A safe, judgment-free environment to take steps toward freedom & recovery while making issue-specific connections

What To Expect

The Mat is designed for anyone who struggles with past hurt, present addiction, harmful habits, or a need for greater freedom in any area.

We provide a safe, judgment-free environment for you to take your next step towards healing and wholeness. You will meet people who have confronted similar struggles and allowed God to walk them through His healing process.

All Mat groups are confidential. (The photos you see on this page are of leaders who consented to show you what it would be like to attend.)


The Mat meets weekly on Thursday from 7:00pm-8:00pm for the summer from June 8 – August 3 for Mat Groups only. The normal schedule of 6:30pm-8:30pm will resume on August 10.


Childcare is available for a suggested donation of $5 for 1 child or $10 for 2+ children
