Support Groups

Life is full of joy, but we know that it also has its share of hurts. At Cornerstone Lutheran Church, we have a heart for loving people through their pain, whether they are in our church or our community. Hope can be found in support groups like GriefShare, DivorceCare for Kids (DC4K), CLC Cancer Ministry, Caregivers, Employment needs, or for those with Disabilities. Find out more, below.

Support Groups

  • GriefShare

    If you’ve lost a spouse, child, parent, or friend, it can be a confusing time—you may feel isolated and have many questions about things you’ve never faced before. Don’t go through it alone. Join a caring group of people that will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences. The GriefShare recovery support group meets for 13 weeks and will help you face these challenges so you can move toward rebuilding your life.
