celebrating your scars
angela mcbride

Everyone has been wounded (hurt) either physically, emotionally or spiritually but not all are healed. Christ su ered for us, died on the cross for us and left an example of what we should do. “He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his wounds, you have been healed.” 1 Peter 2:24 (NIV). Our scars are marks of grace. In this small group, we will focus on recognizing our wounds and allow God to heal us.

courageous- Cancer care
melissa warner

Be Strong, vigorous, and very courageous. Be not afraid or dismayed. For the Lord, your God is with you wherever you go. Joshua 1:9 Hearing the words you have leukemia or cancer can be devastating to an entire family. It can be a lonely journey to the one experiencing it, tiring for the caretaker, frightening for the ones watching their heroes fight. I have worn every shoe along this journey. The journey can be hard and challenging, but you don’t have to do it alone. Let’s seek God together, as He heals hearts and binds up brokeness, and as we become powerful and courageous in This journey.
