Guiding Families is a curriculum and discussion based group for families and friends of LGBT+ individuals who are seeking practical, loving, and biblically formed guidance on LGBT+inclusion and relational care. Guiding Families has three primary goals:
- To learn how to respond well, demonstrate compassion, avoid hurtful mistakes, and restore trust and relationship with LGBT+ loved ones.
- To wrestle with what it means to love generously and show a radical acceptance.
- To take steps to mobilize the church to love, care and include anyone who has felt excluded, pushed away, condemned, or minimized by promoting secure families, safe churches, and a strong faith in Jesus Christ.
To learn more, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tuesdays, 7-9 p.m., Kennett Campus

Willowdale’s Counseling Scholarship program provides financial assistance to those in need. Complete the application HERE.
We know that often this can be a sensitive matter and we believe one of the best approaches is in biblical relationship environments where the individual/family can discuss concerns and needs with a coach.
Here is a general outline of our approach:
Content: Bootcamp covers budget, debt snowball, and building an emergency fund.
How is content delivered: One-on-One with a Willowdale Coach.
Cost: $129 (The cost of the Financial Peace University material is covered by the participant. Materials can be purchases online at DaveRamsey.com.) *Need based scholarships are available upon request.
Timeline: Depends on the individual but likely 6 weekly meetings with 2 monthly follow-ups.
How it starts: When the individual/family is ready, we coordinate an initial meeting with a Willowdale Coach to discuss the unique details of the situation, as well as “what to expect”. The coach will then match the individual/family with the appropriate resources.
If you are interested in financial counseling, please contact Lisa Baez Colon at firstname.lastname@example.org to get started.
