Our support group is like nothing you have been to before. It isn't like a church service, or like an AA/NA meeting. You don't come because you have to, you come because you want to. The people there become more of family than friends. Are you going through something? Need someone to lean on? Trying to find what God has called you to do? Have a loved one in prison? Just got out of prison? Just need something different? Come check us out.
So, what do you do in this support group?
We have fun! We talk about God, our daily struggles and help each other through whatever we are going through. We go to Rangers games, camping trips, feed the homeless in Ft. Worth, help other churches, go bowling and just show others that being a Christian doesn't have to be boring, that you can have fun without alcohol or drugs, that you can be clean and sober and remember everything you did, but still have a great time. To learn to trust people again and have people trust you. One thing we will never do in this ministry is judge anyone.
This all sounds awesome! How can I help?!
There are a lot of ways to help. You can help plan one of our many upcoming events, volunteer at our food bank, volunteer on a Wednesday to work in Ft. Worth to earn credit for our food pantry. We write to men and women all over the United States and are always needing people to write to the men and women behind bars that have family and friends who are no longer talking to them, you can become a TDCJ approved volunteer and go to worship services and bring God behind bars. None of that sound like something you can do? You can help financially, we are a donation run ministry and when the donations run out, we run out. If you would like to donate, there is a donation button on our homepage for paypal, a donation of any amount will go a long way. If you can't help financially or physically, you can pray for us. Pray that God continue to use and bless the ministry that He has given us to care for and nurture.
When and where do you meet?
We meet every Monday night from 6:00p-8:00p. Unfortunately at this time we do not have childcare and due to the nature of what is normally discussed in the meetings, children are not allowed. They can be distracting and might cause someone to not be able to open up to whatever is going on with them that is important. The address is 106 W Second St, Venus, TX 76084
Do you have childcare or a children's church on Sunday mornings?
Unfortunately at this time there is not childcare during the church service, but we are partnered with First Baptist Venus that is right down the street and they have graciously offered childcare for anyone who would be bringing children to the service
