A safe judgment-free environment to take steps toward freedom & recovery

A place to make 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, judgement-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.)
