SIDE-BY-SIDE WIVES GROUP

Side by Side Wives Group is a group for wives whose husbands are battling sexual sin. When sexual unfaithfulness impacts a marriage, both spouses need specific care and help. Our ministry to wives provides encouragement and support for women who need comfort, wisdom, and hope as they face this painful experience. This confidential group provides a safe, grace-filled place to help women move forward in healing. The group utilizes various books for discussion, along with Scripture, all with the aim of learning how to apply the gospel in a woman’s specific marital circumstances. This confidential group meets two times a month at leader Heidi Friend's home. Newcomers are always welcome. Please sign up below or contact Heidi directly with questions.

STEWARDS OF GRACE:
Time: Thursday | 7-8:30pm | year-round
Contact: Susan Vanderwey 
Location: Near Harvest 

Sexual sin often has a weight and pull on one’s heart in which one is left feeling broken and alone - someone longing to be known yet frightened about being found out. A desire for intimacy. Wholeness. Healing. But there is too much at stake. If you are in that struggle, you are not called to carry it alone. The gospel can give you freedom from sin’s pull as you walk in grace toward transformation and newness of life. Although heavy and hidden, there is no sin that is out of reach of grace!

If you are interested in transformation and healing, please contact leader Susan Vanderwey or use the form below to sign up. Newcomers are always welcome.

A PROFOUND MYSTERY (A Book Club for Engaged & Married Women)
Time: Wednesday | 7-8:30pm | starting October 6
Location:
 Near Harvest
Contact: Amanda Ooms

Inspired by the conviction that God created sexual intimacy in marriage to be joy-filled, life-giving, and mutually fulfilling, this women’s book study group exists to provide a place for women to come together to equip one another to work alongside their husbands to sanctify, enrich, and deepen the sexual intimacy in their marriages. Whether you are feeling clueless at the outset of married life or are afraid that the intimacy in your marriage is stagnating or even on life support, this group is for you. We will begin our time together by reading and discussing Sacred Marriage by Gary Thomas. Due to the personal nature of this group, all conversations will be confidential. For more information or to sign-up, please contact leader Amanda Ooms or use the form below.
