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.

There is much concern about the amount of loneliness and social isolation that we experience today. In our families and churches, in workplaces, in the crowds of smiling faces, there is a significant amount of hidden loneliness. Many feel more isolated than ever before. What are the factors contributing to this individual and cultural phenomenon? What are some of the answers that can lead us to a life of connection, belonging, and personal peace?
Recent research has shown that social isolation has a significant and severe physical and emotional impact. In this workshop, Pastors Peter Holmes and Susan Williams will explore this 21st century epidemic from a Biblical, sociological and psychological perspective. They will look at the healing we can let loose in our own lives and what we can offer to others.
Join us on Thursday, January 16th from 6:30-9:30pm for this free workshop.
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 email@example.com or 406-577-1740.
Our next gatherings are:
Friday, January 10th (4566 Cascade Street in Bozeman)
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 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, January 2nd.
