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

IMPORTANT SCHEDULING NOTE

Due to holiday scheduling conflicts, this group's normal will meeting times/day will be different for December and January:

  • December - Group meets on Monday, December 5 from 1-2:30 pm (instead of the normal 2-3:30 pm meeting time)
  • January - Group will meet from 2-3:30 pm on Monday, January 9 (instead of the normal first Monday schedule on January 2)
  • February - We will resume our normal 1st Monday schedule and 2-3:30 pm meeting time again on Monday, February 6

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

 

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 .

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? Family to Family is a 12-week care group for family members who have a loved one experiencing or suspected of having a mental health disorder.  

NAMI Basics

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.

NAMI Family & Friends

NAMI Family & Friends is a 4-hour Informational Seminar that informs and supports people who have loved ones suffering from anxiety or other mental health conditions. Participants learn about diagnoses, treatment, recovery, communication strategies, crisis preparation and NAMI resources.
