Friends of Rachel Infertility Support Group
2nd Tuesdays, Starting October 13, 6:30 pm, B152
A woman’s struggle with infertility is deeply personal and affects every area of her life: and it is an experience that often makes us feel isolated and alone. And yet, as we learn in scripture and in our own relationships, there are many who have journeyed through this difficult season. Friends of Rachel is a monthly confidential group created for women struggling with infertility. The group will offer support through prayer, scriptural and devotional study, shared stories, and periodic guidance from medical and spiritual professionals. If you are interested in learning more, please contact Karla Daniel at firstname.lastname@example.org or Allison Ahern at email@example.com.
