Anger Management (Men and Women)
Anger is a tough issue to deal with, and it can affect every area of our lives. Marriage, children, work, friendships, and self-esteem can all be hurt by uncontrolled anger. This group helps define anger and helps us gain an understanding of what causes it. We will also examine ways to gain control over our anger and how God can receive glory as a result. We offer separate groups for men and women.
Chemical Dependency Group
If you suffer from addiction to one or more chemicals, the important issue is recovery — how to overcome the compulsion to drink or use. A Christ-centered, 12-Step program can help you achieve a healthy and Christ-honoring lifestyle. Our group will help you discover the resources you need to accomplish these positive changes. Come and experience hope and healing from the isolation, anxiety, fear, and shame that accompany chemical dependency.
Sometimes it is hard to find people who understand the pain that comes along with an unwanted divorce. Everyone is affected: you, your children, your extended family, as well as your friends. It is easy for hurt to lead to anger and for anger to turn into confusion, loneliness, and fear. DivorceCare is a place to find caring people who understand your pain and want to help. It is also a place that will help you find your way toward recovery.

This class is closed after the second week.
S.A. Group (Men's Sexual Addiction)
Today everyone is bombarded with subtle and blatant sexual messages. Many individuals have developed distorted beliefs and practices concerning sexuality. Poor family role models, sexual abuse, or being subjected to pornography at an early age can all be contributing factors. These issues may result in compulsive and addictive behaviors. Our group is designed to help you learn how to live a Christ-honoring life in a world of sexual immorality. Registration is required to protect group members’ privacy. Email or call the Counseling office at 678-854-9300 to register.
Women’s Sexual Abuse Recovery
Statistics tell us that one out of every four women has been sexually abused. Women who experience this trauma wonder if they can ever be free of the haunting memories from their past and whether they can ever feel physically, spiritually, and emotionally whole again. Feelings of betrayal, shame, fear, guilt, and loneliness stemming from sexual abuse can be devastating. This group is designed to offer help and hope in the midst of the darkness. Registration is required for this class to protect group members’ privacy. This class is for women only. To register or for more information email or call the Counseling office at 678-854-9300.
Wives of Sex Addicts
Our group will help women understand their husband’s addiction, give them strength to face the struggle and offer them helpful guidance as to how they can be a part of the solution. Registration is required for this class to protect group members’ privacy. This class is for women only. To register or for more information email or call the Counseling office at 678-854-9300.

At any given time in America 1 out of every 10 people is suffering from some form of depression. Statistics tell us that almost everyone will face it at some time in their life. Living under this dark cloud can be scary and even debilitating. Our women’s group is designed to offer open discussion, prayer, and continued support through the most difficult of days.
