Due to the treacherous weather we’re currently experiencing, the sisters have asked us to cancel this event for tomorrow. They are so concerned about us driving in the blowing snow and frigid temperatures. The good news, however, is that they have given us March 23rd as an alternate date! Mark your calendars now for the further adventures to be had in Oldenburg!
‘Transformations’ is a Therapeutic Group for Transgender individuals seeking to live their truth. The goal of the group is to provide a safe and supportive therapeutic experience for participants to discuss issues related to beginning or continuing a process of transitioning, including emotional, social, relational, spiritual or medical issues. This group can be used as a component of an individual’s therapy requirement prior to HRT or medical transition services.
The group will be co-facilitated by Rebecca Bickel LCSW and Kristopher Posthuma BS. Rebecca has 15 years of therapeutic experience working with the GLBT community in individual, family and group settings. Kristopher has been a facilitator, educator, and public speaker around LGBT concerns for a decade.

Because the roads are so icy, the Course in Miracles class for Thursday, January 16 is canceled.
The Church’s annual trip to Oldenburg to offer soothing services (hand and foot massages, Reiki, facial massage, etc.) to the sisters who live in the retirement community of the convent, is quickly approaching on SUNDAY, January 26, 2014. If you’ve participated in the past, you know what a blessing this is for the sisters as well as for those of us who perform the services. If you’ve not been a part of this healing day in the past, please plan on joining us! It’s a great way to get to know other church members and participate in a meaningful way to our outreach in the community! Dress comfortably (it’s usually VERY warm in the area where we work)
We will be carpooling immediately following the service and so need to know the number of people planning to attend and those who would be available to drive. Please contact me by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to sign up or ask any questions you may have about the event. If you are unable to attend but would like to contribute to help purchase supplies and snacks, Frank Ziegler will be at church next Sunday to accept your gifts.
