Monday/Tuesday Seminar Options
You will choose one.
Emotionally Healthy Relationships:
Relationships can be great. Until they're not. We've all been there in both the good and the bad. So how do relationships interact with our faith experience, and what does God have in mind for them? Whether you find yourself curious about best practices, wanting to go deeper with others, or needing to navigate drama and potential toxicity, this seminar will help you understand, identify, and build emotionally healthy relationships through a faith-based lens.
Good Enough? Freedom from Perfectionism:
Do you feel like you're constantly striving to get it just right and be perfect, but never actually getting there? What does God have to say about our desire for perfection? This seminar will help process the alluring lies of perfectionism and, instead, step into God's freedom, goodness and grace.
Thursday/Friday Seminar Options
You will choose one.
"Conflict" feels like a bad word, and engaging in relational conflict can feel daunting or downright unthinkable. But what is God's invitation to us as His people? This seminar will examine healthy conflict amongst God's people, and work through some practical skills to begin restoring healthy relationships.
Knowing God in Unknown Times:
Are you overwhelmed by tough choices and painful realities? Life is full of unknowns, and we can feel alone in making our way through it. Being unsure of our next steps, we're afraid of hurting someone or making our lives harder. We feel the constant tension of fight, flight, or freeze. In the midst of unknowns, this seminar will reorient us towards God--who we know is infinitely able, trustworthy, good and near to us.
