Restoration: Beauty for Ashes

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.

The next study starts in September 2021. If you would like more information or would like to attend the next study, please email Melinda at

Surrendering the Secret: Healing the Heartbreak of Abortion

Almost 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.

The next study will start in September and will be offsite. If you would like to attend the next study or are in need of prayer, please email Cynthia at Your privacy will be closely guarded.

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.
