Our Foundation

The passion of the River of Life Care Ministry group is to reach out to those in our church and surrounding communities who are hurting and searching for God’s unconditional love and undeserving grace. Our goal is to join together to find understanding and to receive God’s counsel and healing touch in our lives.

DivorceCare

DivorceCare is a special weekly seminar and support group for people who are experiencing separation or divorce. Come to where you can be around people who understand what you are feeling and will be able to offer hope and encouragement. It’s a place where you can receive valuable information about ways to heal from the hurt of divorce. DivorceCare meets weekly on Thursday nights at 6:45-8:30 p.m. from September to May. Each week there is a DVD seminar combined with group discussion and sharing. The topics are followed as stated in the brochure and on the DivorceCare website. We take two weeks per topic to take more time to apply what was learned in the DVD. We have found this method to be very effective. We welcome you to begin attending DivorceCare at any time. We believe every topic is important no matter where you are in your journey of recovery. Child care is provided.

DivorceCare offers a free daily email for real encouragement “One Day at a Time.” Sign up hereWant more information about the DivorceCare program? Click the button below!

Celebrate Recovery

The purpose of Celebrate Recovery is to celebrate God’s healing power in our lives through the 12 Steps and 8 Recovery Principles. This experience allows us to ‘be changed.’ We open the door by sharing our experiences, strengths, and hopes with one another. In addition, we become willing to accept God’s grace in solving our lives’ problems. By working and applying these Biblical principles, we begin to grow spiritually. We become free from our compulsive, addictive, and dysfunctional behaviors. This freedom creates peace, serenity, joy, and most importantly: a stronger personal relationship with God and others. As we progress through this program we discover our personal, loving, and forgiving Higher Power: Jesus Christ.

Thursday Night Format:

  • 6-6:45 p.m. – Soup Dinner (freewill donation)
  • 6:45-7:30 p.m. – Open Group session including worship, followed by teaching or testimony,  and a guest speaker or a video
  • 7:30-8:30 p.m. – Small Groups (all small groups are gender specific)
