Widow to Widow: Encouragement for the Journey

The Café
Please note: In November we will meet on the third Saturday on November 21.

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.

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

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. The fall study is currently closed. The next study will begin in Spring 2021. Contact Cynthia if you’d like to attend the next study.

Restoration: Beauty for Ashes
Tuesdays, September 8–November 17
6:30–8:30 p.m. • Ministry Room
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 info or would like to attend the next study 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
