EDMOND FAMILY SUPPORT GROUP -
This support group is a small, intimate group with member numbers ranging from 3-10. We would love to see this group grow a little. We meet just inside the front doors of the church either to the left or the right. When we started this group, we were waiting for people to show up and were sitting in these big comfy chairs and we all decided to just stay there!! There is not a lot of foot traffic around us so we really do have the privacy that we want. You are invited to become part of our group, especially if you are wanting more time to talk and share. Our regular members have become quite fond of each other and we welcome more “friends” to join us!
