Ward Church has partnered with PCS Counseling’s team of group counselors to provide dynamic, weekly interactive life coaching groups to the entire community. These groups, held at Ward Church in room G724, guide participants to examine their lives, find areas they would like to improve, and support group members as they work to make proactive changes. PCS Counseling’s team of group counselors includes Dr. John Mlinarcik, PhD, LMSW, CEO; Laura Dyas, LBSW, LPC, MA; and Matt Swartz, LLMSW. There is no need to register: just show up! Thanks to Ward’s generosity in providing these sessions, all are welcome to attend for no charge; donations to Ward Church will be gladly accepted if you feel so compelled.
