    Chronic Illness Support Group
    Tuesdays @ 7 PM

    Are you suffering? Battling cancer? Combating chronic illness? Dealing with chronic pain? Searching for others with which to share the journey? Join our chronic illness group and connect with others on a similar journey. You’ll find a place of honest dialogue and support as we seek the gifts of God often hidden in pain. This is a group for those who need hope, have hope, or want to offer hope to others who are battling health issues.

    What do we do when suffering hits us broadside? How do we manage to find hope in the darkness of disease? Joni Eareckson Tada pens regarding suffering, “It is a honed art, as well as a spiritual discipline, to be able to step back from the details and see how our own stories are woven into a much bigger one… God’s story.”

    Unending Love
    The healing journey after the loss of a child

    The loss of a child, grandchild, or sibling is unlike any other. We’ll talk about the real struggles of the journey with all of the “successes and set backs” and our discussion topics will vary from meeting to meeting. While we are a sharing group, there’s never any pressure or expectation for anyone to talk. Sometimes we can’t and sometimes we need to just listen. Each person, including couples, will grieve and heal differently because of their own life experiences along with the nature of their relationship with their loved one. While this is an individualized journey, we can take the journey together. At times like these it can be hard to feel God’s presence but we don’t have to be on this journey alone — we will walk together.
