Support Groups

Support Groups are peer-support communities that offer emotional and practical help.

Support Groups are peer-led support communities. We believe there is a strong correlation between mental, physical and spiritual wellness. Peer support is not professional therapy, but a group of leaders who have a heart for those who are hurting.

Why Participate in a Support Group?

Because it can help you:

  • Feel less lonely, isolated or shamed

  • Reduce distress, depression, anxiety or fatigue

  • Talk openly and honestly about your feelings

  • Improve skills to cope with challenges

  • Gain a sense of empowerment or hope

  • Learn about emotional and practical resources

  • Strengthen or develop faith in Christ

Combat Recovery

For many service members, the war doesn't end when the deployment is over. Your mind, body, and spirit may have been wounded. But wounds can heal.

This group helps you heal from the spiritual and moral wounds of war.

LGBTQ+ for Families

A peer-support community for family members or ally of someone who identifies on the LGBTQ+ spectrum. Instead of choosing sides or debating theology, this group uses clinical data to focus on ways to love one another in ways that strengthen family relationships, encourage personal relationships with Christ, and develop strong emotional and mental health.

Trauma Recovery

Trauma REBOOT is a faith-based course that can help you heal from trauma and painful experiences. This group is led by everyday people who are turning their own pain into purpose by helping others live well in spite of trauma.
