Fibromyalgia is a chronic illness characterized primarily by widespread muscle pain, fatigue, weakness, and cognitive difficulties. Many people struggle with sleep disturbances, headaches, irritable bowel syndrome, numbness and tingling of the hands and feet, restless legs, as well as a multitude of other associated symptoms. The cause for Fibromyalgia is unknown but researchers believe it is due to abnormalities in the central nervous system.
Christus Victor provides a place for those with the illness, and others affected by it, to meet as a group to discuss issues affecting their lives. We strive to focus on positive options for improving physical, emotional,, social and spiritual health. As a group, we offer support, education, possible coping techniques, understanding, laughter and sometimes -- simply a hug! Everyone is welcome to attend our meetings which are normally held the last Wednesday of each month from 6:45pm to 8:30pm, but check the Events Calendar for scheduled times.
The New Beginnings of Hope Group is a 12 Step Program of AA (Alcoholics Anonymous) who meet at Christus Victor weekly. They come together to discuss and help each other cope with the effects of alcohol on themselves and their families, and to understand the disease known as alcoholism.
There are no dues or fees associated with belonging to the group, but a collection basket is passed at each meeting to help defray the expenses of coffee, snacks (which are served at each meeting) and a donation to the church for the use of the hall. The group is open to anyone who feels they have a problem with alcohol in any way and wishes to seek help regardless of race, creed or sex.
Feel free to come to a meeting if you are interested and meet with a group of people whose only purpose is to stay sober and help others to learn a better way of life. Our group normally meets weekly on Fridays's at 7:00pm, but check the Events Calendar for the latest schedule.
Christus Comforters meet each Tuesday morning from 9:30am to noon to make quilts for those in need. We welcome anyone who wishes to join in the fellowship of working together. There are many components to the making of a quilt, such as color coordination, planning, cutting, serging and sewing. Or you can just join us for fellowship, you do not need to sew.
