    • Women’s Bible Study – Forgiven & Set Free:  an inspired Bible study that effectively ministers God’s healing grace to women who are suffering remorse and guilt after an abortion. This 12-week study guides suffering and hurting women to bring their emotional scars from abortion “out of the dark past and into His holy light,” where true and lasting healing can take place. Appropriate Scriptures help women deal with issues such as:
        • Relief and Denial, Anger, Forgiveness, Depression, Letting Go, and Acceptance*
    • Men may contact one of our peer-counselors to talk through your struggles:
      • Alex Chobanian:  262-989-6553 or alexchobanian@gmail.com
      • Paul Powell:  1-800-320-0401 ext. 2 or pwpowell@gmail.com
    • Men’s Bible Study – Healing a Father’s Heart: an insightful Bible study that helps men acknowledge and face their inner turmoil. According to the authors of this study, abortion inflicts pain on men as well as on women. These fathers are “silent, wounded warriors” who are suffering from fear, anxiety, anger, guilt, grief, and depression. Men who have lost a child to abortion often have an unexplainable need to defend their masculinity, causing confusion and strife in their relationships. Men will learn about God’s unchanging, loving character and His desire to forgive them and heal their father-hearts.**

Retreat Healing Option:


Our next retreat dates are:

Rachel’s Vineyard is a weekend retreat for women and men burdened by the trauma of abortion. If only women are registered, there will only be women leading the retreat. If both women and men register, then we will have men on our leadership team as well. Couples are welcome to attend together. If one or more couples register, we try to have a couple on our leadership team.

Just when we felt our hearts would break beyond repair, we discovered a place where we could talk about our pain, and place our hearts in the loving hands of others who understood.

This very unique and gentle weekend retreat allows you to walk through the healing process at your own pace. There is time for individual help and time for group work, time to cry and a time to rest. There is even time for walks along the lakefront.

Come, let the healing begin. . .

You can visit Rachel’s Vineyard website to see our local listing (under North America, United States, Wisconsin, Lake Geneva WI), or to find another retreat that may be closer to you.
