Renewed Hope

We are all struggling with something in our lives. It may be worry, stress, anxiety, a major life transition, or a mental health diagnosis. You may have been or are currently in therapy, a support group, or talking to family and friends. We believe that God is a God of healing and He has a plan for us to live in joy. This group offers

an added support with a different approach based on what God has to say about our struggles. There are two parts to each group meeting: 1) Education about what God has to say about our specific problems. 2) Each member can talk about what they are going through and get support and prayer. Children do not attend.
