Multiple times throughout the year we offer a variety of workshops that may be helpful for you. We also offer support groups described below. Upcoming events and groups will be promoted on our Events Page before each starting date.
If you have experienced loss, Grief Share can provide a small group experience for you to find support and encouragement. Grief Share looks at the different stages of loss, how the soul changes through the death of a loved one, and the practical matters of life without that person.
Divorce Care is a small group experience for those who are going through or are healing from a divorce. This video-based format features real-life stories of people who have been through a divorce. An experienced leader facilitates discussion questions and support conversations.
Alcoholics Anonymous (AA)
Only you can decide whether you want to give AA a try. Those who are in AA come because they finally gave up trying to control their drinking. Attendees are quick to find out that many people suffer from the same feelings of guilt, loneliness, and hopelessness. AA meets on Monday evenings at Constance year-round. You can show up anytime.
