“He is Trustworthy: Walking in Faith” — Weekly Blog Posts from Susie Smith
Susie Smith, a long time Cornerstone attender and sister in Christ, updates her blog weekly with encouragement in the Lord. She started the blog in 2014 as a way to share when they went to adopt their son from Uganda. She has recently been writing posts that will bring you hope and encourage you to seek God wholeheartedly, specifically in these trying times. You can read Susie’s blog by clicking here!


Women seeking discipleship are matched one-on-one with spiritually mature women who will come alongside to encourage and guide them as they study and grow in their relationship with Christ. This discipleship program offers an in-depth understanding of the Christian faith and how to be a woman that pleases God.

Widow to Widow: Encouragement for the Journey
Meeting every fourth Saturday of the month
9:30–11:30 a.m.
The Café
Please note: We will not be meeting in January.

This ministry provides encouragement through God’s Word and from widows who are farther along their journey. We will study the truths of Scripture, share about God’s faithfulness in our lives, and pray for our needs as widows. This group is for women in all stages of the journey. If you would like to receive encouraging emails from the group, have questions, need prayer, or would like to keep up to date with when the group will meet, please email Sue at widowtowidow@gmail.com. Childcare is not currently available.

Widows’ Lunch Fellowship
The loss of a spouse is life-altering and often devastating beyond words. Finding God through such pain and confusion may be hard. The Widows’ Fellowship meets one Sunday a month for lunch and to support each other in sharing praise and prayer requests. They simply desire to love Christ, love one another, and keep their eyes fixed upon Christ to allow Him to create something beautiful in the midst of great loss. If you would like more information about our fellowships, please email Marilyn at widowsfellowship@cornerstonechapel.net or call the church office at (703) 771-1500.

Surrendering the Secret: Healing the Heartbreak of Abortion
Next study begins February 2021
Close to 1 out of 3 women in the United States have experienced an abortion. Many struggle for years with repressed memories, guilt, shame, and depression. If you feel you have never completely healed or recovered from an abortion experience, or that a past abortion may be affecting your current quality of life, know that God yearns to give you hope, healing, and peace. Surrendering The Secret is an eight-week, biblically-based study led by women who have been where you are. Our hope and prayer is to provide a compassionate and confidential environment that will bring healing and restoration through God’s Word.

If you have had an abortion in your past and would like to attend one of the next studies, have questions, or are in need of prayer, please email Cynthia at cynthia37h@gmail.com. Your privacy will be closely guarded.

Restoration: Beauty for Ashes
Next group starts February 2021
Restoration is a confidential, 11-week support/study group that helps women who have been sexually abused (at any age) find hope, strength, and healing in a safe community. In that moment of abuse, a woman’s three basic rights are taken away: her voice, her strength, and her trustworthy relationships. The heart of this ministry is to trust God to restore these rights, making beauty from ashes. Due to the sensitive nature of this group and strict confidentiality, all women must attend by the second meeting or will need to wait until the next season to participate. There is no cost to attend this group; all materials are provided. If you would like more information or would like to attend the next study starting in February, please email Melinda at restoration.leesburg@gmail.com.

Bread of Life Support Group
If you are struggling or have struggled with an eating disorder such as compulsive overeating, binge eating, anorexia, or bulimia, you are not alone. Bread of Life invites women to experience abundant life in Christ, free from food bondage. If you are ready to experience hope and healing, please email breadoflifeloudoun@gmail.com with questions or for more information.

Women’s Knitting & Crocheting Group
Do you love to knit or crochet or want to learn how to? Would you like to meet other ladies and fellowship together while knitting or crocheting? Then we encourage you to join our knitting & crocheting group! We are currently not meeting in person, but if you are interested in joining the group, have questions, or would like to be updated when we start meeting again, please email Carolyn at carolyngazdick@gmail.com for more info.
