At Aldersgate we care for one another so nobody walks alone. In order to connect you with the help and care you need, we have a variety of support groups. If you are interested in joining a group or would like more information about one, please fill out the form below or call our church office at 714-544-3653.
Neighborhood Support Groups
Each of our members belongs to a neighborhood support group, which we call Shepherd Groups. Each of these groups is led by a shepherd, who facilitates communication and provides support to members when needed, such as organizing meals during a recovery period or death in the family.
The death of a dear family member or friend is hard. If you are struggling with loss, Aldersgate offers Divorce and Grief Recovery, a faith-based support program that can help you cope during this tender time and move toward healing. Divorce and Grief Recovery sessions take place weekly in a friendly, safe and caring environment. This support group helps you connect with others who are grieving and provides exercises and information that help you come to terms with your pain and rebuild your life.
Meals for New Parents
Life with a new baby is overwhelming and exhausting. Through this ministry, volunteers support new parents by cooking or purchasing meals and delivering these meals to their home.
Prayer Shawl Ministries
This group gathers to lovingly knit or crochet prayer shawls. When the shawls are completed they are prayed over and given to people who are ill or recovering from surgery or just need to be comforted.
College Care Boxes
College is an important time of transition, and once students begin their college journey we want them to know that we are supporting and praying for them. To express this support, our Care & Nurture Team creates personalized care packages and sends them to students in their first year of college.
When a loved one passes away, our pastors and staff would be honored to assist you in arranging for a memorial service to celebrate their life and entrust them to God’s eternal care. Our Memorial Services team can work with you to plan and coordinate the memorial service and reception.
