Sneak Peek Community Class

Crockpot Cooking

May 31, 2017, 6:30-8 p.m.

1 Night of Prep * 4 Meals * 4-6 Servings per Meal

Unlike our regular community classes that will each run for four weeks, this sneak peek course will be a condensed version that will meet only one night. You will walk away from this class with four recipes and four completed freezer meals that can be dumped in a crockpot to cook so that you and your family can come home to a nutritious home cooked meal.

Our Crockpot Class Menu Includes:

Chicken (Noodle) Soup

Cilantro Lime Chicken

Pork Chops with Apples and Carrots

Sausage and Peppers

You must sign up for this course and provide contact information so that we can confirm your registration prior to the class in order to hold your spot. This class will have a limited number of spots available so sign up here as soon as you can!


What are Community Classes?

In our local community, we see many around us stuck in cycles of poverty, digging themselves in deeper and deeper in today’s culture of debt and convenience. We see this evidenced in all the fast food and title loan establishments we pass on the way to our building. Even within our own congregation, we see many families struggling to make ends meet, taking on the chains of bondage through debt and living outside of their means.

Madison’s Community Classes seek to help empower people to free themselves of these destructive cycles by teaching them useful life skills and the frugality to move forward.

Each class we offer will be free and meet four times in the course of a month on Wednesday nights to learn a skill taught by a member of our congregation. We will keep the class selections evolving based on the needs and participation of our community.

Some class topics we hope to offer starting in August 2017 include:

  • Sewing (Alterations, Upholstery and repurposing)
  • Haircutting (Kids Cuts)
  • Cooking (crockpot meals)
  • Cooking (baby food and purees)
  • Cooking (baking/decorating)
  • Canning
  • Meal planning
  • Couponing
  • Gardening
  • Resume Writing
  • Computer Skills
  • Educational Resources (Coding and other skills you can acquire online)
  • Energy Auditing (How to save money by using less energy in your home)
  • Potty Training
  • Planning with aging parents
  • Will Writing
  • Simple car care
  • Simple Plumbing (Faucet installation, fixing leaks)

We love our Madison community and want to serve you by offering classes that will be the most helpful to you.  Stay tuned for more information and registration for these classes as they become available in August. We look forward to getting to know you and learning alongside you this fall!
