Mental Health and Your Student workshop

12-1 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 26 (Zoom)

Life can be hard. We want to help. Perhaps you or your student have questions related to mental health. Perhaps you weren’t even sure you had questions, but you know that you need help. This 1-hour workshop is an introduction to mental health training and will help you navigate your next step. Sign up for one workshop in person or on Zoom.

Enriching Your Marriage class

6:15-7:30 p.m. Wednesdays

Learn how to fight better and end your arguments with your partner feeling closer, more loved, and better understood. With the help of their marriage coach Dr. Christopher Edmonston, Penn and Kim Holderness break down their biggest (and in some cases, funniest) fights.

Making Sense of the Bible class

The study begins with foundational questions such as, How and when was the Bible written? Who decided which books made it in and why? How literally must we read it? Is the Bible ever wrong? Includes videos with Adam Hamilton and group discussion.
