Healing Group

  • OMSC, Great Commission Hall 490 Prospect Street New Haven, CT, 06511 (map)
“The Lord is near to those who are discouraged; He saves those who have lost all hope.” —Psalm 34:18 (GNT)


We all live with the consequences of a fallen world, and some of us carry deep wounds with us. The Church is uniquely called to respond. It offers an explanation for suffering, a loving community, access to a God who wants to hear our honest laments, and a Savior who both knows what unjust suffering feels like and whose death and resurrection bring healing and forgiveness.

Please join our small group to bring healing to wounds of the heart—emotions, spirit, and soul—from trauma or loss. If you suffer from hopelessness, ongoing sadness, unexplained anger, feelings of isolation, or unprocessed grief, whatever the source, this small group may be for you.

The group, which uses the proven and time-tested model of the Trauma Healing Institute at American Bible Society, will be led by OMSC-resident facilitators who are trained in Scripture-based trauma healing. Together, we will make a safe space for group members to:

  • Discover what the Bible says about suffering
  • Learn about trauma and its effects
  • Explore any trauma or loss you may be carrying
  • Release some of the emotional pain you carry
  • Help you get unstuck and reconnected
  • Build resilience for the future
