In keeping with our goal of being a place of faith, love, support, connection, hope and resources for people in need we offer meeting spaces for several organizations.
Metro North Grief Support – This support group will provide a safe, supportive environment for those who have lost a loved one. Each meeting is independent of itself, so attendees are welcome to join at any point in their grief process. We host meetings at church on Mondays at 7pm.
PFLAG - (Parents and Friends of Lesbian and Gays) The Anoka County chapter of this group meets at our church on the second Thursday of every month from 7:15pm – 8:30pm. www.anokanorthmetropflag.com

Al-Anon – Members are all kinds of people from all walks of life: wives, husbands, lovers, sisters, brothers, children and parents of alcoholics. No matter what our relationship has been with a problem drinker, we share a common bond: we feel our lives have been deeply affected by another person’s drinking. We meet together to share our experience, strength and hope. There are two different groups that meet; one on Tuesdays at 10am and another that meets Thursday evening at 7pm.

AA Steps – Alcoholics Anonymous is an international fellowship of men and women who have had a drinking problem. It is nonprofessional, self-supporting, multiracial, apolitical. There are no age or education requirements. Membership is open to anyone who wants to do something about his or her drinking problem. The group meets on Tuesday evening at 7:30pm.

Bridgeview Drop-in Center – Bridgeview is a drop-in center for adults living with serious and persistent mental illness (SPMI). Adults living with SPMI’s often struggle with the stigma of their diagnosis, causing them to isolate themselves from others. Bridgeview offers a setting that promotes social interaction, psychosocial rehabilitation, and recovery from mental illness. Members have access to an extensive mental health library, nutrition and wellness classes, drop-in time to socialize, eat lunch, and enjoy activities in the community. Staff works closely with families, care providers, and community organizations to assist with access to resources and services. Membership is free, but members must have a diagnosis of serious and persistent mental illness from a psychiatrist, therapist, or medical doctor. To learn more visit www.leecarlsoncenter.org
