Participants in this group will focus on growing spiritually as they work together to confront the deception and overcome the temptation of sexual sin. This behavior most often occurs in secret, so it is easy for people who struggle in this area to hide and have difficulty finding help. This is not an easy journey and some experience detours and breakdowns along the way. This is why Jesus has called us to be a caring community who help one another. This group will be a safe place for participants to share without fear of embarrassment.
