BINDING THE WOUNDS
February 2-June 28, 2016 • Vancouver Community Church
This class starting Feb. 2nd is great for anyone who would like to learn more about connection, healthy relationships, and how to heal your heart. The material is written by Ron and Nancy Rockey, who are both Harvard trained psychologists and have an amazing personal story that they share a little of each week in their DVD. After watching the DVD, we will go through a workbook in gender specific small groups. We all sign a confidentiality agreement which helps us all feel safer about sharing our experience. Sharing is encouraged, but not required. It’s just nice to know there are others who have been through similar things in their lives as we have. It’s a great way to find relief for emotional pain, deal with unwanted or repeating habits or patterns in your life, learn how to reconcile with those you’ve been estranged from, find motivation for things, or just make new friends. This class will be held Tuesday evenings from 7:00-9:00 pm at the Vancouver Adventist Community Church in Vancouver, Wash.
