  • Safe People

    Every Wednesday6:30PMSeptember 1stAE 304 (old West C)

    Have you ever wondered...

    How can I learn to pick better friends?
    Why do I choose people who let me down?
    How do I attract irresponsible people?
    What is it about me that draws the wrong types? or Why am I drawn to the wrong types?

    Safe People deals with the problem of character discernment, a skill many of us lack. Yet the ability to determine good character in people is one of God's most vital ingredients for our personal and spiritual growth. Join us for a shortened 4-5 week course on determining safe people and how to be a safe person to others.

  • Complicated Grief

    Every Wednesday6:30 P.M.September 8AE 305 (old W-A)

    The death of a loved one by suicide presents special problems in grieving. There is often more shock, a greater sense of injustice, more guilt and blame, and a heightened sense of helplessness; and these all tend to complicate the healing process for survivors.

    There is a safe place at IBC for survivors to share their loss with others who are experiencing similar thoughts and feelings. This class is open to adult survivors of a loved one who died by suicide, and who have already gone through GriefShare.
