HUDSON — A group of local veterans invites any returning veterans, active duty service men and women and their families to a support group serving people in Northern Summit County.

Faith Deployed is a group meeting the first Monday of each month for returning vets. Older veterans offer encouragement, mentoring, prayer and support to younger veterans as they adjust to life after active duty.

Veterans Circle meetings, every second and third Monday of the month, are for all veterans from all branches of the military to support each other in an open format. Veteran’s Circle attendees also visit veterans confined to nursing homes to offer Bible study, prayer and friendship.

Family Support meetings, the fourth Monday of each month, are for parents, families and loved ones of service personnel. They meet to encourage and support one another and pray for their beloved veterans and active duty service men and women. All groups meet at Christ Community Chapel in Room 11 at 750 West Streetsboro Street in Hudson and begin at 7 p.m. No reservations are needed. For additional information, call 330-650-9533.

If you know of a loved one who is actively serving, submit their name for continual prayer at
