Spring 2019 classes

Classes begin in January. Please use the button below to register for a class.


If you have lost a loved one in the last year, these groups are an encouraging community for those on the road of grief. While no one experiences grief in the same way, there is great insight in connecting with others on the same path. Using readings and discussion, we will have space to share and learn together.

Wednesday night group begins Jan. 10, 2019
6:00 - 7:00 p.m.

Thursday night group begins Jan. 11, 2019
12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m.


Navigating divorce and life after can be so challenging, and this community of friendships includes great encouragement and tools for life. Each session, led by Monica Harbarger and Becca Paul with United Counseling Services, includes a video presentation and a group discussion on topics including healing, finances, children and forgiveness.

Begins Jan. 9, 2019
6:00 - 7:30 p.m.


Are you looking for a job? Are you discerning a job transition? If you want to explore how to find the job that fits you, how to get that job interview, and how to be successful in that interview, please join us for a three session series led by Yancey Trucks.

Session 1: How do I find a job opening?
Session 2: How do I write my resume to show I am a good match for the job opening?
Session 3: How do I prepare for and interview to show that I am a good match for the job opening?
