            IN PERSON GROUP. Caregivers Group is a place where parents and guardians can join in fellowship to find support, understanding, and practical examination of the unique challenges faced while raising children with disabilities and medical complexities. Once a week we will meet and discuss a different subject we face while raising our extraordinary children. Topics covered will include fear and anxiety, anger, resilience, and isolation. Together we will examine how we experience each of these themes, how they affect our families, and what we can do about it. But really, who? Whether you are a grandparent caring for a 15-year-old with mild Autism, the parent of a 6-year-old with pediatric cancer, or the guardian of a 28-year-old with a severe intellectual disability, all are welcome to come and find support.

The Bible is our text and the Holy Spirit is our guide and teacher as we study the book of Genesis; considering Moses as the author, his audience of Israelites in the wilderness, what God's Word said to them, and how that Word affects us today as husbands, father, neighbors, co-workers and brothers in Christ. All adult men are welcome and encouraged to take a few moments each Saturday seeking an intimate relationship with God and other men through His Word. We meet Saturday mornings at 7:00 AM for fellowship, with the study going from 7:30 AM until 9:00 AM. Join us as we seek His Face.
