MOPS (Mon. 29 May, 2017 9:00 am - 11:00 am)

A local Springfield MOPS group is about meeting new mothers and being support for each other.


Here at MOPS, we are on a mission to celebrate motherhood. We build circles of women who love each other like family, because raising humans is beautiful and hard, and having each other to lean on is life-giving. That’s why we connect moms all over the world to a community of women, in their own cities, who meet together to laugh, cry and embrace the journey of being a mom. This is motherhood, and together we can change the world in all the best ways.


There is a teacher at each meeting that watches the children. We hope you'll join us!

Cancer Companions Support Group (Tue. 30 May, 2017 6:00 pm)

Seeing God through your cancer journey is an opportunity for patients, survivors and caregivers to explore what the scriptures are saying about your cancer journey. This is done through short readings about faith, questions, healing, prayer, stress reduction, relationships, communication and healthy living. 


Discover the truth that Jesus wants to give you more than peace. He wants to give you bottomless strength, insurmountable courage, abundant guidance, abounding joy, thriving relationships, and above all, hope. 

Celebrate Recovery (Tue. 30 May, 2017 7:00 pm)

Celebrate Recovery is a confidential 12-step Christian recovery program that provides a safe environment designed to address issues such as alcoholism, divorce, sexual abuse, codependency, domestic violence, drug addiction, sexual addiction, and much more. It is a safe place to share your experiences, strengths and hope in a Christ-centered recovery atmosphere. Celebrate Recovery is biblically based and founded on the principles of recovery from the 8 Beatitudes in the book of Matthew.


Food and fellowship (optional) begins at 6 PM, followed by a large group session. The session starts with worship, followed by a lesson on a recovery topic. After this will be open small groups, and gender specific share groups at 9 PM.


Meals are provided at a cost of $4.00, and at the Solid Rock Cafe there will be free desserts and more fellowship after the small group meetings. Come and see what Celebrate Recovery can do for you! Join the Celebrate Recovery Leadership Team every Tuesday night as we present this life changing ministry.


There will be FREE childcare for ages 1-12. Celebration Place (CR) is offered to kids ages 5-12. For more information, please call the church at the number listed above.
