Care Groups

Let's face it: Life can get difficult... complicated. But you don't have to navigate these seasons alone. This caring community of people, who have walked the path to recovery, will walk beside you on your journey to hope and healing.

We have groups for folks who are going through a divorce, have lost a loved one, struggle with an addiction, are fighting illness, want to save their marriage, or are seeking mental wellness.

Feel free to review the groups below and reach out to the leader for more information or to sign up. If you have questions or need help finding a group, contact Greg Arbues or request more info. If you're looking for another type of group, visit our Group Finder.

All women are welcome. We are not counselors, but we do have a passion to help!

***We are not counselors, but we do have a passion to help others based on our own past experiences. We want to make sure we all learn and grow in Christ's love together. We encourage you to share your thoughts, complete assignments (when provided) and be comfortable!

For Everyone on Friday at 7:00pm PT | Weekly | On-Campus | Anaheim, CA

Are you discouraged about your marriage or relationship? Wish you had a better one? Does it need a boost? Do you fear you are growing apart? If you said, "Yes!" to any of these questions, come learn new ways to handle old problems!


The Third Option is a weekly support group for people who want to work on relationships by learning how to handle anger more constructively, resolve conflicts, and communicate better, to name a few. It is good for anyone in any stage of relationship (seriously dating, engaged, married, or separated), even if you are single. This program can also help relationships with family, friends, or the workplace. It combines support groups, instructed lessons, and mentor couples sharing their stories to give participants insight and hope that reconciliation is possible, and workshops to improve relationship and communication skills. More information about The Third Option:

The Third Option can be a tune-up for married couples.

The Third Option can help distressed couples.

The Third Option's main goal is self-change. Participants must be willing to work on themselves, not their spouse or partner.
