Healthy Church-Leader Training Classes

We will be offering Healthy Church Leaders' Training classes in September and October.  This 4-week class is designed for Bible study and small group leaders, those who are leading or supervising others in a church ministry, those who are pursuing ordination, as well as those who are recommended by pastoral staff for leadership training. 

Topics covered in the classes include: being a safe person, improving listening and effective communication, resolving conflict to reconciliation, addressing cross-cultural differences, navigating changes through the stages of life, ministering to others with compassion rather than codependency, practicing spiritual balance and healthy boundaries, as well as using our spiritual gifts and strengths to benefit the Body of Christ.. We will also use personality and spiritual gifts tests to better understand our individual personalities, gifts, and strengths.

Cheryl Wayman, LMFT, founding director of our church's counseling ministries for the past 21 years, will be teaching these classes with Dr. Denny Wayman, DMin in Pastoral Counseling and lead superintendent of our SoCal FM churches. Beverly Chen, LCSW, director of our Christian Counseling Referral Network, will be a guest speaker.  A pre-class interview is required with Cheryl before classes begin on Feb. 18 and there will be some preparation required in taking four personality, gifts and strengths assessments before classes begin. Please direct your questions and schedule your interview with her by email: cwayman@fmcsb.org before Aug. 31.

TRANSITION HOUSE

Since 1984, Transition House has developed a successful strategy for capable and motivated families to permanently regain self-sufficiency. The strategy is based on the understanding that the root cause of family homelessness is poverty. There may be other contributing factors, but underlying it all is poverty.
Transition House offers emergency shelter, transitional housing, and long-term affordable rental housing as well as a full continuum of anti-poverty services. The goal is to provide a realistic and lasting solution to poverty-based family homelessness.

Each year Transition House helps more than 700 community members – 350 of who use their three-stage housing program and services; the balance receives support through their homelessness prevention program. At least 90% of Transition House’s clients are our neighbors – they come from the greater Santa Barbara area.

At Free Methodist Church, we are honored to provide dinner and sack lunches for the residents of Transition House, 6 times each year. We are happy to accept specific food donations for the meals and cash donations.

Loads of Love

Loads of Love

Loads of Love is a way of caring for people who are struggling financially by assisting them to launder their own clothes. Loads of Love serves people that are living on the streets, in vehicles, in shelters or living with multiple families in a single family dwelling due to financial hardship. People served meet the definition of someone without a home, are food insecure, and live in poverty.

What Occurs? People in need of assistance are informed of regular opportunities to clean their clothes free of charge at local laundromats. Upon arriving at the laundromat, they are met by caring community volunteers that provide the money and laundry detergent needed to launder their clothes. Volunteers also focus on building relationships and provide a human connection often not experienced by those who live in poverty. Once trust is developed, volunteers are able to offer participants additional resources to meet other life needs.

The Loads of Love project would not exist without the generosity of numerous volunteers willing to give up some of their valuable time to provide for others in need. Even a couple hours of time committed to a project by any one individual, when coupled with commitments from other volunteers, can have amazing results. Special thanks to the many generous community members who donate their time and financial resources to assist our community need. 100% of the donations for this project support the costs of laundering clothes.

Additional information is available at: www.loadsoflovesb.org
