Surrendering the Secret: Healing the Heartbreak of Abortion
8-week Bible study (participation is confidential)
Monday evenings 6:30-8:30pm starting September 30
Joni Leahy’s home
Many women hide the secret of abortion deep in their hearts, and suffer severe consequences. They carry a great burden of shame and failure afraid to reveal their hidden pain, and by doing so are forced to endure the long-lasting effects in isolation. Surrendering the Secret will allow women to release this burden and find freedom through “redemptive community” while experiencing hope and joy as shame and failure are replaced with beauty.
Email to RSVP or with any questions.
Mondays, starting September 23-November 18
6:30-8pm in the Tower Room
$40 for the class, register here.
Overcome is a 9-week group study for those affected by mental disorder and their supporters.

He writes about the ascension of Christ, the outpouring of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost, the ministry, persecution, and expansion of the early Church, and Paul’s missionary journeys to the Gentiles.
