Rid of My Disgrace (8 weeks)

This group is an introduction into processing sexual assault. In discussing the book/workbook Rid of My Disgrace, we will address the effects of sexual assault with the biblical message of grace and redemption. Jesus responds to your pain and past. Your story does not end with the assault. Your life was intended for more than shame, guilt, despair, pain, and denial. The assault does not define you or have the last word on your identity. Yes, it is part of your story, but not the end of your story. The cost of the curriculum for this group is $25.

Facilitator: Josephine Roh
Meeting: Fridays, starting Sep 6
Time: Noon–1:30p
Contact: Josephine.Roh@HoustonsFirst.org for more information.

Grief Processing Group

Loss — something we all have experienced or will. In experiencing a loss, a natural response is to grieve. Yet, sometimes we avoid it or simply are uncomfortable in allowing ourselves to feel those emotions. The primary focus of this group will be on giving attendees a safe place to talk and share. Some coping skill will be presented but the primary focus will be on offering support to one another.

Facilitator: Chris Jee
Meeting: Tuesdays, starting Sep 3
Time: Noon–1:30p
