Mental Health

CBC’s mental health ministry offers Grace Groups to address mental health concerns. We see a noticeable difference in people’s lives when a support group is there to “bear one another’s burdens.” (Galatians 6:2)

A unique aspect of Grace Groups is that every lesson stands on its own so newcomers are welcome to join at any time. Pre-registration is available but not required – just come and register when you get here!  Click here to watch ‘What are Grace Groups?‘, a 3 minute video in which Grace Alliance CEO/Co-Founder, Joe Padilla, explains what Grace Groups are, how they work and what the research says about them.
