Support Groups

These are groups for those who have identified specific needs and want to work on them within a group setting.  The groups are a place for open, honest and supportive interaction with others dealing with the same issues.  

For questions about any of these support groups, please contact Carole Taylor.

We also have 12 STEP GROUPS that meet at our church. Contact Brie Lorey for any questions regarding 12 Step.
