Men, Women & Families
When sin entered the world’s story, it inevitably led to fractures in our own. But if we invite the gospel into our brokenness, there is healing and renewal. As brothers and sisters in Christ, we are called to care for one another's journey of restoration.
God deeply desires us to experience freedom, using it to love and serve one another without fear or manipulation (Galatians 5). Transformation to that happens when the gospel informs our identity, redeeming even the darkest aspects of our lives through the power of His Spirit and relational support.
We want Mosaic to be a community where people feel safe to admit their struggles. After all, we all have them. And it’s only after confession that we can hear the words, “Me too.” By being open in a healthy and safe space, we also can experience the power of prayer and a biblical worldview that actively reinforms our outlook, founding it on truth rather than scars, fear, and habit (James 5).
Counseling and Recovery Groups create this kind of environment where a small community that understands what you’re facing can regularly walk alongside you as you pursue clarity and wholeness.
Our Recovery Groups meet weekly to explore the truth and way of Jesus in a therapeutic community that knows and prays for each other. All of the groups are led by trained volunteers or staff.
Some focus on addiction, others on the consequences of abuse, and some on loss. Similarly, depending upon their nature, some groups are geared solely for women while others for men. Most meet on Monday nights at our Winter Garden Campus, but there are some exceptions.
Here is a small sampling of some of the Recovery Groups we offer throughout the year. You can view all of our currently available groups on the calendar.
Our Men’s Recovery Group provides a safe place for community, sobriety, and healing. Our leaders use a curriculum to teach how to “work smarter, not harder” in breaking free from sexual bondage.
This group exists for women whose lives have been distorted by sexual abuse. In it, we utilize the Shelter From the Storm course to help women be able to recognize and halt destructive behaviors that are negatively affecting their lives today.
ReGroup is a therapeutic community of Mosaic that encourages each of us to embrace our individual story and acknowledge why it matters. Many of us need to create some space between ourselves and certain behaviors or attitudes that may be hurting our relationships with others, our relationship with ourselves, and our relationship with God.
Life-changing support groups welcome people and guide them on the path of recovery after separation or divorce.
When we experience the loss of a loved one, we often have to walk through a long and strange season where the world around us and its activity seems to have returned to normal, but our grief continues, leaving us feeling alone. Often our friends and family want to help us but are unsure how. GriefShare exists as a place of support and understanding.
Too often, military veterans experience difficulties readjusting to the civilian sector. The Mosaic Veteran Support Group not only provides faith-based support for stressful issues but also connects veterans with other similar-minded veterans. We can assist with finding employment and mentorship or simply provide general support and conversation. Our goal is to create a unique and safe environment for veterans who would like camaraderie from their peers. Esprit de corps is not just for active duty, but it is equally important to veterans in their post-military lives. Our group will be beneficial to any veteran attending whether you’re there to give or receive motivation and support. We welcome all veterans to attend.
We have several lay counselors trained to work one on one with people seeking individual counseling. We also partner with many local licensed therapists to whom we refer. You can start by meeting with one of our intake counselors to determine the best fit for you.
Marriage is a singularly unique relationship in our lives, in both connection and complexity. We offer premarital and marriage counseling for couples looking to engage with each other in a way that honors the Bible’s beautiful, enduring vision for marriage. We also highly recommend our marriage class, Re|Engage, as a way to embark on better understanding yourself and your spouse.
This recovery path lets you explore your personal story through prayer with the guidance of one to two trained individuals. Typically, you meet with these guides at least three times over the course of a few months, picking up the journey where you left off from your previous meeting.
We know what you’re struggling with because we have been where you are and have struggled with the same issues and emotions that you are dealing with right now — and so have thousands of other women who have gone through post-abortion recovery — trying to making sense of it all and finding the “off” switch for the rollercoaster of emotion that comes in the aftermath of going through an abortion.
The aftermath comes with feelings such as guilt, shame, regret, depression, anxiety, and anger, and struggles such as broken relationships. We have been there, and we can tell you that there is hope. You can be renewed.
Embarking on this journey may feel like a rollercoaster at times because you may have dealt with some of these issues already, but as you go through the course, you will find that some of them have not been dealt with yet. To face them may be difficult, but in the end, the reward is redemption, a feeling of renewed strength, and peace.
Walking through infertility is never easy, but it’s even harder when you feel alone. There is a wonderful support to be found within the friendship and safety of a group of people who understand. This group is a safe place to share feelings, prayers, and praises; and, in doing so, gain new strength.
