Support Groups

Life brings challenging times to all of us, yet having a loving community of faith pray for you, listen to you, and support you in a myriad of ways can help you feel God’s presence as you move through life’s struggles.

At Marble, we offer a ministry of support for people going through grief, divorce, and other types of loss through individual and possible group counseling.
