Things to Know

This small-group based ministry is open to the public. There is no fee. Course materials will be provided. This ministry meets on an ongoing basis at Word of Life Church. You can join the group at any time.

Rules of the Road

1. Go gentle with each other. Anything that happens to anyone else can happen to you under the right (or wrong) circumstances.

2. No judgment on others' stories. Life is difficult enough without making it more difficult for others. There are no "dumb" questions.

3. Confidentiality. Do not share what anyone says in this group or outside the group.

4. Priority. While you are in the course, give the group meetings priority.

5. Participation. Everyone participates and no one dominates.

6. Openness. Growth comes as we are honest with ourselves and open to new ideas.

7. Avoid getting involved in a new serious relationship until you finish the course. What you learn will help you make good decisions in the future.
