Embrace Grace Ministry to Start New Session

Unplanned_Pregnancy_Support_Groups__2__0.jpgDwell’s Embrace Grace ministry serves women facing an unplanned pregnancy, addressing their practical and spiritual needs. The ministry is starting a new semester of sessions on March 16th at Dwell’s Main Campus.

Julie Geiger with the group says this semester follows a successful inaugural semester last year:

What is Embrace Grace?

It is a pro-love, Bible based support group for single mothers facing an unplanned pregnancy. An unexpected pregnancy can be scary. It’s normal to feel lost and alone and even a little afraid. We know what that’s like–and we can help. You can have your baby and your dreams, too! We offer emotional and spiritual support, working through issues like forgiveness and God's grace.

What has been Dwell's experience with this ministry so far?

We had our first semester in the fall of 2023. We had a wonderful experience helping out a young single mother. Her relationship with God really blossomed throughout the study and she continues to walk with the Lord.

How do you see God working through this ministry?

I see God bringing young women into a relationship with Him and providing an ongoing support system where they can grow in their relationship with God and other Christians. We want to provide a safe place for women to make connections and get to know each other. This is an opportunity for them to share the struggles they are going through and hear how God can redeem and restore their life. We want to show them that they are valuable and precious to God and that He can give them strength.

How can people help?

Our primary need is people who will commit to pray for us. We also need people to organize donations and people with skills for the special encouragement events, such as photographers and hair stylists. There may be other needs as well, such as babysitters or drivers. Together, we can ensure no single mom has to walk alone. Get involved — whether it be praying, donating, or using your talents to serve at one of our events!
