3Crosses Online: Co-Ed (Anger Education)

When: Tuesday, Evening

Anger Education

A new Community Group Beginning Soon
Tuesdays | 6:00pm - 7:15pm

The Bible has much to say about anger. It gives examples of both righteous and unrighteous anger. For example, the book of Exodus portrays the Lords' anger burning against a stiff-necked people (Ex 32:9-10). This anger led to their destruction. The Lord's anger is always righteous. But is ours? How can one know the difference between demonstrating appropriate anger as opposed to anger that is inappropriate and destructive? For many of us, our anger stems from responding inappropriately to situations and internal conflict. This kind of anger is sinful and destructive. But how can we know how to possess the kind of anger that isn't sinful or personally destructive? What tools do we need to overcome the kind of anger that gets us in trouble and instead, bring glory to God?

The goal of this course is to equip anyone looking for the proper biblical principles to ensure their anger doesn't lead them to sin.

This education is not only for those who can identify with anger but also for those that are looking for ways to navigate through encounters with unjustifiably angry people.

Anger Management Institute Workbooks ($25) available in class. No childcare.

3Crosses Online: Co-Ed (Nutrition - Daniel Plan)

When: Saturday, Morning

This group is for people who are ready to give their food struggles an expiration date. We'll help you reach your healthy goals and grow closer to God through the process.

The Daniel Plan is far more than a diet plan. It is an appetizing approach to achieving a healthy lifestyle by optimizing the five key essentials of faith, food, fitness, focus, and friends.

Unlike the thousands of other books on the market, this book is not about a new diet, guilt-driven gym sessions, or shame-driven fasts. Your path to holistic health begins here where we guide you to incorporate healthy choices into your current lifestyle.

The concepts in this book will encourage you to deepen your relationship with God and develop a community of supportive friends who will encourage you to make smart food and fitness choices each and every day.

This results in gradual changes that transform your life as they help you: Conquer your worst cravings. Find healthy replacement foods for the foods you love. Discover exercise you enjoy. Boost your energy and kick-start your metabolism. Lose weight. Think more clearly. Explore biblical principles for health and ultimately create an all-around healthy lifestyle

Learn how to tap into the desires God gave you to consume food without letting food consume you.

Care: K9's For Care

K-9s For Care is a ministry which brings animals and people together to provide friendship and warmth to those who are in difficult situations, living alone, or who are in a hospital or nursing home.

Why bring animals on this kind of visit?

These gentle animals have a very special way of demonstrating God's unconditional love by providing a beautiful connection with hurting and lonely people. Children in hospitals or the elderly living alone "light up" when they are able to interact with an animal. God has given to animals the ability to provide comfort, humor and unconditional love. They help us form friendships where we are able to share faith and God's love with others.

If you've considered joining our team but weren't sure you and your dog were a good fit, please contact us we would love to speak with you.

Care: Blended Families

When: Wednesday, Evening

Statistics report that divorce rates in Blended Families are between 60-80%. We understand that Blended Families often experience challenges. The sheer number of influences in the lives of each Blended Family member indicates that there are bound to be conflicts.

The Blended Families Ministry was designed to provide useful tools, support, and ultimately point people to THE ONE (Jesus Christ) who has all the answers.

Our hope is that the families we serve will not only SURVIVE, but THRIVE!

It has been said that "Blended Families don't have a family tree - they have a family forest!!"

Each person in the Blended Family is uniquely created AND there are many multifaceted relationships involved...step-parents, step-children, step-siblings, half-siblings, step-grandparents-aunts-uncles-cousins, biological parents, adoptive parents, foster parents, the list goes on. It's easy to see how life in a blended family can, at times, become complicated.

Since each person and each family is unique, the Blended Family Ministry at 3Crosses believes there are limited "cookie-cutter" answers for how to blend your family. However, in learning to listen to and follow Jesus through the challenges we face together we are confident that the Lord will be faithful to transform our lives, the lives of our children, and the lives of others around us.

We firmly believe Jesus at his promise when he said: "But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid." -John 14:26-27

If you would like more information about Blended Families, please email diana@3crosses.org

When: Thursday, Evening

Parent Project

Empowering Parents and Transforming Kids..

Parent Project classes are specifically intended to empower
Christian parents with faith-based parent principles and skills to raise respectful and responsible children.

In an interactive, support group setting, parents learn
and practice specific prevention and intervention strategies,
particularly for strong-willed, oppositional, defiant and destructive juvenile behaviors.

While the curriculum is primarily directed to parents with existing challenging behaviors of their pre-teen and teen-aged children,
the content is basic and fundamental for parents who wish to develop parenting skills to avoid potential future challenges with their children.

DON'T WAIT FOR BEHAVIORAL PROBLEMS TO DEVELOP
WITH YOUR CHILDREN.

This class will prepare you to be alert, proactive and to
hopefully avoid the future pain and cost of reversing unwanted,
learned behaviors of children.

Registration and cost for the Parent Project is
$100 for a single parent and $150 for a couple. 
Curious parents are invited to attend the first session as an observer; however, registration and payment must be made by the start of the second session.
