Love & Logic


There's no substitute for learning alongside other parents, educators or counselors who are facing similar challenges! Lives change when people come together in small groups to learn Love and Logic techniques and benefit from individualized, ongoing guidance. Read about lives changed.

Love and Logic classes are different from other parenting and classroom management courses because they...

  • Are fun and entertaining

  • Provide practical tools you can use right away

  • Show how to provide discipline without losing a child's love or respect

  • Have fans who were raised with the Love and Logic approach

Tuesdays, October 8 thru November 12, 5:30pm-7pm, HW Fellowship Hall

Light dinner will be provided

Cost: $75/couple, $50 single

Childcare included.

Women's Book Club


Friday, 7pm, 3rd Friday of each month  Location: varies (to be determined by the group)

This book club is a fun, informal way for women to get together and share their thoughts on a variety of topics through the books that are read. Books may be secular or religious, non-fiction or fiction, classics or the newest best-seller, in any genre, but all will be discussed through a Christian’s viewpoint. Join us for Christian fun and fellowship, intellectual stimulation, a way to share ideas and insights, an opportunity to practice Christian discernment--and of course, food. Books will be chosen by the club's members.
