Support Groups

ABBA List

ABBA List is simply a communication tool to get you the support contact information you are seeking for yourself or a loved one. There are numerous free resources in the community and in the local churches. It is our goal to search these out and make them more readily available. Abblist.org

Cancer Support Group
Meets every other Tuesday @ 7 pm, Room 260

We invite people battling cancer, families and friends of patients with cancer, and definitely survivors (you guys are in inspiration).  The format is a short devotional followed by some time to get to know each other and prayer. We hope to keep the focus on community and prayer for each other.  Contact Jim Bagley, jimbag8@gmail.com.

Separation & Divorce Support Group
Meets Thursdays @ 7 pm, Room 230

Many in our congregation and community often find themselves in the often unwanted position of being in a difficult marital relationship that is deemed broken beyond repair. Fortunately, we serve a God who is in the business of mending broken people, of taking shattered lives and giving them new direction and purpose. This group is designed for those who want to come together with others seeking that healing for their lives. Facilitator: Brenda Sims, angel33k1@verizon.net.

Grief Support Group
Meets Thursdays @ 7 pm, Room 240

Have you lost someone you love? This group uses the Grief Share faith based curriculum which includes a video, workbook, scripture, journaling and prayer. All adults are invited who have experience a loss. The support group provides help as they continue on their individual grief journey. The objective is to turn mourning into joy. The group facilitator: Bob Burley, burlbobly@yahoo.comLink here for more information about this ministry

Care Givers Support Group
Meets 2nd Wednesday of each month, 7:30 pm, church library

The group’s purpose is to help / support those individuals who find themselves as caregivers, whether in a primary or secondary role. In addition to providing emotional support, the group has discussed financial and legal concerns among various topics.

For most of us, being a caregiver for a loved one causes a full range of emotions to be felt. It can also affect the health and well-being of the caregiver themselves due to the “overwhelming” situation they find themselves in. Having a group of people, that are experiencing the same problems and concerns, is important as it is very easy for the caregiver to feel isolated. Facilitated by Rev. Georgianna Brabban-Johnson, Georgianna@mchsi.com.
