Care Groups

Life can be hard. We're here to help. We want to connect you with the community, resources, and truth you need to take your next step in faith. We have groups for everyone, from marriage help to recovery support to healing from grief or divorce. 

See all options below, and email  or  (marriage ministries & CHAI) with questions.

In-Person Meeting Guidelines During COVID-19

  • Register online in advance of your arrival for the group of your choice or contact ministry leader to let them know you are coming. 
  • Please wear a face covering while in the building and maintain 6 feet of social distancing. 
  • Meeting spaces will be setup with social distancing in mind, all tables and chairs will be sanitized before and after all gatherings. 
  • If you are on campus for small group gathering, you may remove your mask within your meeting space if: 1) You are properly socially distanced; 2) Everyone in the room is comfortable with masks being removed and 3) In the event even one person objects, everyone must keep their masks on.  Our goal is to demonstrate love and care for each person.  Your group leaders will provide more information on this for your group.

 Virtual Groups

We understand that people are in very different places as far as wanting to be in physical proximity to others. If you would prefer a virtual group, we may be offering that, indicate your interest in that option on your registration form or when you reach out to inquiry about getting connected.

Re|Engage

Marriage

We believe that every marriage is meant to be enjoyable, fulfilling and energizing but getting there takes intentional time and effort. So, whether you’d rate your marriage a 2 or an 8, we believe everyone can experience marriage at its best. Through a combination of large group teaching or stories and safe, authentic small group discussion, you’ll connect more deeply with your partner, explore what the Bible has to say about marriage, get practical tools and find hope, healing.  Discover all God designed marriage to be.

Re:Generation

Recovery

At some level we all experience brokenness.

At re:generation, we believe that people can experience growth and new life by working through the healing path God has given us in the Bible. So whether you are struggling to and addiction (drugs, alcohol, pornography) or a stronghold (fear, anxiety, depression, pride, anger, guilt, shame, codependency, eating disorders or other obsessive thoughts), come as you are and find a God who loves you, has a plan for you, and wants to restore you. 

All who are tired, broken or hurting are invited to come find recovery in Jesus Christ in an authentic and safe community.

Compass

Men

Every man struggles to some degree with sexual temptation or sin, including the area of pornography. For some this can develop into an addiction and Compass is a safe and confidential group that is here to help.

This group offers the opportunity for men to better understand themselves as emotional, relational, sexual, and spiritual people. Whether you are married or single, this gathering will help you find healing, wholeness, freedom, and forgiveness through the power of God and His Word.

Monday Night Kids

Kids

While parents attend our Monday night programs and support groups, kids and students through grade 8 have fun as they learn a biblical perspective on life's hurts and disappointments.

Our volunteer staff is a committed group of individuals who are trained with the proper tools and a biblically-based curriculum that discusses topics such as:

  • Building trust
  • Dealing with anger
  • Sad feelings
  • Situations that relate to changes that may have taken place within the family

Our volunteers are dedicated and hopeful, believing that God is the great Healer of all time and it is because of Him that we know great things can happen! He takes the circumstances of our lives, both good and bad, and over time makes them into something beautiful. At Monday Night Kids everyone is valued, loved and supported in their journey at whatever stage they are in.

Monday Night Kids meets most Monday evenings during the fall (September through December) and winter/spring (January through April), taking a break during the summer. Registration required (see below).

Keeping Families Safe
Our desire is to create safe, connected and formative learning communities that kids and students can safely access in-person or online. Health and safety guidelines are tremendously important and have been our focus for the last several months, as well as the current social, emotional, and spiritual needs of your family. Below are the procedures our church has implemented to keep our families and staff safe. Please keep in mind that these procedures may change as needed in order to comply with the recommended guidelines.

KIDS’ LIFE and STUDENT LIFE COVID SAFETY PLAN 

Wellness Checks 

We respectfully ask that your family not attend if they have been exposed to someone with a positive Covid-19 diagnosis within the past 14 days. We are also asking all parents to do a wellness check on their kids/students before bringing them to church. We ask that they not attend if they exhibit any symptoms of illness, including:

  • Fever in the last 24 hours
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headache
  • New loss of taste or smell
  • Sore throat
  • Congestion or runny nose
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Diarrhea

Face Coverings 

We are asking that everyone 2 years and older wear face coverings while in Kids’ and Student Life programming. We understand that this is a touchy subject but wish to follow CDC guidelines to keep our kids and volunteers safe.

Class/ Group Sizes 

In order to ensure the safety of our kids, students, and staff, we have decreased the number of people in our class and Life Group sizes and will do our best to follow current spatial distance guidelines.

Handwashing 

There are hand sanitizer stations throughout the building. Everyone will be asked to either wash their hands or use hand sanitizer upon entering our Kids’ Life and Student Life classes.

Clean Rooms 

Enhanced cleaning procedures will be implemented in classrooms after each group has used the room. We will be sanitizing in between services and alternating toys each service as much as possible.

Snack

We will temporarily stop serving snacks in our Kids’ Life classes.

Sick Children

Children who show any sign of being sick will be removed from the classroom and moved to a designated health room to wait for their parents to pick them up. If anyone displays symptoms or reports testing positive for Covid-19 in your kid’s group, we will contact you immediately.  

Drop Off/Pick Up

We kindly request that only one parent enter the Kids’ Life hallways to drop off and pick up their kids. This will help reduce the traffic in the hallways to help with social distancing.

DivorceCare is led by people who do understand and will help you navigate the challenges of the present, process the past and help you look forward as you rebuild your life.  It can be very healing to tell others what you are going through.
