Talk. Pray. Know.

 Women's Small Group

This Small Group meets at our new space, Murray's House, at 3614 SW 6th Street (across 6th from Aldacos Tacos; parking by Wildside Smoke Shop) on Thursdays at 6:30 p.m. 

This might be the group for you if you have experienced any of the following: lost children, a death in the family, isolation, caring for elderly parents or a spouse, feeling unknown by your church family, or other types of loss. 

 

Talk. Pray. Know. is: 

  • A place to share what is hurting, read a Psalm of comfort, and pray together.

  • A place to listen, and a place where everyone gets a turn.

  • A place to offer each other prayer – not advice.

  • A place to be known.

  • Led by Denise Carter. For a preview from Denise, click here.
