What happens at a support group?
- Settle in & Snack – We provide sisters a window of time to get settled in. During this time, sisters mingle over a spread of light snacks and refreshments.
- Learn – Sisters sit with their small groups and a Hagar’s Sisters leader will teach the weekly lesson to everyone.
- Share – After the lesson, small group leaders will facilitate a time of discussion.
- Pray – We close each week with a time of prayer.
Who participates in support group?
Our Sisters comprise of a wide range of ages, marital status (not married, married, separated, divorced), abuse experiences (past, ongoing, non-physical, physical), ethnicities, and are often of the Christian faith, as our support group curriculum is rooted in biblical teaching. However, all women of any faith or no faith background are strongly encouraged to attend and are warmly welcomed. Your right to spiritual beliefs is respected.
Care planning services help you create an actionable 'Care Plan,' so you can care for yourself throughout your healing journey.
