Care + Support - West Ridge Church

Care Groups

Everyone has areas in their lives that cause them pain or keep them from moving forward in a truly healthy way. As Christ-followers, we can choose to deal with these areas and apply God’s truth to our lives for healing. That’s what Care Groups are all about. These groups provide a supportive and intentional setting for people to share their struggles in a safe way and to move forward in freedom.
