SUPPORT & CARE
Support Groups and ways to serve as a Caregiver
Divorce takes a toll on us: financially, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. Divorce Recovery is a 10-week class for anyone struggling in the midst or aftermath of a divorce. Class topics include combating stigma and negative self-talk, healthy versus unhealthy coping skills, grieving the death of a relationship, taking responsibility for your future, and creating & establishing a supportive community. Divorce Recovery will be offered on Sundays beginning Sept 22, 3:30-5:30 PM. REGISTER NOW. Cost is $75.
MONDAY GRIEF SUPPORT
Are you suffering after the death of someone close to you? Grief is emotionally and physically painful. The pain is so deep that it can become overwhelming. Cokesbury’s Grief Support Group meetings are a place for you to rest and restore. This group uses a curriculum from Griefshare to work through the process of grieving. You are invited to join us each Monday evening from 6:30 – 8:00 in Room 200 on the North Campus. A new session of Griefshare begins on August 19.

Our Vision: We envision empowered single-parent families thriving through supportive community and tools of growth.
What is it? Hope Initiative is a ministry that comes alongside single-parent families. Through it, families have an opportunity to draw closer to Jesus, to build up a support system, to receive a delicious meal, and to receive tutoring for students. We meet on Tuesday evenings from 5:45-7:45 pm during the school year.
How to enroll: Families may join Hope Initiative at the start of a new semester by emailing Katie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The goal of the Congregational Care ministry is to provide a caring Christian community where every person can find strength and support when they are hurting. We encourage all of you to find ways to care for those in your small groups or in your community. Telephone calls, cards, prayers, and meals send a message of caring and compassion. If you are in need of care, or if you wish to volunteer for one of our care teams, please email Shirley Gross or call 865-246-0448.
If you are interested in either becoming a Stephen Minister or would like to request one to walk alongside you during a difficult time, please email Shirley Gross or at 246-0448.
