This confidential group provides a safe place where women can share their stories in a deep and meaningful way. By creating and maintaining trust with each other, we can heal more deeply and support each other in taking the next step in getting the help needed. Trained volunteer leaders are leading this group and will be using the book Mending the Soul: Understanding and Healing Abuse, by Steven R. Tracy. This book is recommended, but not required.

Most of us grew up in churches where we could not be out loud about what was really happening in our lives. At Open Door, we believe the grace of God is big enough to handle our darkness, our pain and our addictions. Firstlight is for anyone who is struggling with an addiction and needs help. Through the wisdom of the Twelve Steps and the Story of God found in the Scriptures, we offer a place to have safe and confidential discussions so that you can move towards healing, wholeness and healthy patterns of living. The women's group meets through May 14; the men will continue to meet through the summer.
We currently have a need for female leaders. Contact Bob.
A supportive group for those who have lost someone dear. Videos and small group discussions include the grief process; the flood of emotion: shock, anger, denial, blame, regret and feeling out of control; finding freedom in forgiveness and healing in Christ.

The Widows Well
Historically, a well has been a place where women have gathered in community and could draw not only water but encouragement from one another. Here, widows can come together in a safe and nurturing environment that will allow them to continue to grow and learn in this season of life. It’s a place where women can say the name of their late husband and feel that others understand what it feels like to lose someone so close. This group meets offsite.
