Widows’ Fellowship and Encouragment Group

Widows in our church and community are invited to meet for a time of fellowship and encouragement. The group meets the second Saturday of the month at 10 a.m. in room B151-152. Please email MelissaR@stonebriar.org if you need childcare during this meeting.

Two key focuses for the first year

Fellowship: This unique group of women would like the opportunity to gather together for fellowship because they share a desire to follow God and enjoy the support and encouragement felt from those who understand their unique loss. 

This will be done in the following ways:

  • One of the widows within the ministry will reach out to offer understanding, empathy, encouragement, and hope to those who have been recently widowed.
  • Other connection points for fellowship will be group invites to attend various Stonebriar events, as well as intentional encouragement to help widows become involved in small group communities at Stonebriar.

Resource: The leadership of the Widows’ Ministry would like to connect volunteers with widows who need assistance. These volunteers can help in daily, practical ways with tasks that do not require a professional.

For more information on upcoming opportunities, e-mail us at widowsministry@stonebriar.org.
