Domestic Abuse Prayer & Support Group

This prayer group has been created for women dealing with domestic abuse who need a safe place to talk and receive support. If you need help, know someone who needs help, or if you would like more information regarding joining this group and how to support someone dealing with domestic abuse, please contact (this is a confidential email managed by only one female leader in the church). Resources available below.

Domestic Abuse includes any kind of verbal, physical, sexual, and spiritual abuse which desecrates the image of God created in the other person. An assault on one of God’s image bearers through domestic abuse is an attack on God. To ‘desecrate’ means ‘to treat (a sacred place or thing) with violent disrespect. – adapted from the Association of Biblical Counselling


Domestic Abuse includes intimidation, manipulation, humiliation, isolation, threats, insults, force, sexual or physical coercion or harm, verbal degradation, financial control, and using Scripture against another person, used to maintain control over another person in an intimate relationship. Abuse does not respect the value inherent in another human being.
