The Healing Place now has an administrative office site that is nothing short of gorgeous.  Located at in Mechanicsville, it is a large inviting space that will house our administrative team, but it will also be the place where we will invite the hurting and broken into the presence of the Lord through individual counseling and small groups.  We wil also offer some day retreats later this year.  We are almost moved in and hope to share more soon!  Surely, we have known the faithfulness and the goodness of God!
