GriefShare

A grief support group of people who have experienced the loss of a loved one. GriefShare is designed to help individuals cope with the searing pain of loss in their lives and to unlock their emotions for healing. This 13-week course also involves small, daily devotions to help each individual stay connected to God. Attending GriefShare helps to form new relationships with others who also have experienced the loss of an important person in their lives. 

You are welcome to join Griefshare at any time during the session as each lesson does not build on another. If you already have the current Griefshare book, there is no charge to attend.

Griefshare will be offered during the following WoodmenU sessions:

Block 1 - beginning September 9, 2019 
Block 2 - beginning January 27, 2020

For more information, contact Brent Williams at 719.388.4975.

Premarital Workshop

This workshop is designed to help you build a strong foundation for your marriage and is offered twice a year in January and September. Using Les and Leslie Parrot's "Saving Your Marriage Before It Starts" or "SYMBIS" curriculum, you can expect weekly homework and topics discussed such as Purpose, Marriage & Love, Communication, Conflict Resolution, Needs, Differences & Expectations, Roles, Responsibilities & Decision-making, Sexual Intimacy, Financial Management, Parents and In-Laws, Remarrieds and Blending Couples.

Each couple will have a mentor couple during the workshop and will meet with them a minimum of 2-3 times outside of class to discuss specific issues. 

WVC requires that couples totally complete the Premarital Workshop at least 3 months before your wedding date. Satisfactory completion of this workshop (or comparable sessions with an approved counselor) is required if you plan to be married at Woodmen Valley Chapel or to ask one of the Woodmen Valley Chapel pastors to perform your wedding.  If WVC workshop timing doesn't work with your wedding date, you can email Brent Williams to obtain names of Christian counselors who provide comprehensive premarital counseling.

You do not have to be engaged, attend Woodmen, or have your wedding ceremony at Woodmen Valley Chapel to attend our premarital workshop.

The Premarital Workshop will be offered during Woodmen U in Block 1 (beginning September 9, 2019).
