Women of all ages and life-stages are facing the pain of relational and sexual idolatry. Pornography and promiscuity are not “men’s” issues only! Many Christian marriages are being impacted by sexual unfaithfulness and hurting spouses don’t know what to do. Then, while it seems ‘less harmful’, unholy emotional attachments are also wreaking havoc in the lives of many. For those who need help understanding these struggles and how to apply the hope of the gospel to them, then please consider participating in our 3 part webinar series beginning Sept. 11th, 2017 and led by Ellen Dykas, Harvest USA’s Women’s Ministry Coordinator.
September 11th – Emotional Affairs – Recognizing Unholy Attachments.
How far is too far when it comes to closeness with someone you work with? Serve on a ministry team with? Is a friend’s husband? Your pastor? This webinar will unpack how to discern when healthy boundaries are being crossed, and how to take steps to flee an unholy attachment to another person.
September 18th: Setting Up Discipleship Groups for Female Sexual Strugglers.
How do you set-up and run a group for women who may be struggling sexually?
