Family-to-Family is a FREE seven-week course taught by NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness). The class will meet weekly at Stepping Forward on Tuesdays at 6:30 – 9:00 pm from September 13 – October 25. There is an optional free dinner available before the class at 6:00 pm, and free childcare is available during the class.
The Family-to-Family class is an evidenced-based, education program which provides support to family members and friends of individuals who are living with mental illness. Classes are taught by trained family members and graduates of the program. In addition to learning about treatment strategies, and how to more effectively communicate with loved ones, many participants also find the emotional support they receive crucial during their loved ones’ times of illness and stress.

Cancer Support Group
Cancer. The word strikes fear in our hearts. Do you or someone you love have cancer? Our Cancer Support Group meets every third Monday from 1 - 2:30 pm* and is led by a cancer survivor.
This group is for those diagnosed with cancer and their family/friends and focuses on practical help, cancer information, and connecting with God during this difficult time. We also invite cancer survivors to attend to share your story with those just beginning the journey through this dark valley. Make your cancer experience count by using your experience to help others find hope. Masks are encouraged to help protect each other. Please contact Ann Copeland at
for more information or with questions.
Caregivers Support Group
NOTE: Due to the July 4th holiday on Monday, the group will meet the following day on Tuesday, July 5. We will resume our normal first Monday schedule again on Monday, August 1.
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.
Grief Support Group
Christian Yoga Classes
Join us every Monday from 12-1 pm in the Christian Living Center (CLC) for Christian Yoga. This class incorporates scripture, prayer and praise into the exercise routine and helps draw the participant into a personal encounter with Jesus Christ. Gentle movement exercises will consist of standing and chair exercises; floor exercises with mat are optional. Yoga has been shown to improve overall health, decrease stress/anxiety, and reduce pain to help you get in shape and glorify God through Mind, Body and Spirit!
This will be a combined floor/chair exercise class so you can do yoga exercises on your own yoga mat or in a chair (available). Cost is $5 per class. Masks are optional for this class. For more information, please contact Ann at .
