- EDMOND FAMILY SUPPORT GROUP -
This support group is a small, intimate group with member numbers ranging from 3-10. We would love to see this group grow a little. We meet just inside the front doors of the church either to the left or the right. When we started this group, we were waiting for people to show up and were sitting in these big comfy chairs and we all decided to just stay there!! There is not a lot of foot traffic around us so we really do have the privacy that we want. You are invited to become part of our group, especially if you are wanting more time to talk and share. Our regular members have become quite fond of each other and we welcome more “friends” to join us!

- Crossings Church -
Our Crossings Caring Families support group been meeting for over a decade every Monday night. Anyone who loves someone with a mental illness is welcome. Attendance averages between 10 and 20 people at various emotional stages ranging from dealing with the crisis, learning to cope, and ready to advocate.
Finding our classroom: Start by entering on the east side (around back from Portland). From the door, greeters will help you find your way. The large open area is referred to as the atrium. This is where you will find dinner. Look for the staircase or elevator to take you to the second floor. Another greeter will be at the top of the stairs to help you find room 239.
The Crossings group meets every Monday except for the occasional conflict with a holiday or in case of inclement weather. Check the church website for closures.
