Real life change happens in the context of relationships. We believe one of the best ways to grow is in connection with other people who will encourage and challenge you.
CHRIST HASN’T JUST CHANGED OUR LIVES, HE’S CHANGING THEM STILL.
“It wasn’t until I was in a Connect Group… that I realized I had been missing out.” -Jeff
We all go through difficult seasons in life, but you don’t have to face it alone. Our Connect Care Ministry offers groups, classes and individual support for you during these times.
One to One Ministry
We all experience challenges in life and times when we could benefit from the support of a caring christian friend. One to One Personal Care Ministers are ready to provide the emotional and spiritual care you need when faced with a crisis or difficulty. It could be experiencing grief, divorce, job loss, chronic or terminal illness, or some other life crisis.
It may be hard for you to feel optimistic about the future right now. If you’ve lost a spouse, child, family member, or friend, you’ve probably found that there are not many people who understand the deep hurt that you feel.
This can be a confusing time when you feel isolated and have many questions about things you’ve never faced before.
“Going to GriefShare feels like having warm arms wrapped around you when you’re shivering.”
GriefShare groups meet weekly to help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life. Each GriefShare session has three distinct elements:
- Video seminar with experts
- Support group discussions with focus
- Personal study and reflection
GriefShare is for people grieving the death of a family member or friend. We understand that there are other losses in life that create feelings of grief. You might be experiencing a job loss, a divorce, estrangement from a child, or even the loss of friends from a move. This grief is real, but is not the kind of grief discussed in GriefShare sessions.
You don’t have to go through it 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.
Divorce Care groups meet weekly to help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life. Each session has two distinct elements:
- A DVD Seminar with experts
- A Support Group with focus
Christ Place Church Marriage Mentors have a passion to empower couples to solve their own issues. Mentoring is unique in that it is effective for couples wanting to enrich their marriage and for couples in crisis. The role of the mentor is to mediate, teach Biblical truth and confront core issues. Mentors provide tools to teach communication skills, problem solving skills, parenting skills, as well as tools that can help couples agree on a family budget, and become comfortable discussing sexual issues. Christ Place Marriage Mentors are committed to maintaining confidentiality and trust in the mentoring relationship, however, it is not a replacement for clinical or pastoral counseling.
