Good Shepherd has several support groups available to help you in times of need.
L.I.F.E. Recovery Support Groups (Sexual Addiction Recovery)
L.I.F.E. Recovery International is a Christ-centered support group ministry whose mission is to encourage, empower, and equip God’s people to live every day in sexual integrity. The L.I.F.E. program uses workbooks, presentations, and a support group structure to those who want freedom from sexually compulsive behaviors such as pornography, unfaithfulness or sexual addiction.
At Good Shepherd, there are two L.I.F.E. Recovery Support Groups:
- MEN who struggle with sexually compulsive behaviors.
- WOMEN who have a spouse struggling with sexually compulsive behaviors.
Both groups are a safe and confidential environment and offer a journey toward sobriety and healing. Meeting times and locations are not published.
For more information, please send us an email.
DivorceCare (Adults and Kids)
DivorceCare is a biblical, Christ-centered divorce support group ministry. Group members apply biblical principles as they heal from the hurt of separation and divorce. Using videos and workbooks, participants will discover how the gospel brings hope and restoration.
DivorceCare for Kids (DC4K) is a program that complements the adult support group, helping single parents and their children find biblical, Christ-centered healing.
