New to Town?

Unpacking the Boxes is a 10-week class for women in the Edmond and Oklahoma City area. The class is inspired by Susan Miller’s book After the Boxes are Unpacked: Moving On After Moving In. Women from the Memorial Road Church of Christ run the weekly meetings. The class is designed to help women connect with other women who are new to 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 in the Edmond area 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 5 to November 14.  Child care is provided.
