Summer Workshop Registration

Created for Connection
Are you looking to enrich a healthy relationship, revitalize a tired one, or rescue one gone awry? Do you yearn to grow closer to God and to further incorporate Him and His teachings into your marriage? We all want a lifetime of love, support, and faith, and sometimes need a little help. The curriculum is based on Dr. Sue Johnson’s book, Created for Connection, the “Hold Me Tight” Guide for Christian Couples.


Marriage Principles
Learn new skills for deepening intimacy, managing conflicts, and enhancing your sense of shared meaning as a married couple. The curriculum is based on many of the principles found in the work of Dr. John Gottman.


Blending God’s Way
Blending God’s Way provides a support structure for blended families, and focuses on family system dynamics, marriage issues, and child training.


Support Groups

Depression and Anxiety
Living with a chronic illness like depression, bi-polar, or anxiety can feel overwhelming. Although you cannot control the fact that you may have a clinical mental illness, you can seek a support system for yourself.


DivorceCare is a 13-week class featuring videotaped seminar sessions with nationally recognized experts on divorce and recovery topics. Seminar topics include depression, loneliness, financial survival, anger, forgiveness, reconciliation, spiritual growth and more.


DivorceCare for Kids is designed to help children ages 5-12 cope with the losses they are feeling. This ministry parallels the adult DivorceCare group. The same subjects are discussed but on a child’s level.


Enduring Love
While men who struggle with sex addiction, pornography, and past infidelity face many serious challenges in their effort to find healing, their spouses and partners also struggle. Enduring love provides a support system for those spouses who are dealing with the consequences of betrayal and are seeking recovery. To register, please contact Emily Duggan at 816.554.0944 or register online. All correspondence is confidential.


GriefShare is a friendly, caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences. You don’t have to go through the grieving process alone. GriefShare seminars and support groups are led by people who understand what you are going through and want to help. You’ll gain access to valuable GriefShare resources to help you recover from your loss and look forward to rebuilding your life.

Living Free

This ministry provides parents an opportunity to receive support, encouragement, and hope through the Word of God and the sharing of experiences in raising children who have special needs.

Personal Development

This support group is structured around John Townsend and Henry Cloud’s bestselling book Boundaries. The classes offer guidelines on how to recognize and establish healthy boundaries, while providing assistance on how to deal with such issues as disappointing others, saying no, and overcoming fear and guilt.


Freedom in Christ
