HELP, HOPE AND HEALING FOR SEXUAL ABUSE SURVIVORS
Samaritan Safe Church is a national program for adult survivors of child sexual abuse. Community Evangelical Free Church, Susanville Church of the Nazarene, Valley Christian Center, Susanville Assembly of God, Lassen Missionary Baptists Church and Eagle Lake Community Church have joined together to offer a community outreach retreat from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 6, for individuals seeking healing solutions to move from a victim, to a survivor and at last becoming a thriver over their traumatic experiences and adversity. The long term physical, spiritual and emotional impact of sexual child abuse can rob a person and their family of a life of peace, hope and healing. While it isn’t always easy to talk about how to move forward when there has been so much pain, this retreat might be the first step for someone suffering to heal the grief within.
The program will be led by Peter Celum, M.Div of Christian Counseling & Conciliation and Shayla Ashmore, LMFT, Director of the CHAT program at Lassen Family Services. They will be using art, music, writing and reflection, in addition to discussion in order to raise awareness of this issue and inspire others to use their power as adults to protect children from sexual harm. Space is limited for this retreat which will take place at Eagle Lake Community Church in Spalding. See their ad for registration details and more information about this enriching program. Limited registration scholarship assistance is available for those with a financial hardship.
