Forgiven and Set Free

Date and Time are not posted for confidential reasons
Forgiven and Set Free is a confidential 12-week Bible study for women who have been negatively impacted by past abortion. Author Linda Cochrane says, “No matter what drives a woman to end a pregnancy, there are physical, psychological and spiritual side effects most don’t anticipate.  Feelings of guilt, shame, and grief become a heavy burden and many women feel they will never be free, that no one understands, that God will never forgive them.” Trained facilitators who have also felt the secret pain of past abortion lead participants to find hope, healing, and freedom in Christ. Confidential inquiries can be sent to:  forgivenandsetfree@bethelfc.com.
