Real Grace for Real Wounds Journey Groups offer a safe place to talk about our baggage and how we might lighten the load, making it easier to move through life, making more time and space for relationships. Journey Groups is a nine session, small group ministry for people in need of healing from damage and hurt from the past that is lived out in the present. Damage caused by physical, emotional, sexual, mental, religious, or emotional abuse, neglect or other forms of woundedness are real issues crying for sensitivity, compassion and care. Journey Groups are a safe place, led by trained facilitators, who have experienced their own personal pain and found recovery in relationship with God and others. These leaders are trained by S.A.L.T.S. (Survivors of Abuse Leadership Training Seminar) of Open Hearts Ministry, an international ministry based in Kalamazoo, MI. Each session includes thirty minutes of teaching time and ninety minutes of small group sharing. A nine-chapter workbook, used as a guide, introduces a new topic for discussion each week, including: relational styles, anger, disappointment, abandonment, shame, forgiveness and more. If you are wondering why life seems to be so difficult or relationships seem so empty you might want to consider joining us. The days and times are listed below.
