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.
If you have any questions or would like more information about Rapha, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. In addition, we also have a list of Frequently Asked Questions that we hope will be a helpful resource for you.
INTRODUCTION TO RAPHA
Out of Darkness into Hope: How Christ brings Freedom
When: Friday, February 24th (6:30-9pm) & Saturday, February 25 (9am-6pm)
Where: The Commons at Baxter & Love
Cost: Free! (A freewill offering will be taken during the workshop.)
Registration: Register online, email email@example.com or call 406-922-0190
Darkness is in and all around us – in movies and computer games, in the suffering that we and others experience, in our friendships and relationships. How should we respond to others’ encounters with darkness? What do we say to someone going through a tragedy? If someone has nightmares or our child has a friend who is frightened by ‘demons’, what response would be most helpful? Do we know how sin and darkness clings to us, hides itself in us, sometimes even masquerading as goodness? How do we get rid of such damage.
God expects each of us to walk without fear, and bring His Light and hope into the dark places of the world around us. He wants us to be able to deal swiftly with the sin and darkness that encroaches into our own life, as well as help others do the same. In this workshop we will look at light and darkness from God’s perspective and what resources God gives us, for our own life, for our families and for those around us. We will explore the gift of discernment, the role of angels and we will learn together how to grow the maturity in Christ that allows us to ‘distinguish good from evil’ (Heb 5:14).

Other Upcoming Events
Rapha Missional Community (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 Jenn at email@example.com or 406-577-1740.
Our next gathering is Friday, February 17th.
Rapha Women’s Evening
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.
