Women seeking the Lord together in a community that understands loss.
Hope Groups are a group of women who have experienced miscarriage, stillbirth or infant loss
(up to two years of age) at any point in their life. It’s a collection of women
who meet and share their stories with one another, pray together, ask questions, share hurts, share happinesses …
and cling to His Word to find that there is still hope after the death of their precious sons and daughters.
Summer 2019 Hope Groups will run June 16 – July 21
Registration will be open May 6 – May 31, 2019
In-person only through Chapters will run a Mini Series on the Characteristics of God adapted from Prayer Stations at the 2018 retreat.

ANCHORED HOPE GROUPS:
Anchored Hope Groups are a ten week, Bible study and small group.
This book is written to give Biblical hope and encouragement to the grieving heart. As you study topics such as God’s character, Heaven, and how to relate to others through the lens of grief, you will discover that God’s Word is not silent. He steps in to your brokenness and will give truth, hope, and comfort through Jesus Christ.
Anchored invites you to grieve in a honest and faith-filled way. With personal stories, seasoned insight, and gentle questions, you are invited to lay your deepest hurt at the foot of the cross and allow God to anchor your brokenness.
We encourage you to participate in an Anchored study first before the I Am study. If you have never joined us in a Hope Group session we recommend Anchored Hope Group as the best place to start.
I AM HOPE GROUPS:
I AM Hope Groups are a ten week Bible study and small group.
“What we believe about God is the most important and defining thing about us, and it has the greatest potential to shape our suffering. That is why I most sincerely believe that a study on the character of God carries so much value
in our daily lives.
Through the course of this study we will be looking at nine different aspects of God’s character: His Name, Holiness, Sovereignty, Love, Faithfulness, Jealousy, Immutability, Goodness, Justice”
We recommend this study for those who have already gone through Anchored and are wanting to continue to grow.
IDENTITY HOPE GROUPS:
“When you have been marked by loss, it is easy to allow your pain to define who you think you are. But you are not defined by the sum of your joys or sorrows. Your identity is not about who you are or what you have done, but about Who you belong to.
It can be difficult to find comfort in the promise of a future hope while we are so heavily burdened with sorrow in the present. But our identity in Christ does not simply offer us hope for the future. In Christ, we have been offered hope, healing, and victory right now—in this very moment. As you study God’s Word, you will discover that a fresh reminder of your identity in Christ is able to permeate your grief with renewed hope and purpose.”
We recommend this study for those who have already gone through both Anchored and I AM and are wanting to continue to grow.
