DIVORCE, ILLNESS AND GRIEF SUPPORT GROUPS
Dementia Caregivers Support Group FREE Pearce Church
Caring for individuals with dementia can be challenging and, at times, overwhelming. It is normal to feel frustrated when emotionally drained by the difficulties of being a caregiver. These feelings of frustration can have serious consequences for you or the person you care for. The participants of the Dementia Caregivers Support Group are not professionals, but they are fellow travelers who provide encouragement, share resources, and listen and pray for one another. If you have questions about the Pearce Dementia Caregivers Group, please call the church office at 594-9488 and ask for Jeremy Kelly or the group coordinator, Mary Lou Bates.

3rd Tuesday of the month - Pearce Church
The commitment of Saddleback Church to people living with mental illness greatly increased on April 5, 2013 when Pastor Rick and Kay’s youngest son, Matthew, took his life after a lifelong struggle with mental illness. In the midst of the devastating loss of Matthew, Pastor Rick and Kay along with the Saddleback community, have united together to journey alongside people living with mental illness and their families in a holistic way.The Hope for Mental Health Ministry extends the radical friendship of Jesus by providing transforming love, support, and hope through the local church. The heart of this ministry comes from three passages of Scripture: "I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you" (John 15:15), "Serve one another in love" (Galatians 5:13b), and "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit" (Romans 15:13). Five life-transforming Scriptural truths that shape our approach to the Mental Health Ministry are illustrated in The Hope Circle: you are loved, you have a purpose, you belong, you have a choice, and you are needed.
2nd and 4th Tuesday of every month from 7:00 PM until 8:30 PM. All are welcome. This is a drop-in group. No need to register
