Support Group Begins

divorcecare-copy-2DivorceCare, a weekly support group will begin meeting this Thursday, from 6:30 – 8:30pm here at the church, Faith Community Church 401 Stone Street, Beaver Dam WI.   It is designed so that people can begin attending on any week.

Topics include “Facing My Anger”, “Facing My Loneliness”, “New Relationships”, “KidCare”, and “Forgiveness”.

During the first 30–40 minutes of the meeting, each DivorceCare group watches a video seminar featuring top experts on divorce and recovery subjects. These videos are produced in an interesting-to-watch television magazine format featuring expert interviews, real-life case studies and on-location video. After viewing the video, DivorceCare group participants spend time as a support group, discussing what was presented in that week’s video seminar and what is going on in the lives of group members.

Cancer Support Group

We have finally located a permanent meeting place for our support group at the HIGHER GROUNDS COFFEE SHOP, 7156 E Plaza Drive, Beaver Dam WI.  We will be meeting on the SECOND & FOURTH TUESDAYS of each month.

TLC is a group of people who have had a diagnosis of cancer or who have a family member or friend who has had a diagnosis of cancer. We share together the often difficult  process of coping with the diagnosis and treatment of cancer.  Our basic purpose is to support each other spiritually and emotionally so that we can live each day to its fullest.

TLC is not a medical clinic, a hospice program, or a group of experts who offer advice on the treatment of   cancer. We are a group of people who are eager to listen, to share our own struggles and joys and to pray for each other.  This is a community based group.

The topics we use for the group are in three categories:

  • Living with Strong Feelings
  • Challenges to Faith
  • Changing Perspectives

The purpose of TLC is to provide emotional and spiritual support to families living with cancer.  OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

 

Prayer Meeting
