Support Groups & Educational Classes

How do I access support groups?

A way that Chapel Hill cares well for community is by providing a tailored support group option for various issues that many face in life. All of our groups include the biological, psychological, social and spiritual approach. Meaning, we blend our Christian faith and evidence-based helping models provided by psychological research. We provide groups for grief, divorce, care of those experiencing cancer, and for life stages such as being a new mom. We also offer programs for youth and families like VIP (Value. Identity. Purpose.), which is a mental health support group for teens in 9th-12th grade. For adults seeking support please contact our Care Coordinator. For help with youth, adolescent and family care, contact our Support and Family Care Supervisor or call 253.853.0291. If you would like to learn more about facilitating or leading a support group, please contact Katie Nelson at


Counseling Services

How do I access counseling?

We offer Christian lay counseling services to the church and greater community. Our services include lay counseling, which is competent, caring, compassionate help from high trained laity, who for a small suggested donation can provide brief, non-clinical care to adults age 18 and older. Lay Counselors are under the supervision of a licensed professional counselor and work within a Christian counseling framework, while utilizing evidence based treatments for counselee’s. We also provide pre-licensed care with graduate students who are completing their Masters in Counseling. Under the care of a licensed professional counselor, Interns can provide care to youth, individuals, couples and families within their scope of experience and expertise. There is a minimal suggested donation for this care and is available to the church and greater community. To schedule an appointment, please contact our Care Coordinator.

What counseling services are available to me? 

Chapel Hill provides professional and lay counseling for individuals, couples 18 years and older.  

Lay counseling is provided by those who are highly trained and have worked through their own healing journey through Christ-centered and Chapel Hill-based trainings. Lay counseling has a limit on how many sessions they can provide and donations are appreciated. Meet our counselors.

Pre-marriage mentoring ministry begins with couples completing an assessment. Areas assessed include personality, spiritual beliefs, role expectations, money matters and other marital topics. Discussion of the evaluation is facilitated by skilled and experienced marriage mentor couples. The mentors guide the engaged couple through several sessions. Total cost is $35 for assessment and materials.
