Our Support Groups Ministry provides a place where people can experience the presence and power of God to heal deep wounds, chart new directions, and find hope and healing.
In groups like these, many people have learned new and productive ways to think about their problems and opportunities. They have developed strong friendships with people who understand because they have been there. Members find forgiveness, peace, and strength they never knew existed. The encouragement received from each other is combined with clear teaching from God’s Word to help people take steps in their recovery journey. These groups are entirely confidential.
If you have any questions please contact Jo Roscoe.
Transform Mental Health Support Group
Tuesdays, 7:00 PM, beginning August 20
1 in 5 adults experience mental health issues each year making it imperative that, as a church, we remove any stigma and encourage open communication about these struggles. While individual strugglers turn to doctors and therapists for support, the toll on family members often goes unsupported. Family Transform group provides an opportunity for family members of those living with mental health difficulties to find acceptance and understanding while learning useful skills. With a Christ-centered focus, families can learn how to filter difficulties through God’s grace and implement practical tools to regain their lives and rebuild their families. If you are the child, parent, or spouse of someone impacted by mental health challenges, we invite you to join us.
For more information, contact Karen Baldwin.
