Steeper Steps Ongoing

Our group commenced Steeper Steps last Thursday evening and our plan is to complete it in a record 9 days! Yes, we'll be done with the 4 sessions this Saturday afternoon, before trick-or-treating begins!

Steeper Steps is the "graduate" course to the Steps Along the Journey and encompasses the concepts of anger, grace and forgiveness, which are vital components of any relationship. Rex & Clarie Kosack are the sole facilitators for this program as Rex created all the material himself several years ago.

For couples who have completed Steps, it's time to get your group together for Steeper Steps! It's something you won't want to miss!
