Support Communities

(Previously known as Monday Night Rhythm)

Resume Monday, February 24 | 6:30PM

We believe that support and healing happen best within community – that God calls us to bear one another’s burdens. We recognize that we all face seasons of struggle, pain, and uncertainty in life where it is helpful to walk with others who are currently where you are or have been through what you are facing. Support communities offer space to be reminded that we are not alone and there is a greater hope we can cling to in the midst of our uncertainty.

The support communities meeting this semester are listed below. All groups will meet together for a time of worship at 6:30PM in the Theater. Groups will then move to their designated spaces.

divorcecare

12 Weeks

DivorceCare is a caring group of people who will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences. This support group meets weekly and covers topics essential to help you find healing from divorce and separation. Drop-ins are welcome. Childcare available.

RE:GENERATION

Ongoing

Re:generation is a 12-step discipleship journey leading to recovery. By working through these Biblical steps within an authentic community, people have found freedom from substance abuse, codependency, pornography, depression, fear, control, and many other personal struggles. We believe that anyone can experience new life and freedom by working through steps of healing given to us by God through the Bible. All who are tired, broken, or hurting are invited to come find recovery in Jesus Christ. Re:generation meets weekly with a large group time of either teaching or a personal testimony followed by a time of discussion in a small group format.

wraparound: Foster together

12 Weeks

Wrap Around invites you to “Foster Together,” a weekly support gathering for foster families. Foster parenting is hard, but it doesn’t have to be lonely. So join us on Monday nights beginning February 24 for honest conversation, prayer, fun, laughter and encouragement from other parents who have “been there”. Every week we walk through veteran foster parent Pam Parrish’s Battle-Weary Parents: A Scripture Based Guide for Parenting in the Trenches, while our kids enjoy a fun childcare experience at no cost to parents. For more information, email Carla Hendricks – [email protected].

shamefull

12 Weeks

If you want to discover where your joy has gone, why your relationships do not work, and why you feel disconnected from the image of God within you, we suggest taking a look at shame. Shame causes immeasurable destruction to humanity, but is also a pathway to a life of meaning. This is the Shame-Full Journey: to answer, through courage and wisdom, the invitation shame offers us to become more fully who we are so we can love the people we are made to love. Through this process, you will learn more about the presence of shame in your life, the impact it has had on you and your relationships and then begin to find the way forward, towards a healthier, deeper connection to yourself, God and others. This 12-week group is a mix of teaching and group experience led by Luke Brasel, a marriage and family therapist, writer and speaker. 

solo parent society

Solo Parent Society is a weekly gathering created for single moms and dads. During this time you will meet other single parents, create authentic community, support one another, and find simple, yet practical, steps to find peace through our resources. If you are a single parent and looking for support and encouragement, you belong here! Launching all new topics and format this season.

priority parenting
