WHAT IS RESTORATION: BEAUTY FROM ASHES?
All women deserve the right to live an extraordinary life. However, statistics reveal that as many as one in three women have experienced sexual abuse by the time they are 25 years old. Sexual abuse is a most heinous and violent crime against a woman, and the pain, shame, and silence that result can leave a woman feeling paralyzed for the rest of her life. Sexual abuse is never the fault of the woman; however, it is her responsibility to seek help if she wants to experience healing, restoration, and freedom. Restoration: Beauty From Ashes is an 11-week Bible study and support group, with new groups starting in Fall 2022. More than 250 women from Rivers Crossing have experienced this journey and are testimony of God’s restorative healing. You can be too.
Please note that the Restoration experience is not a replacement for professional therapy but is a place where women with similar experiences have the support they need to live as they seek God’s healing. Emphasis is not given towards the abuse itself but to what is left behind such as shame, guilt, bitterness, struggling relationships, poor self-esteem, anger, and anxiety. If this is your story, please make a commitment to attend all 11 weeks this winter, by joining this loving and supportive community of women survivors who have experienced God’s grace and healing.
Registration and group details are kept confidential and handled by the Restoration leadership team. To register for an upcoming study or speak with a ministry leader, please complete the following form.
To all who mourn in Israel, God will give a crown of beauty for ashes,
a joyous blessing instead of mourning, festive praise instead of despair.
In their righteousness, they will be like great oaks
that the Lord has planted for his own glory.
