At Grace Chapel, it is our strong belief that we are not created to live life alone but to live in community.  Life with all its joys and sorrows is to be experienced with others.  Mutual encouragement and confidentially shared trials that parents of prodigal children experience, help to lighten the load and increase strength for the journey.

Hope For Hurting Parents is a support group intended for parents of children 16+ years and older including adult children. Our promise to parents who participate is each support session will be free of judgement and a commitment to confidentiality.

Our meetings are not a Bible study or Prayer group, but we will refer to scripture for direction and we will purposely pray for you, your children, and grandchildren.  Each couple/participant will receive a free copy of the "Hope for Hurting Parents Notebook".  Written by Tom & Dena Yohe, they share valuable insights into 22 different topics [grief and loss, enabling, guilt, fear, detachment, worry and anxiety, anger, resentment, letting go, expectations, guarding your marriage, guarding your family, powerlessness and control, communication, waiting, surviving the holidays, courageous love, forgiveness, thankfulness, self-care, expectations, and hope].
