LIFE SKILLS

At Green Valley Community Church we know that life isn't really as random as it sometimes seems. We understand the importance of equipping people with the tools and skills they need to help them through all that life has to offer—the good times as well as the bad. That’s why we are devoted to offering a diverse program of classes and support groups to residents of El Dorado County.

This year, most classes are free with your only cost being the price of the book. We've provided Amazon links below, but you can purchase or borrow the books anywhere! Classes with cost will provide the book/class materials for you. Please register for classes with registration links so instructor will know how many people to expect. Looking forward to seeing you!
