LONG LOST FAMILY SUPPORT GROUP

With increased interest in researching family lineage and DNA testing, there have been a growing number of people discovering surprising information that can sometimes rock their world.   Did you have a surprise result from a DNA test? Are you dealing with the reality that a parent is not really your biological parent? You are not alone. In the book of Romans, we are told that each of us is special and God has a plan for our lives. That’s where the Long Lost Family support group is a small group just for you. This monthly small group meets at CCO on the third Saturday of each month at 6:30 PM. We will discuss encouraging Bible passages, and share our stories, in a trusted setting. We also invite those who gave up a child for adoption, or maybe you were adopted, and feel an emptiness and are looking for answers. Spouses, or your other support person is also welcome. Click here to get more info and/or join the group.

CCO has an opportunity to grow relationships and explore your faith.  It’s called Faith Connections!  Bob and Laura Bagne host this weekly gathering every Sunday morning at 10:30 AM in the Youth Room.  Join others for great fellowship and engaging conversation on a variety of topics related to faith and life.

The Hope Connection: Moving Forward Initiatives (MFI)

MFI groups cover faith, personal ministry, marriage, parenting, career, finances, relationships and more.

We'd love to meet you!

Whatever your faith background, we invite you to come and join us as we experience God’s love and grow in our faith together.
