Caregivers Support Group
If you help care for another adult, whether or not that person lives in your home, in a nursing home, or in their own home, you are a caregiver. Caregiving for a loved one can leave you frustrated and angry at times. That’s normal -- but you don’t have to go through it alone.
We invite you to join us for our monthly Caregivers Support Group which meets the 1st Monday of every month, from 2-3:30 pm in the Parlor. For more information, please click here.
Faith Community occasionally partners with the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) to offer different care groups. All classes are FREE and open to the public. Each class also includes a free dinner and childcare.
NOTE: Currently we are not offering NAMI Family & Friends classes. Please check back later for updates regarding when new classes will be scheduled.
This 6-week class will educate parents and family caregivers of children and teens who are experiencing symptoms of a mental illness or who have already been diagnosed. The class will help you gain an understanding of current treatments and public resources, and teach you how to manage crises, communicate effectively, and advocate for your child's rights at school and in health-care settings. NAMI Basics is offered in a group setting so you can connect with other people dealing with similar issues.
The class will meet for six weeks on Tuesdays, January 14 - February 18 from 6:00-8:30 pm. There is an optional free dinner available before the class, and free childcare is available during the class. For more more details and registration information, please visit our NAMI Basics event page.
NAMI Family to Family
Do you have a loved one who is affected by anxiety or depression? Do you struggle with communicating with them or how best to support them without enabling them?

The class will meet for twelve weeks on Tuesdays, January 14 - March 31 from 6:00-8:30 pm. There is an optional free dinner available before the class, and free childcare is available during the class. For more more details and registration information, please contact Tara at .
