Winter Semester Care Groups: January 10 – May 9, 2018.
Wednesdays | 6:30pm – 8:00pm

The purpose of Hoffmantown Care Groups is to come alongside those who are hurting to provide hope, encouragement, the love of Christ, and strategies to help participants heal and grow. The bible verse most used by the Care Groups is II Corinthians 1:3-4, “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction so that we will be able to comfort those who are in any affliction with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.”

Confidentiality is a cornerstone of Care Groups, and participants are asked to read and sign a Statement of Understanding, which outlines expectation of participants to ensure a safe classroom environment conducive to care, support and healing.

There is no charge for the Care Groups, but most have companion workbooks/materials available for purchase at a nominal fee. Materials may be purchased in the 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 Group. Other groups are open groups and can be joined at any time during a semester.

For more information or to pre-register for a Care Group, contact the Equipping Ministries at 858-8624 or equip@hoffmantown.org.


Winter Semester Care Groups

“GriefShare” | Terry & Karen Heames, Dave & Betty Scott and Debbie McNeil |6:30-8pm | January 10th-May 9th | 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: Workbook, available in the bookstore.


“Divorce Care” (Men ONLY) | Ron Marler | 6:30-8pm | January 10th- May 9th | B214
Most people will say that separation and divorce are the most painful, stressful experiences they have ever faced. This can be a confusing time of isolation and painful, difficult questions about unknown challenges and experiences. Each weekly “DivorceCare” 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: Workbook is available in the bookstore.
