A good harvest is what you put in to it

RICHMOND — But this I say, he which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully. Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work. (2 Corinthians 9:6-8 )

Upward Bound at Turning Point/Cope

UBM Turning Point: serves as an intervention program for adults with addictions and compulsive behaviors issues.  Turning Point is a point in your life where you have decided to make the right turn and address the issues that have enslaved you with a life hindering addiction. It is a place where you can understand life controlling issues, how they develop, and the impact they have on individuals and their families. It is a place where you can just be you and realize how others are having some of the same problems you are having. It is a place where you can feel safe in sharing some of the most intimate and private things in you life. It is a place where you can be loved for who you are, and not be judged or condemned because of what you have become. It is a place where you can receive biblical truth about what is going on in your life, and how you can overcome it.

UBM Cope: serves as a support program for adults and family members impacted by addictions and compulsive behaviors issues.  Cope is a group that is very concerned about the struggles their love ones are having with addiction, behavior, and relationship issues. The group learns how they  help their love ones. Many in this group have had to suffer the consequences of being a victim of circumstance. Consequently, many of the participants in this group have had to separate themselves from their love ones due to the lack of trust.

  • 3-2 AdventureMaze1.jpg An aMAZEing afternoon of exploration

    “I’m getting too old for this,” one father exclaimed as his little one tugged his hand toward the entrance of the maze for another go.
    Clad in knee pads and headlamps, a band of young explorers and a few brave adults, made their way through a network of dark tunnels. They passed through a black-light room and finally a triangular overhead bridge before they descended into a belly crawl to come out near where they began.

    Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee. Thus will I bless thee while I live: I will lift up my hands in thy name.
    My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness, and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips: When I remember thee upon my bed, and meditate on thee in the night watches.

    — Psalms 63:3-7
