Career Support Team
This team meets on the First and Third Wednesday of each month from 10am-11am in Room F210-1. Our purpose is to provide networking, prayer, and support to anyone who has lost their job, or has a loved one who is struggling with job loss. Through our time together, and through the testimony of many individuals who have been involved in this group, we have learned what a mighty God we serve. He cares so much when we experience job loss, but He cares even more that we grow close to Him in the struggle, coming face to face with Jesus. For more information, contact 362.7663 x 37, or email@example.com

Surrendering the Secret - Healing the Heartbreak of Abortion
43% of women of childbearing age have experienced an abortion. That is 1 out of every 3 women. Many struggle with repressed memories, guilt, shame, and depression.
Surrendering the Secret is an 8 week course designed to bring healing to women who have abortion in their past. Millions of women hold this secret deep inside and many are suffering the consequences. Surrendering the Secret allows women who need help to connect with women who can help.
If you don't think you need healing from your own abortion experience, Surrendering the Secret is a place to offer help and encouragement to someone who does.
