Widows of Faith at Restoration Church is a group designed to meet the unique needs of widows of any age in a non-professional capacity. We recognize the vulnerabilities and difficulties faced by grieving widows. Widows of Faith offers Biblical, practical, sensitive information and encouragement from widows who have navigated through the trauma of losing the love of their life. Connecting to other widows can be a powerful force of encouragement, wisdom and moving forward. In addition to regular meeting, with study of relevant topics, there are activities planned for socialization and fellowship.
