A Variety of Groups to Support You

Floris UMC offers many different support groups for those struggling with life’s challenges. The following is a list of resources that we offer along with a short description of each. For more information about any of these groups, please contact Carol Benson at cbenson@florisumc.org.


Alcoholics Anonymous: Floris UMC welcomes all AA members and those who have a desire to stop drinking. This free group allows men and women to share their experience, strength and hope in order to stay sober and help others become sober.

Meetings are every Monday (AA Step) and Thursday (Big Book) at 5:30 p.m.


Dementia Caregiver Support Group: This support group is for family and friends of those who have dementia, including Alzheimer’s. The group is a wonderful way to share experiences and gain caregiving insight from those who are on a similar journey.

Meetings are the first Thursday of the month from 7-8:30 p.m.


Caron Support Group: The Caron Parent & Family Support Group is designed to meet the needs of those with loved ones who are currently in treatment, are using alcohol and/or drugs in a problematic manner, or are in recovery. The mission is to help ourselves and in turn, help others whose loved ones are struggling with addiction. All adults (age 18 or older) are welcome.

Meetings are the first and third Monday of the month at 7 p.m.
