Encounter Expands Online Services
Sometimes, we just need to know we’re not alone. Now, maybe more than ever, it’s important to have connection, community, and support.
That’s why Encounter, the gathering piece of Southeast’s Support & Recovery Ministry, is offering regular online meetings even during this uncertain and isolated season. Some of the groups offered each week include Anxiety Group, Depression Support, Grief, Divorce Support, Addictions, Overcoming Adversity, and several others.
Last week, Encounter began offering online Support & Recovery Groups. They had approximately 225 individuals attend that first week. Encounter facilitators and participants from different campuses jumped in together, and people were able to connect with those from other campuses who struggle in similar ways.
It was clear the need was significant.
After the initial response, one of the Crestwood Campus facilitators, Brent Frederick, expanded his Monday night Addiction Recovery meeting to every night.
The other groups expanded as well with the addition of facilitators from different campuses. Now, Encounter has online gatherings every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday night. There is also a Men’s Sexual Addiction Group that meets Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.
Although nothing is a substitute for face-to-face interaction, Encounter has seen some amazing encouragement using Zoom meetings. There is value in connection as men and women come together and check in with one another. The Zoom platform is helping Southeast bring groups together and add new people in as well.
The best connection point is the Encounter Facebook page at facebook.com/encounterSECC. They post resources and updates on a regular basis.
If you have any questions, please email email@example.com or call 502.253.8400. Groups are open to any adult. They also offer a Teen Support Group on Thursday nights.
