Support Group for Family & Friends of those with Mental Illness
The ultimate goal of our support group is to provide a place of safety, compassion, understanding and resources for anyone who has a life that is touched by the challenges of loving someone with mental illness. We are here to listen, encourage and offer hope for a life of thriving in the midst of some great challenges. If you come to our group once or as an ongoing member and you leave feeling less burdened than when you first came in, I will consider that a miraculous accomplishment. We offer the power that comes from God and His Holy Spirit, the love and understanding on a physical, human level from others who have walked in your shoes and may be further along on the journey. We will welcome you with open hearts, open minds and loving arms.
The Group meets on alternating Mondays
From 7 – 8:30 p.m. IN Children’s Ministry Center Room 216

Matthew 11:28-30 “Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”
