We recognize that as Life Group Leaders, you and your group will be the primary caregivers and support network when a member experiences a time of crisis, such as divorce, death of a loved one or illness. We want to equip you in providing care and help you discern when a member’s needs move beyond the realm of what a community group can provide. Feel free to contact us at any time if you have questions about how to handle a need within your group.

Some examples of how a community group can provide care include:

  • Preparing meals
  • Visiting someone in the hospital
  • Committing to pray for the individual
  • Checking in during the week
  • Babysitting children so the adult is able to have a “night off”
  • Doing yard work or cleaning the house, etc.

When any of the following situations occur, contact the Oasis offices:

  • Someone is suicidal
  • Someone needs a counselling referral
  • Someone is in need of financial assistance
  • Engaged couples are interested in premarital mentoring
  • Married couples are looking for either marriage enrichment or healing for troubled marriages
  • Someone is looking for support with a separation or divorce
  • Someone is interested in training to be better equipped for ministry to others in all areas of the church.
