two popular authors with conflicting stances on today’s issues. The class will show how large the “tent” is within which Christians gather.


Women’s Wednesday Experience
Living Victoriously in Difficult Times
Led by Joan Watkins & Cathy Cota | Gilmore Hall, South
Through the stories of many who persevered through times of testing, you’ll discover how to find joy even when life seems unfair. You’ll learn how to handle loss while glorifying God in the midst of your pain. And you’ll find the peace that comes from trusting in the One whose strength is made perfect in your weakness.


PazNaz Kids: CARAVAN
Led by Pastor Jasmine Brenneman | The Cave (Lower Sanctuary 102)
CARAVAN is a program for children in grades 1-5. Activities for younger children will be available during this time, but they are not a part of the CARAVAN program. The purpose of CARAVAN is to help elementary-age children grow mentally, physically, spiritually, and socially. CARAVAN is a time for children to learn how they can be the kind of people God wants them to be in all areas of their lives.
The cost is $30 per family for January-June. Fees go toward the sash, scouting-type badges, and materials for the various activities we will be exploring during the year. Some of our themes this year are music, camping, puppeteering, and much more.
