1. We are offering a Depression & Anxiety program again. It is a great 8 week program lead by a trained professional and by a partner church. Cost is $60 for someone who worships at a church partner. The program starts October 8 and will be held at Coopersville Library. If a parent would like to take the course with a child, it would be treated as one fee. It was a very well received program when offered last March hence we are offering it again. Although this time it is being held in Coopersville, it is available to anyone in the Allendale, Coopersville, and surrounding areas.
