Support Groups

At Christ Church, we offer a variety of support groups for those who are going through some of life’s toughest situations including divorce, cancer, and grief. Explore these support group opportunities to learn more and how to begin to heal.


No one should face pain alone. If you or someone you love is struggling with sadness and grief, we would like to connect you with a care companion or support group.

1-to-1 Care Ministry offers someone to talk to, pray with and strengthen you in your grief. We have trained volunteers who would like to provide care. Meeting together is casual and customized based on your schedule.

Grief Support Groups If you or someone you love is struggling with the loss of a loved one, we offer support groups throughout the year.

NEXT GRIEF GROUP BEGINS SEPT 11th 7-8:30 p.m. @Lake Forest Campus

Contact: griefsupport@christchurchil.org


 Second Tuesday of each month, 7:00-8:30 p.m.
Contact Carmen Everding at everdingc@gmail.com or 847-571-7924.

This group is a safe and secure environment for cancer survivors and loved ones to share their personal journey with cancer at their own pace. You can just drop in anytime. No registration required.

While you do not need to hold to biblical worldview to attend, the curriculum used is based on truths and hope offered in the Bible.

Our groups are not structured for individual counseling  needs but rather meaningful support for every member as a group. We do not provide medical expertise nor financial assistance.

Post Abortive Bible Study

You’ve been silently regretful, feeling alone and in pain. However, you are NOT alone. One in four women have had a past abortion. Surrendering the Secret is a post-abortive Bible study which provides a safe and confidential place for women to heal whether your abortion was recent or decades ago. Come find freedom and healing through God’s grace. Join us in the journey of forgiveness and healing in a study offered each year.

Adoptive Families SUPPORT

Sequoia Families provide education, resources, reassurance and lots of love to all adoptive families in the Chicago suburban area, domestic or international, young or old, no matter what religion or what church you attend. In person meetings, and online support in groups and one-on-one sessions. Speaker presentations offered periodically throughout the year.

Sequoia Families name comes from the Sequoia National Forest. Sequoia trees grow up to 300 ft. Tall, yet they have very shallow root systems going down only 6-12 inches. In order to survive, each tree’s roots spread and intertwine with the others providing strength and support. So too, adoptive families roots are shallow and in order to grow strong, need the help of each other.
