Men, Women & Families
At Mosaic, we jokingly (but also seriously) say we live on “Planet Death.” When sin entered the world’s story, it inevitably led to fractures in our own. But if we invite the gospel into our brokenness—healing and a renewed life enter with it.
God deeply desires us to experience freedom, using it to love and serve one another without fear or manipulation (Galatians 5). Transformation to living freely happens when the gospel informs our identity, redeeming even the darkest, most brutal 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, some on loss, and more. 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.
Participating in the Men's Freedom Spouse Support Group has been instrumental to my healing. My newfound understanding of deep wounds and its lifelong impact has transformed my perspective of people. Completing the assignments based on my own deep wounds has helped me become aware of the different areas in my life that need healing. This has been a stepping stone to victory as I take this difficult journey.
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.
