Passover Seder Dinner
Join us for a Passover Celebration! Jesus' Last Supper with His disciples was a Passover Seder, a meal where the Jewish people remember and celebrate how God rescued them from slavery during the Exodus.

Understanding the Passover brings even greater meaning and joy to what Jesus did for us at Easter.

There are six major risk factors when dealing with children from hard places.
- Difficult or Stressful Pregnancy
- Difficult Birth
- Premature (nurtured by hospital staff before brought home)
All of these risk factors come into play when attachment is being formed between the parent and a child. During this simulcast you will receive tools to equip your family. Healthy and vibrant families need proper innovative tools to help them in parenting and connecting with their children. Not only is this designed for adoptive and foster families… it is also designed for families that have experienced any of the top six risk factors.

Marriage Enrichment Weekend
Marriage Enrichment is a positive, personal experience for couples to learn a technique of loving communication that can be used for the rest of their lives. It is a time when a couple can be alone together, free from distractions, to share their hopes, joys, fears and frustrations. The weekend allows a couple to discover the personal strengths in their relationship that will enable them to look to the future with courage. It is a common sense approach that helps couples see where their relationship could be through communication. Marriage Enrichment is not a retreat, marriage counselling, or sensitivity course.
