Safe Harbor Support Groups

Safe Harbor is a Christ-centered support group ministry that occurs twice a year over a 12-week period. Groups meet to support each other in sharing common life experiences. Classes are led by trained facilitators who are non-professionals reaching out to find hope, help, and healing for those in need. The only cost is the book cost. 

  • Do you desire to stop negative cycles that are evident in relationship with others?
  • Do you hold on to the past and let those experiences define you?
  • Is there a lack of boundaries in your life, and do you have a hard time saying "no?"
  • Is there something in your life you want to change because it hurts yourself or others?

If these questions or others like it are something you have asked yourself; join us at Safe Harbor and see if a group is right for you.

Safe Harbor Classes will resume in the Fall of 2017

 

If you need childcare, please register above. The church pays for our childcare workers, so if at some point you no longer need childcare, please let us know so we can adjust our childcare staff ratios and be good stewards of our church funds.

 
 

 

FAQs about Support Groups

1. What is Safe Harbor?

Safe Harbor is a Christ-Centered support group ministry that occurs twice a year in September and January. Classes range from 7 weeks to 14 weeks. Groups are led by lay trained facilitators who desire to help those in need find hope, help, and healing.

2. Is Safe Harbor for me?

3. Is Safe Harbor Confidential?

Yes. Our facilitators strive to create a safe environment of trust and respect. We ask that things shared in group remain in the group. There is freedom from judgment and being "fixed." What you share and how much you share is up to you.

4. What do groups look like?

You will meet in the assigned classroom for your group where the facilitator will initiate the lesson for the week and then the group will have open discussion based on the topic/lesson from the week's workbook assignments or that evenings topic (workbooks vary by class). Some classes have mandatory workbooks, while others are optional as an additional aid outside the group meeting time.

5. Will I get anything out of Safe Harbor?

We are confident you will benefit from attending; however how much and to what extent is up to you. Keep in mind that you get what you give. The work is up to you and how much you choose to grow and are willing to invest.
