Statement of Purpose
The Center for Life Experience grows and nurtures communities of hope and healing. Housed at the First Presbyterian Church, Hays, Kansas, Center for Life experience provides a safe space where people can process grief and life struggles in small group settings. It encourages the efforts of individuals of all backgrounds, including children, to heal themselves and support others through its non-denominational, free-of-charge programs.
The Center of Life Experience's supportive, open communities, where individual life is honored and validated, offer participants opportunities to share their own stories or simply listen as they move forward, fueled by hope on their journey of healing
The Advisory Board for the CFLE consists of six members who work with the Executive Director of the organization for support and best practices in delivering the variety of programs and community engaged activities that advance the mission of the First Presbyterian Church of Hays, and two members of the board who serve from the community at large. Board members serve in rotating classes of two for at least one three year term. The board meets once per month to review the ordinary finances and functions of the CFLE, and also to consider issues of long-term vision for mission.
