Wednesdays at Hillcrest
Pick one topic and sign up below. February 13 through March 6, 6:30 to 8 PM. (Because of weather related cancellations, we have extended our Wednesday groups through March 20.)
On Wednesdays we're gathering around new topics for four weeks. It's a great way to connect and learn! Contact Julie Cook at with questions.
New for Session #2! Eyes of the Heart: Seeing Ourselves and Others through a New Lens with Craig Lueck, Master Artist at Hallmark. This four week creative journey will challenge us to observe ourselves and our world with fresh eyes. It will be a collaborative and inspiring exploration led by artist and scripture-lover, Craig Lueck, and will include personal reflection, group discussion, and hands-on experimentation. We will be asked to “look and see what the Lord has made” and to understand that “it is good.” We will work together to move beyond the obvious, to expose our blind spots, and to illuminate the eyes of our heart. Join us as we explore 1) Seeing Me. 2) Seeing Us, 3) Seeing God, and 4) Seeing More.
Returning! Where Research and Scripture Agree on Marital Health with Doug & Claudia Burford We’ll explore how secular research on the principles and practices underlying long, satisfied marriages is catching up with Scripture. In this course, Doug and Claudia Burford will share how their training with The Gottman Institute (UW, Seattle) accords with biblical teaching on love and marriage. Doug is a licensed professional counselor (KS) with dual specializations in trauma, and in couples counseling; Claudia is a licensed social worker at Children's Mercy Hospital and a trained parent educator. Two options: attend at Hillcrest OR watch from home through a Zoom conference. Details will be provided.
New for Session #2! Sit in on a new topic each week as different Hillcrest staff members lead our Staff Picks class. They’ll focus on different areas of expertise they are passionate about in the Christian faith. Our hope is that you will be challenged in your faith but also encouraged in your walk with Jesus.
