Re-Parenting with Dolores Marciniec
When: May 16, 23 (Thursdays)
9:30-11:00a
Where: Phillips Hall
Cost: Free

Explore your family heritage...Understand yourself...Grow as a child of God.

The Bible frequently portrays family lines and the ripple effects of decisions through generations. Ripple effects can be spotted in our own lives. Our time together will show how formative our histories and experiences can be. We can be profoundly impacted by things we may not recognize. Insight is often the launch point for meaningful change.

Dolores will show us how to construct a  genogram . A genogram can shed light on how your past has predisposed you to participate in your life, your marriage, your parenting, and your other relationships.  
Women's Evening Bible Study
Join in fellowship with other women as Rachael Frase endeavors on a 4-week journey through Ephesians with us. This will be a rich time of delving into the Word of God together. All women are welcome to join!

May 20-21, 2019
Has a friend or family member ever asked you for your advice about how to respond to a conflict in his or her life and you didn’t know how to help them? Have you ever been deeply hurt because of a conflict that you did not know how to overcome? In fact, haven’t we all? The good news is the Bible offers a great road map for how to respond to conflict in a way that glorifies God while building truly restored and reconciled relationships.
Trinitarian Congregational Church’s Peacemaking Team will be sponsoring an ICC Peace University Conflict Coaching Training on Monday and Tuesday, May 20-21, 2019. It will be an instructive and interactive training which will show people how to use God’s biblical peacemaking principles so they can learn how to help themselves, as well as others, when they encounter the conflict that abounds in our lives.

In order to have time to complete the pre-course work, people should register as soon as possible. More information about the training can be found at https://tccwayland.org/icc-conflictcoaching-training/ , which has a link to register with ICC Peace for the training along with links to get more information.
