Are you seeking healing from past abuse that you received while trusting others in a religious setting? That pain can make it hard to trust again and even harder to believe that God is truly safe. A six-week small group is meeting this fall to encourage and pray for each other around this issue. You are invited to be a part of a private Facebook group to study The Hurt & The Healer by Bart Millard and Andrew Farley and receive regular updates of encouragement from the Bible throughout the study. The book is recommended but not required.

This group is not moderated by a trained therapist and is not meant to take the place of a professional counselor to help work through emotional suffering from religious abuse. Referrals are available upon request.

When: 6 weeks, Beginning Wednesday, Sept. 16, 6:30pm.

This online, 12-week Bible study for senior adults, Established In Grace, is on Paul’s letter to the Colossians. Paul’s heart for the Colossians was for them to be established in the gospel of grace so they would not be deceived by all the different religious teachings and human philosophies swirling around Colossae. In our study, we, too, will learn from Paul and be established more deeply in grace.

When: Wednesdays, 10-11:30am, beginning August 19.

The Zoom link and study notes will be emailed to participants weekly.
