Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality. -Romans 12:10-13
Over 1.5 million Americans are diagnosed with cancer every year (American Cancer Society).
Cancer Care Support Group
Our Cancer Care Support Group provides patients and caregivers a safe, supportive place to discuss their feelings, celebrate their victories and cope with the challenges of a cancer diagnosis. Our group meets the 1st Tuesday of every month from 6:00-7:30pm in the Brooklife Cafe. Join anytime!
One to One Cancer Care
Oftentimes, cancer patients can feel overwhelmed or even ostracized and ignored as people often have a difficult time knowing how to talk about cancer or support their loved one through a diagnosis. Our heart is to serve, comfort and encourage men and women fighting cancer as well as their caregivers, families and loved ones with practical support and spiritual care. We want to bring the hope of Christ to every person affected by this illness. Let us be a partner in your fight!
Cancer changes the lives of those whom it touches in ways that few can imagine. God desires to give people with willing hearts the ability to take His precious gift to the hurting and change their difficult road into a journey of hope. We provide 8 weeks of training focusing on how to walk with those impacted by cancer and their families. You will join with individuals who are in the middle of their own journey and help them navigate their path with hope. Because each journey is unique, the exact needs and ways that we are able to offer support and care will be different. But at the heart of each situation will be a Cancer Care Minister supporting someone with a diagnosis.
If you or someone you care about are affected by cancer, would like to walk with a cancer patient or want other ways you can help (i.e., meals, childcare, transportations, etc.), email Greg Peterson, Care Director.
