First Woodway Care Ministry

First Woodway’s Care Ministry seeks to be a sanctuary of hope and healing for the hopeless and hurting. We do this in a variety of ways, including recovery groups, a special needs ministry, a visitation ministry, an annual event called Care Day (designed to promote mental health awareness), and much more. Explore the groups below and reach out to let us know how we can care for you.

Divorce Care  |  Meets Monday Nights at 6:30 pm  |  Room 204

Healing from divorce is not easy. At DivorceCare groups, people in separation and divorce finds tools, teaching, and support to help them deal with their pain and give them hope for the future. If you are facing this, you know it’s a confusing time when you feel isolated and have lots of questions about issues you’ve never encountered before. DivorceCare groups meet weekly to help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life. This 13-week Christ-centered program includes three main parts—video, group discussion and personal Bible study. Sign up here.

Porch Light  |  Meets Monday Nights at 6:30 pm | Glass Room

Many families in our church share the same private struggle: a child or loved one who has wandered from God and fallen into addiction or a pattern of poor choices. Porch Light, a care group that helps families navigate the chaos, was birthed by Brad and Lisa Hyde out of their own experience as parents of a child who struggles with addiction.

Porch Light is a ministry for the loved ones of those struggling with addictions. Whether a child, spouse, sibling, or parent: Porch Light is for any who are suffering along with their addicted loved one. We meet weekly on Mondays, and you are welcome anytime. No need to signup.

Helping Hands  |  Sunday Classes at 9:15 am + 10:45 am  |  HH Suite

Our Helping Hands special needs ministry is for persons with disabilities (babies through adulthood) and their families. It is our desire that people affected by disabilities and their families come to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Just as God showed His great love and compassion, we want to follow our Lord’s example in reaching out to people who have disabilities. Please take a look at the Helping Hands webpage for all the details.
