Rapha Ministry

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.

If you have any questions or would like more information about Rapha, please contact us at rapha@journeyweb.net. Our Frequently Asked Questions are also helpful.

INTRODUCTION TO RAPHA

UPCOMING EVENTS

 

RAPHA WORKSHOP – Words and their power to curse or bless

When: Saturday, October 26th from 9am-1pm
Where: The Commons at Baxter & Love
Cost: Free! (A freewill offering will be taken during the workshop.)
Registration: Register online here, email rapha@journeyweb.net or call 406-922-0190.

Words can be very powerful, with a remarkable capacity to give life, but also the potential of causing hurt, shame, fear etc., often in a long-lasting way. Few of us ever stop to ask what we might have spoken about ourselves, or what others might have spoken over us that might be working against our growth, our discipleship journey, our healing and wholeness.

Words and their curses can remain hidden but toxic in our life and relationships with others, bearing their own negative fruit. Such words are part of the spiritual and emotional landscape of our lives and also in those we love, until we bring them into the open and spiritually and emotionally remove their damage forever.

In this workshop Pastors Peter Holmes and Susan Williams will cover four areas:

  • The power of words to bless and to curse and how this works psychologically and relationally
  • An introduction to the wealth of understanding that Scripture gives us
  • A space to see how this applies to your own life and to others that you might be supporting
  • Setting out the steps clinically and pastorally to move into cleansing from past damage, and to be able to use words with the creative power that God intended

You are welcome to this workshop whether this might apply to your own life, for someone in your family or for others that you are walking alongside.

 

Rapha 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 Jeni at jeni.jacques@journeyweb.net or 406-577-1740.

Our next gatherings are: 

Friday, November 1st (4566 Cascade Street in Bozeman)
Friday, October 6th (4566 Cascade Street in Bozeman)

Women’s Workshop – Mothers & Daughters: Unleashing More Love & Life, Part 2

When: Monday, December 2nd from 6:30-9:30pm

Where: The Commons at Baxter & Love
Cost: Free! (A freewill offering will be taken during the workshop.) 

Registration: Register online here, email rapha@journeyweb.net or call 406-922-0190.

God has so much that He intended we receive from our mother. It’s the most complex of all family dynamics with the potential for abundant life, growth, and freedom. God thought mothers were a good idea! But mother-daughter relationships are often marred by need, pain, or other historic damage.

Whether we have experienced the blessing of a positive relationship with our mother or are navigating the complexity of historic damage, the Lord wants to set us free into the life that He intended. He does not want us to be hijacked by our mother’s weaknesses. But what is our part in letting that healing happen? And what does it mean for our adult relationship with our mother? It is not enough to understand the damage; God wants to heal, to make new, to set us free to be a daughter of the Most High God. It’s a transformation that can also be a blessing to our mother, if she chooses.

If we are also a mother, what model can we use for a healthy relationship with our daughters? We will explore a vision of healthy mothering, to enable our daughters to grow into more of who God created them to be—and acknowledge the reality that it might not always look the way we want or expect!

In this women’s workshop Pastor Susan Williams will be looking at how to welcome more of God’s redemption both as daughters and, perhaps, as mothers. Whether you have been to one of our workshops before, or whether this is your first time, you are very welcome.

 

Women’s Evening

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, November 7th.
(Please note on Monday, December 2nd we will be running a Women’s Evening Workshop at 6:30pm at The Commons, so we will not be having a Women’s First Thursday on December 5th.)
