Mondays

Crossroads: Pursuing Purity for Men

Mondays, beginning January 24 at 7 p.m. in Room A
Participants in this group will focus on growing spiritually as they work together to confront the deception and overcome the temptation of sexual sin.  This behavior most often occurs in secret, so it is easy for people who struggle in this area to hide and have difficulty finding help.  This is not an easy journey and some experience detours and breakdowns along the way.  This is why Jesus has called us to be a caring community who help one another.  This group will be a safe place for participants to share without fear of embarrassment.

Forgiven and Set Free

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 emailed to: ForgivenAndSetFree@bethelfc.com.
