Mar 19, Apr 16
Facilitators: Janelle Braun and Donna Hainstock
Women’s Night is an evening for women of all ages to connect and make space for deeper relationship and community. We hope to fill the room with meaningful, real guided conversation and laughter (or tears?) as we study scripture and pray together. We’ll take refuge from our daily commitments once a month to find rest, fill our cups (literally and figuratively), share our stories, find support and encourage one another wherever we are in our journeys of faith in Jesus.
This year we are studying The Beatitudes: Living in Sync with the Reign of God by Darrell Johnson. Copies are available for purchase.

Feb 27, Mar 26, Apr 30
Facilitator: Paul Kroeker, author of In the Way of Jesus
Imagine living in Biblical times and meeting Jesus, in person, for the first time. How would it go? Would you like him? Would he like you? How would you respond to his personal invitation to, “Come follow me”? Does this happen today? Jesus prayed that his followers would be known for their extravagant love for one another (John 17:23). Let’s listen together and see where he leads.
The Lectio Course: How to Hear God by Praying the Bible
Jan 30 – Feb 27

The Lectio Course focuses primarily on learning to hear God’s voice through lectio divina, an ancient way of reading the Bible. Each week we will explore what it means to engage Scripture through this ancient practice of sacred reading: Lectio Divina. If you are longing to grow in prayer, discern God’s voice and fall in love with the Bible — this is the course for you.
Feb 20 – May 7
Alpha is a 12 week video based course to explore the essential questions of faith and life from the Christian viewpoint. Each week will include small group discussions of the topic in an open and safe environment.
The Alpha content is intended for those who may have limited experience with Christian faith or wanting to explore essential questions pertaining to faith and life. Each week includes small group discussion of the topic to ask clarifying questions and share perspectives. Participants should expect to better understand the evidence for a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and possibly make new friendships while doing so.
Let’s Talk About Sex (Again)
Facilitator: Brian Kauste, TMP Family Pastor
Gen Z and Gen Alpha are facing new challenges and trends related to sexuality and gender. As parents, it can be overwhelming and somewhat scary navigating these topics. The goal of these two weeks is to present ways to engage these topics well with your kids and help you grow in your own understanding as well.
Loneliness in a Broken and Healing World
Mar 26 – Apr 9
Facilitator: Carolyn Klassen, Therapist & Author
Understanding the causes and effects of loneliness–individually and societally, can help the lonely understand themselves and begin to take small, attainable steps to move out of loneliness, and help the rest of us develop compassion and support for the lonely. Knowing and understanding the spirit of God at work within us is a powerful instrument to move people towards connectedness. This course will have practical research-based teaching, approachable activities and meaningful discussion around the topic of loneliness
Video Games & Social Media

The time our kids and youth spend on screens has dramatically increased over the years. Navigating screen time often becomes a source of frustration for both parents and kids. What are the positives of online gaming? What are the negatives? Is social media good or bad for our world? What does the bible have to say about it all? Join us for this interactive video session geared particularly for elementary and middle school parents.
