WNH Adult Classes Fall 2019

 

Grief Share

Facilitator: Kim Nielsen and Marie Roach, Room 303

Grief Share is a special seminar and support group for people grieving the loss of someone close. This group will meet during WNH and through November 27. Be with people who understand what you are experiencing and want to offer you comfort and encouragement. Each session consists of a video with insights, personal stories, and dramatic reenactments about the grief process, discussion, and sharing experiences, all of which help you organize and clarify your thoughts on what is happening to you and allow others to understand how they can help you along your grief journey. (Portions copied and/or paraphrased from Grief Share promotional materials.)

 

Parenting with Love and Logic

Facilitators: COBYS presenter, Room 305

This class is offered to educate, support, and empower the parents of our church, pre-school, and community, as well as anyone who works with children. The Love and Logic approach, which has been in existence for more than 40 years, leads to fewer power struggles and to more happy moments as a family. You do not have to be perfect to raise responsible, empathetic kids! Participants who attended this class when it was offered in 2015 were overwhelmingly positive about the difference the strategies and insights made in their parenting. Approaches appreciated most were: less talking and staying calm, making enforceable statements, offering choices, and letting kids solve their own issues. The class is structured to include interaction, instruction, video, and discussion.

 

Men’s Group

Facilitators: Members of the group, Room 307

A core group of men is committed to creating a community of trust among men of all ages in our church. There are offsite outreach projects, fun activities, and opportunities to hold one another accountable, as well as meeting together on Wednesday evenings. WNH is a time of study and discussion of characters from the Old Testament with Bill DeMora, Jack Diffendarfer, Marc Maly, and Mike Myers taking turns facilitating. Each session will start after clean-up of the Family Life Center. This group is open to all men who value interaction with other men, working, growing, serving, and having fun together.

 

Knitters, Crocheters, Crafters

Welcome Center

You are invited to use the Welcome Center to work on projects and to interact with one another.

 

Prayer Room

Room 311

Looking for a quiet place to read, study, pray, or simply be still? We are fortunate to have a space in our church designed specifically for those purposes. The prayer room provides a peaceful place for silence, a set-apart place to read scripture slowly and reflectively, a place to pray without distractions, and a place to simply “be.”

 

Leading Men: Historic Lancaster, PA

Facilitator:  Bob Frick, Room 410

Leading Men: Historic Lancaster, PA, is a weekly PowerPoint series. Dr. Robert Frick, historian and presenter, will share the lives and times of 22 Historic Downtown Lancastrians. Grouped into six categories–Initiators, Pennsylvania’s Only U.S. President, Ministers, Proponents, Merchants, and Artists and Inventors–the brief biographies will demonstrate the critical roles these figures played in making Lancaster great. Participants should prepare for lively presentations filled with interesting facts and peppered with humor. Dr. Frick’s goal is education with a smile.
