The CDC has reported that up to 50% of Americans will be diagnosed with a mental disorder at some point in their lifetime. We are all human and we all go through internal struggles. It is okay to admit that, to talk about it, and be there for one another. Not matter what you are going through, whether anxiety, depression, trauma, addiction or any other issue, you are not alone.
During this group, members will have the opportunity to share what they are going through and discuss how our spirituality connects with our mental health. Feel free to come and just listen. No one is ever forced to share.
When: TBD - contact Winston if interested
Where: Zoom - please email Winston to RSVP

Mental Health & Spirituality Group
Divorce Support Group
As we wander through the wilderness of divorce, we can feel many conflicting emotions. Grief, confusion, loss, hope and even joy. Even in the best of situations, divorce challenges our view of ourselves and our future. This group will help people who are going through divorce, or are already divorced, stumble through the darkness towards the light of God’s love. You are not alone. People who have not been married but have been in long-term committed relationships are welcome.

Political Stress Support Group
There are so many of us today who experience daily stress from our political climate and being constantly exposed to the turmoil we see in the news and on social media. This are especially difficult times. Many of us are experiencing strained or even totally broken relationships because of politics. With the general election just around the corner, it is especially important right now to have a safe space in which to express our frustrations and find support. If you are having a lot of anxiety about the future of our country, you are not alone. We are in this together.
