Hello friends! We hope you are doing well and enjoying the autumn that is here at last. Here are a few things to update you about, happening at WGA.
We are so excited that Greg Navitsky has joined our staff. He joined us back in the summer and has already been making an impact for the better. You can read more about him here. Welcome Greg!
Thursday Night Support Group
September kicked of our 2022-2023 “School Year.” We began with our ReSOULutions module where we talked about “Seeking True Connection: Addictions are False Solutions”. We are currently in our module called “Understanding Sexual & Gender Identity & Same Sex Attraction”. Next up, in November, is “Roadblocks to Healing: Wounds & Broken Relationships can Hinder Growth”.
We currently meet in-person on the 1st & 3rd Thursdays (you can stream the talk if you like).and via Zoom on the 2nd & 4th Thursday nights of the month. If you’d like to check out our meeting, please let us know. We’d love to see you and are happy to be able to provide this resource for folks outside of the Denver area now via Zoom. Come join us!
We continue to be available to walk alongside people who need some individual time to process issues that have come up in their lives. There are a variety of ways we can meet… via phone, Zoom, or in-person. Please let us know if you would like to check-in. We are available via phone or Zoom for those outside of the Denver Metro Area, as well as those within.
We’ve had a busy fall already. Most recently, Mary and I traveled to Derby, Kansas where we presented a workshop at a Friends Church there. Greg and Scott spoke at Colorado Christian University. We have been at a couple of local missions events, another Friends church in Colorado Springs, and Scott was a guest on the podcast of a local church. Coming up, Scott will be speaking at Celebration Community Church in November, and the staff will be holding a workshop for a church in Parker.
We love to share about WGA and speak about topics of gender and sexuality. Please consider having us come to your church!
On October 1st, we held our 5th Story Slam. It was fun to come together and hear some interesting 5-minute stories from our speakers. they shared on the theme “Hindsight.” About 65 people were in attendance and we raised just over $21,000! What a blessing that was!
WGA’s donations have been fairly consistent when compared to recent years. We are so grateful for that! As with everyone else experiencing the effects of inflation, those dollars do not seem to go as far as they once did. If you are able, a donation would help us to withstand this. If you already support WGA and are able, would you consider increasing your regular gift amount?
