About the Event

BrookfieldCare & SupportPrayer

This is a support group rooted in Bible study and fellowship dealing specifically with the concerns that widows experience in their lives. The goal is to lean first on the Lord through studying His Word, and explore its application to everyday living.

Our purpose is to support widows in our community by providing prayer, spiritual guidance, fellowship, and encouragement because:

  • The grieving process can be intensely traumatic
  • Adjusting to widowhood is challenging
  • We find comfort from those who have been comforted
  • We can share practical resources

Meets in the B200 Quad the second Saturday of each month. Questions? Contact Geri at widows@elmbrook.org.

Encouraging Scripture verses:

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God. (2 Corinthians 1:3-4)

I will lie down and sleep in peace for you alone, Lord, make me dwell in safety.Psalm 4:8)

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. (Isaiah 41:10)

I pray that out of His glorious riches He may strengthen you with power through His Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord's holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge - that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us! (Ephesians 3:16-20)

The Lord your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing. (Zephaniah 3:17)

In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. (Philippians 1:4-6)
