Help your student transition into high school successfully with Next STEP, a program designed to teach incoming 9th grade students the skills they’ll need to thrive. Over four weeks, counselor Mark Crowe, M.Ed., LPC, will share with students the STEPs: Social adjustment (including social media), Time Management, Expect More, and Prepare for Success.

Couple Connection

What makes a marriage extraordinary? What are couples in satisfying relationships doing differently than couples in distressed relationships? We will explore these and other questions in a four-week marriage enrichment workshop that describes God’s blueprint for relationships. Grace Point counselor Dr. Mary Causey will present the workshop. Mary is an adjunct lecturer for the Master’s Counseling Department at Sam Houston State University and has extensive training in working with couples.

DivorceCare and DC4K

DivorceCare is a weekly seminar and support group for people who are separated or divorced. Leading the group is Susan Jones. DivorceCare is a place where you can meet other divorced and separated adults and hear about ways to heal from the hurt of divorce.

DivorceCare also offers a coinciding program for your children called DC4K. DC4K is a special group that helps children ages 5 – 12 heal from the hurt caused by the separation or divorce of their parents. Children become friends with other children who understand how they feel and the things they are going through because of the divorce of their parents.

StepFamily Rhythms: Thriving Couples/Thriving Children

When couples marry or remarry, they have new hope and new expectations for the marriage, for their children and for joy anew! However, stepfamilies often try to relate similarly to intact/biological families, often due to lack of knowledge and preparation on how to form a stepfamily. Also the word “step” may bring up underlying feelings of embarrassment, shame, and failure. Though some areas are common to both traditional families and stepfamilies, stepfamilies pose some unique challenges and benefits. This four-week educational and interactive seminar will help you understand the many rhythms of stepfamily living and how to thrive.

  • Week 1: Stepfamily basics, the marriage/remarriage, biblical stepfamilies
  • Week 2: Expectations: the couple, the children, extended family, friends, comparison of stepfamily development versus intact biological families, new roles
  • Week 3: Finances, communication and conflict, common stepfamily problems and solutions
  • Week 4: Parenting in stepfamilies, unique benefits of a stepfamily, God’s healing grace

Led by Grace Point Counseling Center's Susan Jones and Margie Jordan. Both also have experience in stepfamily living.

Child care is available by reservation.
