About this event

Dates: Mondays - March 6th thru April 10th (3/6, 3/13, 3/20, 3/27, 4/3, 4/10)

Time: 6:30-9:00 pm (EST)

Details: Trauma knows no boundaries of nationality, gender, age, social class, or race. We all live in a fallen world and groan inwardly from the painful consequences of the fall. The Church is uniquely called to this mission field - it provides a theology for suffering, a community bound together in love, access to a God who is willing to hear our honest laments, and a Savior who knows what unjust suffering feels like and whose death on the cross heals the broken-hearted and forgives their sins.

A group to listen: This small group invites participants to begin the process of healing wounds of the heart—emotions, spirit, soul—from trauma or loss. If you suffer from hopelessness, nightmares, ongoing sadness or exhaustion, unexplained anger, flashbacks, being overwhelmed, feelings of isolation, or unprocessed grief, whatever the source, this small group may be for you. The group will be led by facilitators who are trained in Bible-based trauma healing.

Together, we will make a safe space for group members to:

  • Discover what the Bible says about suffering
  • Learn about trauma and its effects
  • Explore any trauma or loss you may be carrying
  • Release some of the emotional pain you carry
  • Help you get unstuck, reconnected, and ready to move on in life
  • Build resilience for the future

About the group model: This healing group uses the proven and time-tested model of the Trauma Healing Institute at American Bible Society. The group will use the book Healing the Wounds of Trauma: How the Church Can Help, which applies Scripture and best mental health principles to help you address spiritual and emotional wounds. It has been used in over 100 countries with more than 200 language groups in Africa, Asia, the Pacific, Europe, and the Americas. To learn more about the model, the Trauma Healing Institute, and its work in equipping and supporting a global community of workers in trauma care, please visit TraumaHealingInstitute.org.
