Meets in the Fireside Room at 2:00pm on Tuesdays

This group meets for eight weeks and offers a training program for individuals that are caring for a loved one having a dementing illness. This group focuses on ways to provide a calm and secure enfironment for your loved one. You will also learn ways to manage daily life with the person, find help with caregiving tasks, and learn how to find time to take care of yourself. If you have any questions, see Roy Switzer.



Tuesday nights from 6:30-8:00pm in Room 205  

GriefShare is a support group that provides help and encouragement after the death of a spouse, child, family member, or friend.  You will find it to be a warm, caring environment and you will come to see your group as an “oasis” on your long journey through grief.  There are three key parts to our GriefShare experience:  Video Seminars, Support Groups, and a Workbook.  There are 13 weekly sessions that are all self-contained so you do not have to attend in sequence.  If you have questions you can email Roy Switzer at or Terri Rowe at

Read Through the Bible

 Wednesdays from 6:30-8:00pm in Room 205.

We will be using the phone app by Francis Chan called “Read Scripture” as our guide for the outline of this group. We will read through the Bible together and then each week discuss the stories and encourage each other with the truth we see in them. If you have never read the Bible before or have done so many times, this group will be helpful for you. The Bible is the best selling book every year. Let’s check it out together. Led by Pastor John.
