Forgiven and Set Free

Post-Abortive Group

Regret abortion in your past? You are not alone. It is estimated that 1 in 4 American women will experience abortion at least once by age 45. Many are sitting in churches each week – fearful that their secret will be discovered and wondering if God can really forgive them. There is hope and healing available. Forgiven and Set Free Ministry at Bethel Church offers Biblical support and encouragement in fellowship with other post-abortive Christian women who have been freed from the prison of fear, shame and isolation. Confidential inquiries can be sent to forgivenandsetfree@bethelfc.com.

Connection: A Counseling Group for Women

Ladies, are you longing for connection? You are not alone! In God’s goodness, He created us to live in a relationship with Him and each other. Unfortunately, this can be a challenge, and sometimes even messy. Bethel Counseling invites you to join us for Connection: A Counseling Group for Women. Connection is a safe space for us, together, to experience true healing in Christ. We will focus on learning how to build intimate, healing connections with others through compassionate and authentic relationships.

Tuesdays March 2 – April 20, 6:30 p.m.– 8 p.m.

  • 2 Groups: 1 @ Bethel Church & 1 Online
  • Connecting by Larry Crabb (Book), available at the Bethel Church office for $10
