Registration open now!
Healthy Cooking – Nourishing Food & Community :: Monday Evenings (1/15-1/29) 6:30-8pm
Join us as we cook together and create healthy habits at the beginning of this new year. Together we will explore new ideas for cooking and creating in the kitchen, expand our knowledge about health and wellness, and remember that health exists in our entire being. In being our healthiest self, we can better love and serve one another. The fee for this class is $20/person, which will cover the cost of the recipe ingredients. Childcare available for those who RSVP, children ages 10 and up are welcome to participate in the class.
Tech-Wise Family :: Tuesday Evenings (1/16-1/30) 6:30-8pm
Description: Who do we want to be as a family? What kinds of choices do we need to make as a family in a technological society to grow closer to our vision for our family? We all have the best intentions to live thoughtfully and raise our children intentionally in this digital world, but life is busy and complicated. As a continuation from the Digital Discipleship sermon series, join us as we carve out time for 3 weeks to discuss these kinds of questions in community with other Jacob’s Well families. There is no fee for this class, but please BYO paper or digital copy of The Tech-Wise Family by Andy Crouch (free on some apps such as Hoopla). Childcare available for those who RSVP.
Yoga :: Tuesday evenings (1/9-1/30) 6:30-7:30pm
This class is now full
All levels are welcome. Beginner, experienced, or anything in between — there is a place for you on your mat. The style of yoga taught is Power Vinyasa Yoga. It is a powerful, energetic, and playful class that will support you wherever you are and create connection through movement and breath. Yoga mats are available if needed. Cost is $20. Childcare available for those who RSVP.
Financial Peace University :: Wednesday Evenings (1/10-3/14, no class on 2/14) 6:30-8:15pm
We all need a plan for our money. Financial Peace University (FPU) is that plan! It teaches God’s ways of handling money. Through video teaching, class discussions and interactive small group activities, FPU presents biblical, practical steps to get from where you are to where you’ve dreamed you could be. This plan will show you how to get rid of debt, manage your money, spend and save wisely, and much more! Cost is $100 per household. Contact Jim Gum for reduced scholarship fee options. Childcare is available for those who RSVP ($30 additional if you are using childcare for the duration of the 9-weeks).
Creating Connection in Marriage – A Weekend Workshop :: Saturday 2/24 (9am-6pm) & Sunday 2/25 (9am-3pm)
This class is now full
This 2-day weekend workshop will focus on the basic components of romantic relationship and will help couples identify the things that get in the way of feeling connected and close to each other. At times, we all become lost or confused in our relationships, and we often get stuck in negative patterns of responding to each other. Within this workshop, we will begin to look at how these patterns develop and how to create an exit out of them. This class will help individuals better understand their own emotional responses and needs, and the responses and needs of their spouse. The goal will be to provide couples with opportunities to begin conversations that will help deepen trust and intimacy. Facilitated by Bethany Butler Myers, LCSW and Trey Hill, Ph.D. Both are certified in Emotionally Focused Therapy. The cost for this course is $200 per couple. This is limited to 14 couples; there will be a waitlist once the class fills up. No childcare will be available.
Institutes: Spiritual Formation Classes
Institutes are formation courses offered twice a year: in the Summer & Winter. In addition to learning and growing in our faith, Institutes are also a great way to connect with and meet other people at Jacob’s Well. These courses are open up to the public as well.
A variety of themes are covered in these courses: spiritual formation, justice engagement, & courses focused on relational development. There are also offerings that are geared towards friendship and play (soccer leagues, cooking classes, running groups, etc.).
Look for course offerings and online signups during the months of May & December.
