You are not alone in your medical journey. There are groups for those who are currently in the middle of health concerns or who have already been through them.
We offer two ongoing support groups (one for men and one for women) on Thursdays at Care Night for those affected by cancer.
1st Thursdays | 5:30-7 pm | Room B153
The Men's Cancer Support Group is a monthly ministry for men in all stages of cancer treatment. This ministry offers men emotional and spiritual support. This group is led by Congregational Care Minister David Contag.
4th Thursdays | 5:30-7 pm | Room B153
The Women's Cancer Prayer Support Group, or Glow Girls (God Loving Optimistic Women), is a monthly ministry for women who are currently experiencing cancer treatment or learning to adjust to life after treatment. The ministry offers women of all ages prayerful comfort, encouragement, support and the compassion of new friendships. God walks with us as we journey through cancer and we feel this presence as we travel through both dark valleys and bright meadows. This group is led by Congregational Care Minister Sharon Lovell.
Childcare is available for these classes. If you are interested in making a childcare reservation, please do so here.

Our next meeting will be Thursday, February 28th with Guest Speaker, Leslie Martin
Leslie Martin, CNTP (Certified Nutrition Therapy Practitioner) is a member of the LAGKC and will be speaking to us at our February 28, 2019 monthly support meeting. Leslie will speak to us about an hour, along with Q&A, on general nutrition with information on specific Lyme related issues such as inflammatory conditions, energy, mental health concerns, digestive issues and detoxification. We will also learn the sourcing of food and why we should be including and avoiding certain foods in our meals. We look forward to hearing from Leslie as we all learn new things together. You won’t want to miss it! Hope to see you there!
