Women's Support Group: Safe People - FULL

This Support Group is Full. No more registrations will be taken. Please stay tuned for the next time we offer this valuable group. Join our E-News to not miss a thing! 

All women wanting to develop a healthy, balanced approach to relationships are welcome.

traffic-light-876056_1920.jpg

This women’s support group is based on the Safe People curriculum by Dr Henry Cloud and Dr John Townsend.

Many of us have invested in relationships that have left us deeply wounded. We’ve been abandoned or taken advantage of, and left with little to show for what we’ve given to the relationship. We’ve lost our sense of security and personal value in the process.

Come discover what makes some people relationally safe, and how to avoid unhealthy entanglements. You’ll learn about things within yourself that jeopardize your relational security and you’ll find out how to develop a balanced, healthy approach to relationships.

Pre-registration is required.

When: Mondays, September 17 - November 12 from 6:30-8:30pm

Location: our Ministry Center in Blaine, MN (address will be given when you register).

Cost: $45 per person. No one is turned away due to inability to pay.
