Support Groups at WRBC

Walnut Ridge is committed to serving alongside individuals during life’s many twists and turns. Many of us find ourselves in a place or situation that we did not intend. If you need help getting back on track or just need someone who understands what you’re facing, you’ll find it in one of the WRBC Support Groups.

Celebrate Recovery

Celebrate Recovery is a biblical and balanced program that helps us overcome our hurts, hang-ups, and habits.  It is based on the actual words of Jesus rather than psychological theory. Thursdays @ 6:30pm. A key ingredient for Celebrate Recovery is Step Studies which utilize the 12 Steps and the Eight Principles based on the teachings of Jesus in the Beatitudes. Working through the 12 Steps in a gender-specific Step Study group is a process of dealing with one’s own hurts, habits, and hang-ups. Step Study groups meet on a night other than Thursday. It generally takes anywhere from several months up to one year to complete a Step Study.

Divorce Care

No one enters a marriage thinking that it won’t last. A failed marriage is tough to handle alone. Divorce Care is designed to help find healing for the hurt of separation and divorce by discovering with others a friendly, caring group of people to walk alongside with and who understand what you are going through. You’ll gain access to valuable resources to help deal with the pain of the past and to help find hope and restoration for rebuilding your future.

Grief Support

Find help and healing after the loss of a loved one.  The members of the Grief Support group will walk alongside you through one of life’s most difficult experiences. You don’t have to go through the grieving process alone.

Thursdays @ 7:00pm

Coping With Hope

Coping with Hope is for people whose life has been affected by cancer.  As they feel comfortable in doing so, members of our support group share their personal experiences and they offer one another emotional and moral support.

You will find our support group to be warm and friendly and we will help you learn how to cope better and feel less isolated as you make friends with our members who have survived their journey with cancer.

First Thursday each month @ 7:00pm
