About Care Groups
Whether you are carrying a significant burden in your life, looking to improve in your relationships or desire to grow personally and spiritually, we have a place for you.  Care Groups help you find, trust and follow God through the challenges while connecting you with others for encouragement and support.
 
  • Learn to trust God and lean on one another.
  • Let go of the past, bitterness and destructive relationships.
  • Form relationships that will make a difference in your spiritual growth.

Care Groups are not professional therapy groups and are led by volunteers.
