ONE TO ONE CARE (Stephen Ministry)

A confidential ministry that pairs trained Care Givers with Care Recipients to provide long-term support.

GRIEFSHARE

If you’ve lost a spouse, child, family member, or friend, you’ve probably found that there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel. That’s the reason for GriefShare, a special seminar and support group for people grieving the death of someone close. This group is sponsored by people who understand what you are experiencing and want to offer you comfort and encouragement during this difficult time. GriefShare is a non-denominational group and features biblical teaching on grief and recovery topics. We offer GriefShare several times a year.

LIVING WATERS

Living Waters provides a safe, confidential environment for those seeking ongoing healing and wholeness in sexual and relational issues. This discipleship and prayer ministry addresses the roots of brokenness. Anyone committed to deeper intimacy with Christ, self, and others is welcome; some have found it especially helpful with struggles including (but not limited to): fear, insecurity, co-dependency, pornography, effects of abuse, promiscuity, gender identity issues, and unwanted same-sex attraction.

Applications are closed and no longer being accepted for the 2022 session; in the Lord’s will, we are prayerfully looking forward to offering the ministry again in late 2022 or early 2023.


Men Pursuing Purity is for all men, age 18 and up, who struggle with sexual purity and want to be free from the damaging effects of sexual brokenness and addiction. Weekly meetings include worship, teaching and small groups. In each group, participants are given a chance to check in, discuss the teaching and then receive prayer. Accountability and prayer are two major components of the small groups. Contact Mike Schlick (livingwaters@eastbrook.org or 414.380.0166).

An 8-week book study for women who want to grow in intimacy with Christ, addressing issues of relational idolatry, purity, forgiveness and freedom. Weekly meetings include worship, teaching and small groups. In each group, participants are given a chance to check in, discuss the teaching and then receive prayer. Accountability and prayer are two major components of the small groups.

  • Men’s Health: Explore the physical challenges that are particular to men’s bodies as we age.
  • Women’s Health: Explore the physical challenges that are particular to women’s bodies as we age.
