Men’s Sexual Addiction Support Group
A Ministry of Blackhawk Church
Men’s sexual addiction is a real problem in our broken world. What begins with viewing pornography sometimes leads to a full scale addiction problem. Addiction in any form destroys marriages and relationships, compromises work settings and devastates lives.
The reality is that true addiction requires professional therapy before a support or maintenance group can be effective.
At Blackhawk Church we have a closed and confidential support group for men who have an admitted sexual addiction. In our group we offer a safe, loving, biblically-based setting for support and accountability as we strive to grow in our relationship with Christ.
To inquire how to find help for sexual addiction or to inquire about the Blackhawk Church group please contact Dave Gagnon.
JOIN US for an informational meeting about our Mental Health Ministry
August 13 // 11 am or 4:30 pm
If mental illness affects you or a family member, Grace Groups may be for you! We offer separate peer support groups for those living with a mental illness and those who are family members of someone living with mental health difficulties. Grace Groups provide a positive place to connect with others and lean on God's grace through the various difficulties associated with mental illnesses. Groups will be offered in the fall.
The Blackhawk Prison Aftercare Ministry extends the love of Christ to those within the Blackhawk community who have been affected by incarceration. If you or your family would benefit from support or information, contact email@example.com.
