Wellness Night

Wellness Nights we gather as a community to learn more about Mental Health/Wellness

Wellness Nights are opportunities to gather as a community to learn more about Mental Health/Wellness. Some may be more educational in nature, some may be more about connecting as a church community, some may be more about supporting one another...

We are so excited to welcome Dr. Kayla Pray to our campus! 

Let me share a little about Dr. Kayla Pray. Dr. Pray is a Licensed Clinical Pastoral Counselor who uses the best of psychology with Biblical foundations and perspectives. She believes that each of us was created in the image of God and life was meant to be lived joyfully in His presence. (direct quote from her website).

WELLNESS NIGHT (October 4, 2022)

In October, we welcomed Donna Sugano, Pastor of Family Ministry at Santa Barbara Community Church, for a session on opening lines of communication with our kids about their bodies and sex. Titled Time for the Talk: Equipping Parents for Sex-Education. This evening was geared toward parents and grandparents who have children/grandchildren ages 2-18. Feedback was wonderful as participants stated that they walked away with more knowledge and actual tools for having conversations with their children/grandchildren. The turnout was great, lots of moms, dads and grandparents!

Our Assistant Director of Family Wellness, Melissa Bolt shares more:

I love that Donna Sugano really focuses on our relationships with our kids! Really, this is about so much more than “sex-ed”; it is about having conversations with our kids and keeping the lines of communication open. 

Donna shares:

We are not simply providing our children with a list of dos and don’ts but are instead guiding them into healthy and God-honoring patterns of living and being. This is about more than sex. Comprehensive sex education also focuses on relationships and how they should view and treat others and themselves.
