Caregiver Support Group

Alternate Tuesday Evenings beginning OCT 24 at 7pm
Lake Forest Campus

The Caregiver Support Group will begin using Mary Tutterow’s book The Heart of the Caregiver as a springboard for our interaction.

Tired? Lonely? Overwhelmed? Caring for a loved one is difficult work. It can often leave a strong person feeling overwhelmed and stressed. If that’s you, then The Heart of the Caregiver is just the respite you need. Mary Tutterow, fellow caregiver and advocate, invites you to seek God’s life-transforming love through Scripture each day. Allow the Holy Spirit to encourage you as you live out God’s call to love others through your service to them. Move from overwhelmed to overjoyed.

Join us every other Tuesday from 7:00-8:30 pm in A108 at Christ Church, Lake Forest.

First meeting will be October 24. Books will be available that night.
For questions contact: Beth Whartnaby at whartnabybb@me.com

Grief Group

If you are going through a difficult trial such as death loss, family/relationship loss, shattered dreams, life transitions, or other hard life situations, we can connect you with a care companion or a support group.

If you are struggling with the death of a loved one, Grief Support Groups are offered during the year, along with Hope for the Holidays.

Small Group Women's Bible Study

Wednesdays, 9:30-11am
Starting September 13
Lake Forest Campus

Of the two books of the Bible named after women, one was a Jewish girl who married a prominent Gentile (Esther and King Ahasuerus) and the other was a Gentile woman who married a prominent Hebrew (Ruth and Boaz). Both women were part of God’s redemptive history: He used Esther to save His people from physical destruction and He used Ruth as an important genealogical link in the messianic line, first to David, and ultimately to Christ.

Spiritual Direction

Susan Neaman: sneaman@christchurchil.org

Spiritual Direction can be life-giving and transforming as one begins to sense where God is leading, hovering, teaching, healing and offering His love. Listening to the leading of the Holy Spirit includes moments of savoring the joys in life or sifting through the hard life trials we experience. This unique time with a Spiritual Director is confidential and helps one draw closer to the Lord in whatever situation has arisen. Christ Church offers and initial meeting with a certified Spiritual Director at no charge, at which point you can decide if you’d like to pursue Spiritual Direction on a monthly basis. Ongoing cost details would be discussed at your first session.
