Cancer Companions

Parish Life is offering a cancer support group called Cancer Companion.
This ministry is run by trained church volunteers who support cancer families through
individual meetings and/or Christian cancer support groups.

We’ll meet some new people, we’ll share our stories.
There will be tears, but there will also be laughter….healing laughter,
and you will not be alone on this journey.

Seeing God in Your Cancer Journey 

We offer a safe place where you can talk about the things that concern you, worry you or infuriate you.  More than a listening ear and an understanding heart, our groups bring the gifts of prayer, scripture and devotionals to lift up anyone impacted by cancer.

Cancer can lead to frustration and questions as you try to make sense of your struggle.
This 9 week book/video bible study that leads you through scriptures to explore how the Christian faith can support you on your cancer journey. 

Dates for the next Seeing God in Your Cancer Journey Session are TBD.
