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.
