Memoirs of a Christian Who Chose Abortion

To end abortion effectively, the church needs to become safe. Abortion is traumatic and permeates the church far more than we realize.  Abortion is often chosen under intense pressure with no support for life.  Let’s change that!  This class will equip us to create a safe culture of God’s healing grace for those who have lost children to abortion and to champion new moms and dads for life.  We have the resources and power to help heal the wounded and support moms and dads in choosing life. COME BE A PART OF CHANGING THE CULTURE! With the Word of God as our guide, we discuss the roots of abortion, effects on individuals, families, churches, and society, and learn how God can redeem it. There is a suggested donation of $25 for this class to Hope and Grace International Inc to equip more churches as safe havens. See video to learn more!

Evening class TBD based on interest. Please contact Joni Shepherd if interested 503-789-0974 or joni@hopeandgraceinternational.com.

Abortion Redeemed – Healing

Teacher: Joni Shepherd, hopeandgraceglobal.org
Abortion Redeemed HEALING is for women dealing with the effects of past abortion. Abortion wounds can be buried for years or even decades and women tell themselves they are okay. Until we unpack the experience in light of God’s love and faithfulness, the wounds continue to fester and can affect our emotional, relational, and spiritual health. Join us in a safe, confidential community to bring unimaginable transformation and redemption as we process our stories together with the hope of God’s truth and grace. Shame and fear are transformed to confidence with God’s forgiveness and the freedom to fully grieve our losses and allow God to work it for good. Shame and fear are transformed to confidence with God’s forgiveness and the freedom to fully grieve our losses and allow God to work it for good. Take courage –healing is possible!

If interested, CONFIDENTIALLY contact Joni Shepherd at 503-789-0974 or joni@hopeandgraceinternational.com. See video for more info.

12 Spiritual Weapons to Slay Your Giants. Everyone knows the story of David and Goliath, a small lad defeating a massive man with just a sling and a stone. What we may not realize is that David utilized not just a sling and a stone, but activated 12 weapons to defeat Goliath. As you will see, these 12 weapons, when applied to your circumstances, will conquer any problem you may be facing. In order to competently deal with the giants in our lives, we need to utilize spiritual weapons against our foe. To better understand those weapons, we will look at the physical and verbal arsenal that David used to slay Goliath and bring victory, not only to his countrymen, but also to his own personal life. Each of the physical/verbal weapons that David used is a “type” of spiritual weapons that we are to use against our enemy. Applying these 12 weapons against our enemy will bring victory in your walk with the Lord.
