Care Groups

Care Groups | Wednesdays, January 6 – May 11, 2016 | 6:30pm – 8:00pm

Care Groups are confidential groups and require your signature on a Statement of Understanding the first time you attend. Materials may be purchased in our bookstore, the Life Resource Center (LRC), unless otherwise noted. Some groups may have limited enrollment (restrictions on size of class) and pre-registration is highly recommended for all Care Groups. Some groups close to new participants after the second week of class. For more information or to pre-register for a Care Group, you may contact Marietta Olson at 858-8624 or mariettao@hoffmantown.org for more information.

Biblical Guidance (Level 1)
Jim Mulvey Room: B212
Biblical Guidance is offering a video series called Care and Discipleship. The videos feature Dr. Jim Newheiser who is a certified Biblical counselor and Pastor in California. Some of the topics that will be discussed during this session are “What is Biblical Counseling?” “General Principles of Biblical Counseling” and “How Do People Change”. This class is open to all who are interested. After watching the videos there will be a time of discussion.
A workbook is available in the Life Resource Center. This is the first introductory level.

Griefshare
Terry and Karen Heames Room: B216
It may seem impossible to feel optimistic about the future. If you have lost a spouse, child, family member or friend, it may seem that people do not understand the deep pain you feel. This can be a confusing time of isolation and painful, difficult questions about unknown challenges and experiences. Each weekly Griefshare session covers a different topic that builds upon the prior week and has three distinct elements: a video seminar by Christian experts with personal stories, group discussion with focus, and a workbook-based personal Bible study and reflection to help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life.
Materials: Available in the LRC

FREEDOM FROM ADDICTIONThis class is for men only.
Ruben Cisneros Room: B218
It takes courage to face an addiction. However, no matter how bad things have become, God offers a way out. Freedom from Addiction is a biblical approach to discovering a whole new life – a life of joy, peace, of wholeness, of sobriety, of self-control, of FREEDOM! It is not self-help or a habilitation program, but it is a paradigm shift. It shifts the focus from oneself to focus on God.
