Buckner Children and Family Services 1014 S High St, Longview, TX

The Family Collective

South Spring Baptist Church 17002 US-69, Tyler, TX

2 Timothy 1:7 states God gave us a spirit not of fear, but of power and love and self-control. Dr. Purvis once said: “Play disarms fear, builds connectedness, and teaches social skills and competencies for life.” Many of our children from hard places don’t know how to play. Keely Burks, owner of Restore Family Counseling, licensed professional counselor, TBRI practitioner and adoptive mom, is going to lead our adult session. Our teen, elementary and toddler groups will be led by other local therapist. Our certified babysitters serve those in the nursery. We want to empower your families with some tools to continue to build connection and disarm fear through the power of play.

Location- South Spring Baptist Church 17002 Hwy 69 in Tyler.
Dinner will be served from 5:30p - 6p.
Sessions will run from 6:00p - 7p.
