If we are afflicted, it is for your comfort and salvation; and if we are comforted, it is for your comfort … II Corinthians 1:6
Christ Covenant Church offers three different and valuable support groups for people who want to find a way to cope with the pain or isolation they are experiencing because of life changing events. Each of these groups is open to our congregation and to our community. These groups meet every Monday night beginning September 9. We share a wonderful community dinner together prior to meeting in our support groups. If you know someone who may benefit by joining one of these groups, please invite them to contact Mary Jo Culver at 704-814-1039 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Below are the various support groups we offer:
GriefShare is a special weekly seminar and support group designed to help you rebuild your life after losing a loved one. Our group is led by caring people who have experienced grief and want to help you through the difficult days ahead. If you’ve lost a spouse, child, family member, or friend, you may encounter few people who understand the deep hurt you feel. At GriefShare you will find both community and comfort along with answers to questions you have never needed to ask before.
DivorceCare for both Men & Women are friendly, caring groups of people who will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences. Don’t go through separation or divorce alone. Most people will tell you that separation and divorce are the most painful and stressful experiences they’ve ever faced. It’s a confusing time when you feel isolated and have lots of questions about issues you’ve never faced before.
Caregivers Support is for people who serve as the caregiver in any capacity. If this includes you, then you know the challenges you face, how you may often feel alone, how you see the changes in your loved one, and how you may experience feelings of helplessness. We meet weekly, use the book Ambushed by Grace by Shelly Beach to focus our discussions, and talk about our experiences.
