Hope: A Users Manual | Garage at Highland Hall
A combined class for members of the Bridges & Crossroads Classes taught by Rev. Elizabeth Goodrich, a former associate pastor at IPC.
- Bridges: A class for parents with children from infants to sixth graders who are looking to form friendships and grow in faith, marriage, and parenting. We represent varying stages in our life, faith journey, and knowledge of scripture.
Facilitator: Anna Hartzog
- Crossroads: For parents of older children and teenagers, the Crossroads Class provides a place to engage in faith conversations and fellowship as we navigate the intersections of life that tug at us in so many directions. We are preparing our kids for adulthood, caring for aging parents, mourning the loss of loved ones, seeking purpose after parenting, and navigating our own transitions as people of faith. Come join us and experience the authentic friendship, calm, solace, and centered living you are longing to find!
