Connecting people to the transforming grace & healing of Jesus Christ
The Counseling Ministry at Memorial Road Church of Christ serves individuals, couples and families using a professional and biblically-based approach to address their emotional and spiritual needs. The counseling ministry is staffed by Christians who are trained and licensed as professional counselors with varying specialties and experiences.
The Counseling Ministry strives to meet everyone’s need and offers some level of intervention whether as a member of the Memorial Road Church of Christ or a member of the community at large. We primarily offer short-term counseling so we can be accessible to more people in their times of need and utilize a referral system for those whose needs exceed the current scope of our ministry.
Healing from divorce is not easy. It’s a long and painful process. The road of recovery should not be traveled alone. DivorceCare is a special weekly seminar and support group for people who are separated or divorced. It’s a place where you can be around people who understand what you are feeling. The weekly meetings include education and discussion about healing from the hurt of separation or divorce, as well as a time to gain support. Our program is led by a professional counselor, Jennifer Gotcher.
Our DivorceCare program meets this fall (September – November) on Wednesdays, at 6:30-8:00 p.m. in room A201. The class is free to attend. We offer a DivorceCare workbook that accompanies the supporting material in the class. The workbook is $15 (cash or check only) which can be purchased at your first session.
For more information, please contact Jenny Jones in the CARE & Counseling Office by e-mail or at 405-607-6432.
Grief is a very deep, complicated bundle of emotions that can be truly overwhelming. Each of us in our lifetime will grieve for a number of reasons brought on by life circumstances. Naturally, we think of grief after the loss of a loved one. We also may grieve loss of connections when we move, loss of a pregnancy or infertility, loss of a close relationship, the end of a marriage, loss of employment, and many other losses. Our church family cares deeply about those grieving in any way and we don’t want you to feel you are grieving alone.
Our GriefShare program meets during our spring and fall quarters on Wednesdays, at 6:45-8:00 p.m. in room A102.
If you have experienced the death of a loved one please join us for this class. In an atmosphere of mutual love and support, we discuss the journey of grief, and acquire tools to handle this difficult time in our lives. This group is specifically tailored to address grief due to the loss of a loved one. We do recognize there are many other causes of grief and will be glad to speak with you about plans for support in other areas.
