Women of Witness introduces new ministry for women

| September 28, 2019

COSHOCTON – Freedom Road Ministries is a new program of restoration and encouragement for women being offered by Women of Witness.

The group will meet from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. on Sundays starting Oct. 13, at the Word Worship Center on the corner of Eighth and Orange streets.

“We have a jail ministry and this idea came to us because so many girls are in jail because of alcohol and drug problems,” said Robin Gross. “I found the program, researched it and created it. It’s for those with addiction, but also those who may be in bad relationship or even have food issues. We will encourage the ladies coming out of jail to come, but really anyone can benefit from it who wants to change old habits or deal with issues.”

Meetings will begin with some quiet time and praise and worship music. Participants will then move into class time. Snacks will be provided.

“We will encourage church attendance and for everyone to look for sponsors or someone to support them,” Gross said. “We will do what we can for them too.”

The classes will be based on the Beatitudes that Jesus taught in the Gospel of Matthew.

“The focus is more or less on healing and changing attitudes,” Gross said. “The concept is that they are traveling the road to freedom. Changing attitudes can help you take the next step and get around the next bend.”

Three other ladies have committed to helping Gross with the classes.

“We love the Lord and have a heart for helping ladies,” she said. “We are looking forward to being a help in the community and are looking to the Lord to help us with this.”
