Hope, Healing and Restoration for Women

No one is immune to the impact of sexual abuse. Although much of the current research has shown how one abusive event dims the life of the victim, we live in a time where sexually harmful behavior has become so common that we avoid naming it as abuse. In the midst of such tragedy, most of us have chosen to hide our hurts or attempted to heal ourselves. The consequences of sexual abuse can never be fully removed, yet when we lay our wounded heart before God’s tender kindness and strength, the power of shame cannot win.  –The Allender Center

Wounded Hearts is a 12-week Christ-centered small group.  The group is designed to provide a safe place for women who have experienced childhood sexual abuse or sexual assault to join with others. Together the group will work to find guidance in the midst of confusion, and to find hope for their wounded hearts.

Using the Wounded Hearts curriculum by Dr. Dan B. Allender as our structure, the group will work through the complex issues of sexual abuse in a concrete way.  The group will journey together through a step-by-step process of change to:

  • Face the truth about past and present experiences and feelings
  • Deal with the emotions and damage that affect our relationships with God, self and others
  • Find healing and redemption in our stories.
