This last weekend over 125 individuals from Salvation Army ARC’s throughout the upper Midwest attended Echo Grove Camp in Michigan learning about Healthy Relationships as taught by Family & Community Services staff. Moving from addiction and reestablishing relationship with family is difficult. FCS helps make that transition easier.
Here are some of the things people had to say about their experience:
“You all did such a great job! God sure knows what I need and when I need it. Thank you for being His instrument in my life.”
“Great Retreat. Keep it going in the future.”
“Very well facilitated and a blessing.”
“I’m having a great time here and I think the Centers need to have more classes like this.”
“Since being here I have enjoyed myself very much. I am grateful for the opportunity to participate in everything here.”
“Though[t] provoking and action-inducing. Very informative and interesting. Thoroughly enjoyed the sessions.”
“Since being here I have enjoyed myself very much. I am grateful for the opportunity to participate in everything here. ”
“Thank God for you. Thank you!”
We couldn’t say it better ourselves. Good job to all our staff for helping people move on to self-sufficiency!
