LFC-WestLake Classes

Welcome 101

If you’re new to Lake Forest and you are looking for opportunities to make connections and grow in your faith, the best starting place is our Welcome 101 course.

During these sessions, our pastors will lead you on a journey to help you identify where you are spiritually and also help you define your next step. As you discover your role in God’s story, you’ll build relationships, find places to share your gifts and have an opportunity to become a LFC Ministry Partner (our term for member).

Discovering Strength in Your Marraige

Led by Aron Gibson
Email Lori Ebersold with any questions. 

There is often a great deal of focus on what’s wrong with marriage and how we can fix it. But what if we were to focus on what’s good, what’s strong, and how it can be even better.

That’s what Discovering Strength in Your Marriage is all about. In this two-hour workshop, couples will learn about the strengths they bring as individuals to their relationship. They will also learn how they can value and partner with the strengths of their spouse for a stronger marriage relationship!

Whether you’ve been married for a few months or a few decades, this will be a fun and encouraging opportunity to invest in your relationship. Note: each person will need to complete a 25 minute “Strengths Test” (we will send you all the info) prior to attending. If you have already done the Strength Finder Test, you can simply send us your results, too. We look forward to discovering the strength of your marriage with you!

Cost to register is $10/couple. Only one member of married couple must register. (Plus, additional $15 to take StrengthsFinder test if you have never done so.) Free childcare for ages 0-10.
