Support Groups

At Mountain Life Church, we recognize that lifestyles, life stages and circumstances affect the health and well-being of individuals and their families. Our desire is to show the love of Christ to others in the way we care for each other. Connecting with others dealing with similar circumstances through support groups can ease your burdens.

To sign up for a group, contact the group leader. If you have questions, would like help finding care for your current situation or would like to join Mountain Life’s Care Team, contact Gail Iverson, Director of Care Ministry.

DivorceCare for Kids (DC4K)

Wednesday evenings, beginning January 27, 6:45 – 8:30 pm for 13 weeks
Location: Mountain Life Church | Room 106
Contact: Gail Iverson.

DC4K is a special group for children ages 5-12 to find help and healing from the pain of a divorce in the family. At our weekly DC4K group, kids make friends with other kids who understand what it feels like when parents get divorced. The group combines games, crafts, activities, music and DVD dramas to create a fun atmosphere where children feel accepted. A parent is encouraged to attend the DivorceCare for adults at the same time, but it is not required.
The team would welcome a male role model on the team.
