HOPE FOR HURTING HEARTS GROUPS

(HOPE GROUPS)

It's OK to not be OK. Life can be overwhelming and push us beyond our limits. Even though life is hard, it can be different. It can get better with Christ and community. Our weekly, on-campus Hope Groups will help you learn and apply Biblical principles to cope with and address specific relationships, struggles, hurts, hang-ups and habits.

Grace Kids Care for children ages 6 weeks through 5th grade is available for on campus participants. Registration is required and space is limited in each group.

Most people will tell you that separation and divorce are the most painful and stressful experiences they've ever faced. It's a confusing time when you feel isolated and have lots of questions about issues you've never faced before but you can find comfort and healing in Jesus Christ. The Divorce Recovery group meets weekly to help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life. Our hope is that you'll quickly discover how helpful it is to be around others who understand how you feel.  The next group begins January 23, 2023 and will meet at First Baptist Church of La Vernia.

Grief Recovery is a weekly seminar/support group for people who are grieving the loss of someone close...it's a place where you can be around people who understand how you feel and who can relate to the pain of your loss.  Using God's Word as foundation, we connect people to authentic community, helping them avoid the isolation of "toughing it out," postponing their grief, or minimizing their pain in an effort to cope with their sorrow.  Here you will be surrounded by others who know exactly what you are going through and can help you begin to rebuild your life.  The next group begins January 23, 2023 and will meet at First Baptist Church of La Vernia.

Hope Group - Abortion Recovery (002).jpg

Many women hide the secret of abortion deep in their hearts and they are suffering severe consequences.  If you feel you have never completely healed or recovered from an abortion experience, or that a past abortion may be affecting your current quality of life, then join us for Surrendering the Secret.

This small group study offers an 8-step biblical healing process modeled by women who have been where you are.  Surrendering the Secret is designed to bring women together who understand the need for seeking peace with the past and desire a better understanding of God's plan for making the most painful losses of our past work for His glory! The next group begins in January 2023.
