Infertility Support Group
The Bible recounts many stories of women and parents journeying through the loss of a child, yearning to grow a family, and adjusting to surprising new family structures, which disrupt and shift expectations. Come be with us on Thursday, December 6 from 6:30pm-8pm as Lisha Epperson talks about her journey and invites us to share in a safe, supportive, and spiritually grounded community. All genders welcome. To register and for more information, please contact Lucy Breidenthal, Head of Children & Family Ministries at lbreidenthal@heavenlyrest.org.

Need a Prayer

Open my lips, O Lord,
and my mouth shall proclaim your praise.

Create in me a clean heart, O God,
and renew a right spirit within me.

Cast me not away from your presence
and take not your holy Spirit from me.

Give me the joy of your saving help again
and sustain me with your bountiful Spirit.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit:
as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen.
