A new small group is starting: COVID-19 Transition: Redesigning My New Normal, in Christ
This is a small group developed for those who are vaccinated yet, for a variety of reasons, may feel reluctant to come out of sheltering. They may be feeling unsafe, confused, and unclear about the best approaches to take. They may know they need to reconnect with others but just cannot find the motivation.
If this is you, you’re not alone. It’s a nationwide issue and can be very challenging. Melody has been developing her own redesign and has wonderful strategies that work, to share with you!
Come and develop steps to prayerfully create your individual reopening, done using your inner wisdom at your own pace. Come and learn professionally researched calming and healing tools to aid you in a safe and accepting atmosphere.
Group will be held on July 21, 1:00 pm in person at Trinity; A second group is scheduled on Thursdays, noon on Zoom. Each group meets for 6 weeks, 1.5 hours.
To sign up or ask questions contact Melody Romeo and indicate your interest and the best day for you. Space is limited so please contact me soon. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 360-461-5595
