RAPHA (Hebrew): to repair, restore, make whole.
Rapha is not just about healing… this journey is about becoming whole. God promises that He can bring lasting wholeness in every area of our lives, transforming us from our inner spirit outward. It is up to each of us to decide if we will partner with Him to become more of the true person we are created to be.
INTRODUCTION TO RAPHA
OTHER UPCOMING EVENTS
Rapha Missional Community (Community Evening)
Rapha is the Hebrew word for healing and wholeness. In our community we enjoy authentic relationships where its safe to be honest about where you are at. We share journeying together to pursue who God created us to be. We seek to reach out and welcome those who have need, whether historic or current. We share a meal, worship, testimonies of God breaking through and have a devotional. We are kid-friendly, and welcome those who aren’t in a current relationship with the Lord. Some of our community also meet in groups during the week to journey together.
We meet primarily at 4566 Cascade Street in Bozeman one Friday per month at 6pm. We keep people updated on the exact date and location each month by email. If you are interested in getting on our email list, please contact Jenn at firstname.lastname@example.org or 406-577-1740.
Our next gatherings are:
Friday, May 25th at Al & Sue Deibert’s home [2470 Etta Place in Bozeman]

In the middle of the Ten Commandments God sets out what appears to be a curse – that the consequence of sin will be upon the third and fourth generation. Its easy to view this as unfair and even feel angry with God – how can this be the act of a loving God? Yet we now have evidence that its true. In science the pioneering field of epigenetics is recognizing that situations faced by one generation can create physiological and emotional damage in the next. The material reality of Exodus 20:5 is being uncovered.
In this evening workshop, Pastors Peter Holmes and Susan Williams will use scientific and Biblical perspectives to explore the emotional and physiological challenges created when damage impacts several generations. They will highlight the power God has given to change these inheritances. The month of May is Mental Health Awareness month, so we will be giving special attention to the epigenetics of Ex 20:5 in emotional health. How do trauma, grief, fear or betrayal move from one generation to the next? This understanding offers us greater potential to walk into the healing and wholeness of God’s redemption.
The Morrisby Assessment is a UK-based psychometric assessment to discover what your natural talents and gifts are. It will suggest education and career options, and help you get to know yourself more. If you are interested in attending the next assessment on June 6th or would like more details, email Jenn at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Join us the first Thursday of each month from 6:30-8:30pm at The Commons where the Rapha Women’s Leadership Team will be creating space for us to meet each other and meet with God. The focus of our evening varies. You can expect a mixture that might include: testimonies, worship, fellowship, table discussions, Q&A panels, reflective time with God, etc. We focus on encouraging authentic relationships, talking honestly together, and sharing tools for journeying into greater wholeness and deeper relationship with God.
If you have not been to a Rapha event this is the perfect place for you to come and meet those who are part of this ministry. All women are welcome!
Our next Women’s Evening is Thursday, June 7th.
