This group is for those grieving the loss of a loved one. It is primarily for adults, but materials are available for teens and children upon request. They meet the first Monday night, every other month, from 6:00pm - 7:30pm. Meetings are held February, April, June, August, and October. Also, in December we have a Service of Remembrance. For more information contact Sharon Kidd in the church office or Tri-County Hospice 606-877-3950.
Cancer Survivor Support Group
Coping with cancer is difficult; but having loved ones near by to offer encouragement can help. A support group
isn’t just sitting in a room talking about cancer. It’s about making friends that can
identify with your disease and help you cope. It’s a fantastic way to meet people in our
area that have the common bond of cancer. We can share tips, be support for one another,
and generally vent our frustrations with people who know exactly how we feel. Our goal is to help each other have a good outlook on life and be optimistic. Emotional
support and care is just as important as physical care.This group meets quarterly. Call the church office to find out the next scheduled meeting.
First Baptist Church offers education and support to families, friends and caregivers. The caregivers meetings are every third Tuesday at 5:30pm in the Anglers Sunday School classroom. (This is the first class on the left as you enter the parking lot side entrance). The contact person is Karen Wyan. Call our church office for more details.
Videos are available with workbooks in the church library. First Baptist is listed on the Divorce Care website as a church equipped to conduct Divorce Care groups, but does not continuously offer meetings. The library also has other books to assist one in finding help and healing for the hurt of separation and divorce. We do not want anyone to go through this alone. We want to help you deal with the pain and look forward to recovery and rebuilding your life. The contact person for this group is Karen Wyan. Call our church office for more details.
Parents of Autistic Children (PAC)
The purpose of Parents of Autistic Children (PAC) is to gather together parents, guardians, and other family members of children on the Autism Spectrum to talk about issues relevant to each family. Our goal is to discuss challenges each family faces now or may face in the future in order to obtain a better understanding and explore practical solutions to benefit both child and family. The PAC Team concept is an effort to create a network of individuals who can share ideas, successes, and challenges in dealing with the Autism Spectrum Disorder.
Future meetings will include guest speakers and other educational and informative programs as well as round table discussions involving every participant. Please consider attending our meetings so our children can benefit from each other’s experiences. Contact the church office for dates & times of upcoming meetings.
