New to the Edmond/OKC Metro? Still trying to settle in?

unpacking the boxes

A class called Unpacking the Boxes is offered by Memorial Road Church of Christ to help you get settled into your new residence, learn about Edmond and the Oklahoma City metro, and introduce you to new friends! Kim and I both helped with the class a couple years ago and loved it! Any woman can come, invite your friends and you do not have to be a member to participate.

Unpacking the Boxes, an 11-week class inspired by Susan Miller’s book After the Boxes are Unpacked: Moving On After Moving In, is designed for women who are new to the Edmond/OKC area. Bible-based lessons will help you learn to move past the pain and loss of what you’ve left behind and toward an appreciation of your new community. You will have an opportunity to meet other newcomers and build friendships by sharing relocation challenges, memories of “home,” and common interests. The optional book may be purchased on the first day of class.

Class meets Wednesday mornings, 9:30-11:30, at Memorial Road Church of Christ, 2221 E. Memorial Road, from September 10 to November 19. Child care is provided.

This class is all about OKLAHOMA, having fun, getting to know new friends, helping you settle in, and it helps you learn how to be a “hostess with the mostess”, too. You can even win prizes in class, can’t get better than that. Let us know if you have any questions and we will be glad to help!
