Small group classes that meet you right where you are

Let's do this together.

Holding Hands

In this 6-week study for singles and couples, author Dr. Emerson unpacks five of the life-changing principles that he presents at the Love and Respect conference. It's a fantastic follow up for those who have read the book or attended a conference, but also serves as a wonderful introduction to the Love and Respect message. Check out this video:


This group starts Thursday, April 22 from 6:30-8:00pm in Room 113 and ends Thursday, May 27 (6 weeks).

Cost is $20/person. Since each week builds on the last, participants need to commit for the full 6 weekly discussions.

This class is full! Thank you for your interest and stay tuned for potential future classes.
