What We Do
“Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing. …encourage the fainthearted, help the weak, be patient with them all. Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” – 1 Thessalonians 5:11, 14b, 16 – 18.
With a desire to tangibly serve our church family currently walking the dementia journey with their loved one, the church is establishing a caregiver support group. The primary purposes of the support group include:
- To provide a safe environment for caregivers to share, fellowship, pray, and learn within a Biblical framework.
- To inform and connect our caregivers with community and other educational resources available to them.
- To educate and empower caregivers to maintain their own spiritual, mental, and physical health.
- To facilitate connections with other church ministries and ministerial support when needed by the caregiver or loved one.
When We Meet
We meet the 3rd Tuesday of each month from 10:00 to 11:30 am. Meetings are held on the campus of McGregor Baptist Church (3750 Colonial Blvd. in Fort Myers, Florida) in room H183, located at the back of the Fellowship Hall. Respite care for the loved one will not be provided during support group meetings. If you have any questions, please contact Nancy Perez using the information below.
