This Sabbath @ The Place- Spiritual Support: Seminar @ The Place with Dr. Bryan Cafferky- THIS weekend of April 29 & 30

Dr. Bryan Cafferky will present a FREE SEMINAR at The Place on untangling family dynamics and changing your family tree. He will share practical tools to help you navigate tricky family dynamics and avoid common relational pitfalls. Recognize how relational triangles and emotional cutoffs are common ways that families use to avoid facing hard truths— with destructive consequences rippling down to the next generations. Dissect the troublesome relational dynamics that hurt Abraham’s family. Identifying these “old” family patterns helps unlock refreshing possibilities for our current relationships. Learn how shifting your mindset and behaviors can free family members from the baggage of generational millstones. It only takes one person to change a pattern. You can transform the present and future fabric of your family tree.

Dr. Bryan Cafferky has a PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy and an MDiv with emphasis in Family Ministry). He is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, is an AAMFT Approved Supervisor and Certified Family Life Educator. Dr. Cafferky has over 10 years performing/teaching Improvisational Theater.

The seminar will meet on Friday night, April 29 at 7 p.m. at The Place. And continue Sabbath morning at 9:30 a.m. Dr. Cafferky will preach during our worship service. We will have a fellowship lunch and then the seminar will conclude Sabbath afternoon at 2 p.m.
