Support & Encouragement Circles for Men & Women
These circles gather not just to study a book about the topic together, but to uniquely support and encourage one another through the growth process. Because of this commitment to one another through life-style changes, these circles may meet together for a longer period of time. Read the description below to decide if one of these circles is your next step to take in a growing relationship with Jesus.
Mending the Soul: Understanding and Healing Abuse
by Steven R. Tracy
This ministry is led by Patti Walker; circles are facilitated by trained leaders for men and women and meet for a minimum of 14 weeks. Circles will begin again in the Fall, with the days and time determined separately for each group. Sign up now to express your interest and meet with Patti to discover if this study is a good fit for you at this time.
Mending the Soul is a healing model for abuse survivors and their caregivers. Abuse is a human issue – men, women, girls, and boys can all experience abuse. Mending the Soul deals with verbal, spiritual, sexual, physical, and neglectful abuse. It also discusses the abuse in narcissistic family systems. It is a ministry about God’s love and healing power in a broken world. Each circle is completely confidential, learning and working through the six stages of healing in a safe, supportive community.
Dr. Steven and Celestia Tracy, who created the program for Mending the Soul, describe it this way: “Healing is basically relearning to feel, to express and to need in a community of safe people, where nurture and comfort are the norm. In short, unless we face the pain and truth of our victimization, we will not be able to experience healthy relationships in the present.
