Support & Recovery

 
Come and experience the goodness of God found in shared sorrow and joy, shared pain and gain. 

We all need His healing grace to transform the wounded parts of our lives.

These groups give us an opportunity to journey alongside one another…masks down, real and authentic. God tells us He is close to the brokenhearted…may we become healing reminders of His love as we journey together.  No matter what your hurt, hang-up, struggle, or loss there is a place for you.  You are deeply loved!

Am I Hurting?

Take a listen to Brian’s story from his participation in Support Groups at College Church. You may discover, like he did, the way that healing can take place through authentic relationships.
