Comfort and Care in Community
We offer several support and recovery groups at The Chapel. The groups exist to provide comfort, care, and understanding to those who are in need.
Divorce hurts. There is no greater emotional, spiritual, and physical loss that can equal the devastating pain of a failed marriage. People who have gone through or are going through a divorce need immediate and strong help. Their crisis requires people who not only can identify with the loss of divorce and the issues surrounding the loss, but who care deeply and desire to comfort.
That is one of the major reasons why The Chapel offers DivorceCare on Thursday nights. We are not interested in the whys, hows, and whats of your divorce. We are not interested in condemning or criticizing you. We are interested in providing a forum like DivorceCare where, in an environment of accountability built on unconditional acceptance, each person can face the issues of divorce with dignity and hope.
DivorceCare is a 13-lesson seminar and support group that deals with the issues facing a person going through separation and divorce. The group meets on Thursday Nights from 7-8:30pm in the Fireside Room at the CrossPoint campus. To register for DivorceCare, please arrive 15 minutes earlier than the start time of 7:00 pm, so you can register, purchase your workbook ($15), and grab a cup of coffee!
Those who are living cancer free, living in remission, or living with the disease are ALL survivors! But being cancer free isn't the same as living "free of cancer." Sometimes our lives are not characterized by the peace and hope God wants us to experience. Our aim is to provide a safe, non-judgmental atmosphere where we find comfort, compassion, and understanding. The Chapel's Cancer Care support group, Hope for the Journey, meets to mutually encourage one another to keep trusting God. Our aim is to focus on what we have in Christ, the REAL "Big C", rather than on what we have (or had) in the body!
If God has written cancer into your life, join us!

Set Free, our addiction support ministry, exists to provide a safe place, along with help and support, for anyone suffering from any addiction. This recovery group has Jesus Christ at the center and each step of the 12 Steps to Recovery Program is supported by passages of Scripture. There are many in this group who have achieved, through the grace of God, sobriety and recovery; some are just beginning the journey, while others have had sobriety for as long as 25 years.
Freedom Groups is a ministry that exists to provide a safe place, along with help and support, for men suffering from sexual addictions. This recovery group has Jesus Christ at the center and each step of the 12 Steps to Freedom is supported by passages of Scripture. For more information on Freedom Groups call 716.982.8907.
Likewise for men with a sexual behavioral issue, Pathway to Purity provides anonymity and strict confidence within the group allowing for truth and honesty to be shared with others. We seek to learn how the Bible speaks directly to us and how it clearly guides us on our life’s journey.
