Care Groups Overview

Contact the Care Department at 489-3254x500 or by emailing care@newlifepismo.com if you have any questions about any of the following groups and/or Care Ministries.
 All of us have to deal with the effects of living in a fallen world, whether it be with the grip of sinful desires, broken relationships, or losses through illness or death. But we believe that God wants to be present with us and to give us hope in all aspects of life. He also wants us to experience encouragement and care from one another. New Life has set up a number of care groups to help you deal with specific issues in a loving, grace-filled, and non-judgmental environment.
This list is dynamic! It's based on the needs of our community and the calling of our attenders to follow Jesus.
Each of the above care groups is by appointment only. Please contact Merrie Biddison at the care center for information on the schedule for the next group session. Membership in a group may require an interview with the group leader.
New Life also offers a number of Regular Adult Classes. For a listing, click here.
