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.

OTHER UPCOMING EVENTS
Evening Workshop on Shame
When: Thursday, June 20th from 6:30-9:30pm
Where: The Commons at Baxter & Love

Shame is one of the most pernicious feelings of our emotional palette. It blocks us from engaging life fully regardless of whether it is just or unjust. Shame is so often unnoticed, hidden, and frequently very toxic – in both men and women. It also tenaciously sticks to other feelings like anger, pain, and our tears. It often remains hidden until exposed by difficult situations in our lives. How do we rid ourselves of such toxic shame, or help others do so?
The simple answer is that Christ wants to take all our shame, whatever place it has in our lives. In our workshop Pastors Peter Holmes and Susan Williams will help us learn how to support those incapacitated by shame, and how to be free ourselves. Join us as we look Biblically and therapeutically at how to respond to healthy and unhealthy forms of shame.
Join us on Thursday, June 20th at The Commons for this evening workshop. Registration and refreshments open at 6pm and we will begin the workshop at 6:30pm.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or 406-577-1740.
Our next gatherings are:
- Friday, June 14th (location TBA)
- Friday, July 12th (location TBA)
- Friday, August 16th (location TBA)
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 or would like more details, email Jeni at email@example.com.
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 6th.
