Support Groups

Christ Church recognizes that healing happens when you have the support of family and friends. We are pleased to be able to offer a variety of support groups to members and non-members alike. Some are run by Christ Church, while others are outside groups.

Al-Anon

Mondays • 12 – 1 pm • Room 202 & Zoom

If your life has been affected by someone else’s drinking, there is hope. Al-Anon is an anonymous fellowship that helps family and friends of alcoholics. Contact Renee for more information or houstonalanon.org.

Alcoholics Anonymous (Closed Meeting)

Wednesdays • 12 - 1 pm • Room 202

This is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other so they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. Contact Renee for more information or aahouston.org.

This is a closed meeting. Closed meetings are for A.A. members only, or for those who have a drinking problem and “have a desire to stop drinking.”

Alcoholics Anonymous (Open Meeting)

Mondays • 8 - 9 pm • Rooms 202

This is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other so they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism.

This is an open meeting. Open meetings are available to anyone interested in Alcoholics Anonymous’ program of recovery from alcoholism. Nonalcoholics may attend open meetings as observers.

Cancer Support

The journey through cancer is not a time to be alone. For those with new diagnoses, undergoing treatment, family, and friends of cancer patients, Christ Church wants to be here.

We are building a cancer support team. If you have traveled this road as either a caregiver or care-receiver and know that God has beckoned you to serve in this area, please visit christchurchsl.org/cansupport to volunteer. Orientation and training will be provided.

Depression and Bipolar Support

Thursdays • 7 pm • Rooms 208 & 209

Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance Greater Houston provides free, confidential support groups for individuals living with, or family and friends affected by, depression and bipolar disorders. Our support groups help those trying to understand these two difficult mental disorders so they can better assist their loved ones on their path to wellness. The facilitator will be an experienced trained leader of the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance Greater Houston. Contact Michelle Hall, 281.980.6888 for additional information.
