God spells out His plan of redemption and indescribable love through the life and times of Hosea, in effect making it an Old Testament enactment of John 3:16. Come and learn what Hosea has to teach us about how we are to live in our present day culture and the potential spiritual dangers we face.
Abortion, understanding & helping those who hurt will be an in-depth class describing the "abortion-minded" individual and how to be a safe person to help those facing unplanned pregnancies or hurting from an abortion experience. Over 2,900 woemn in the U.S. will have an abortion today, and too few have someone they can turn to who will simply listen to their story. These women need a safe place, a safe person to help voice their overwhelming emotions. Are you safe? Listening - seem easy right? But it's tougher than you think. It's a skill that requires attention, openness and compassion. Nonjudgmental listening is one of the most powerful acts we can provide to those who seek healing.
